Weeks 12 & 14: Vs. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota

Peterson had his first non-Pro Bowl season in 2011, rushing for 970 yards in 12 games. Underwhelming, but he did score 12 touchdowns. In his lone 2011 game against the Bears, Peterson carried the ball 12 times for 39 yards and scored the Vikings' only touchdown. This year he leads the league in rushing. And since the Bears play Peterson twice, it's worth mentioning that even with that 39-yard game, Peterson has averaged over 100 yards in eight games against the Bears, scoring in all but one game.
