Adrian Peterson, a running back for the Minnesota Vikings, played in a football game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, just two days after his 2-year-old son died in an alleged case of child abuse in South Dakota.

Peterson caught three passes for 21 and ran 10 times for 62 yards in the game whose final score was 35-10 Vikings.

According to Peterson, he "just prayed and asked God to give [him] the strength to get through the game, just play and focus."
