After spending five weeks barely playing for the Saints, ex-Vikings running back Adrian Peterson looked like his old self in his debut with the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. 

Peterson burst through a hole and sprinted 27 yards to the end zone to give Arizona an early 6-0 lead over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he's (so far) rushed for more than 100 yards. 

Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns. It's the most yards he's had in a game since Nov. 29, 2015 when he racked up 158 yards against Atlanta.
