The entire NFL had the chance to sign Adrian Peterson. The entire NFL passed.

And so the Redskins were able to sign the 33-year-old future Pro Football Hall of Famer after training camp already started. The entire NFL said he was done.

AD had the last laugh. With 119 yards on 26 carries against the Titans, Peterson passed Eric Dickerson for 8th on the all-time NFL rushing list.

Peterson entered the game needing 77 yards to reach 1000 for the season and in the fourth quarter he eclipsed that total.

Peterson is now under 400 yards behind Jerome Bettis for 7th overall.
