Peterson matches career low for carries in loss to Vikings

New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson‘s debut with his new club didn’t go nearly as well as he anticipated.

Peterson ran the ball six times for 18 yards against the Minnesota Vikings, matching his career low for carries, according to NFL Media Research Group.

Peterson’s 18 rushing yards also tie the third-lowest total of his career.

The seven-time Pro Bowler needed to make some adjustments off the field as well. Peterson was caught by the broadcast apparently yelling at Saints head coach Sean Payton, finally getting his attention after several attempts.

Peterson received a warm greeting from the Vikings’ fan base during the initial stages of the game, rushing for nine yards on the first play from scrimmage. It was downhill from there, however, as Peterson and the Saints sputtered to a 29-19 loss.
