Everyone keeps buzzing about who is the best running back in the game today and as a former running back I, decided to look a little deeper into the situation. No disrespect to the rest of the guys in the league but Chris Johnson and Adrian Peterson are the two best hands down. Before I dig into that discussion, let’s take a page out of boxing’s book and examine the tale of the tape on who I think the best two are. These are how they compare in their first 31 games in the NFL.
I am on a mission to find out if the best is Adrian Peterson, the 4th year beast out of Oklahoma on the Minnesota Vikings, or is it Chris Johnson, the 3rd year speed demon out of East Carolina on the Tennessee Titans.
