Adrian Peterson is hoping to become the first player in NFL history with back-to-back 2,000-yard rushing seasons, but he has plenty of catching up to do if he wants to get there. Peterson has 281 yards through three games, and will need to average 132.2 yards per game to reach 2,000.

Meanwhile, LeSean McCoy of the Eagles is not only on pace to reach 2,000 yards, but he’s on track to set the single-season rushing record. OK, it’s early, but even so, it’s an impressive start for McCoy, who leads the NFL with 395 rushing yards. At that rate, he’d finish with 2,107 yards, breaking Eric Dickerson’s single-season record of 2,105, set in 1984.
