The New Orleans Saints traded Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals. If this was 2015, this would have been one of the biggest trades in the last decade. However, in 2016, he sat out most of the year with multiple injuries and looked to be a shell of himself in his first four games with the Saints. This all changed in Week 6 when he gained 134 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In this video, I looked at his 27-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
The Seattle Seahawks don’t face the Arizona Cardinals until Week 10. While their run defense and gap assignments looked much better versus the Colts, it will be extremely important that they play gap sound to limit Peterson as much as possible.
