Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson went Beast Mode on his way to the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Here's another angle:

On 4th-and-inches, Peterson burst through a hole. The star was met by a Cowboys defender at around the 5-yard line, but he kept moving his legs. With the help of a teammate, he managed to stay on his feet and get through a couple of Dallas defenders on his way into the end zone.

Peterson's 11-yard touchdown run rewarded Vikings coach Leslie Frazier for going for it on fourth down. After a missed extra point, the Vikings held a 23-20 lead.
