Redskins running back Adrian Peterson surpassed Jim Brown for sole possession of fifth place all-time in NFL rushing touchdowns.

Washington stacked the line with bigs, bringing in linebacker Ryan Anderson in as a fullback to lead the way for Peterson, who smashed through the defense for a one-yard score less than a minute into the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

With 107 career rushing touchdowns, Peterson, 34, now trails Walter Payton (110) by three touchdowns for fourth on the list.
