Peterson: "I'm juicing on the blood of Jesus"
Adrian Peterson's connection to Jesus goes far beyond his nickname.
The Minnesota Vikings running back was recently featured in 10 Things I Think I Think on MMQB.com in which he shares 10 thoughts on his career, future plans, and favorite meal. "Purple Jesus" also had this interesting story to share.
"I think the one thing I'll always remember from the field last year happened in Detroit, early in the season. One of the linebackers came up to me—I don't want to say who it was—and he said, 'Adrian, what are you taking? What juice you using? I gotta get me some of that.' I said, 'I'm juicing on the blood of Jesus. Faith is what got me to to this point.' So the Lions came to Minnesota later in the season. That same linebacker came to me and said: 'I appreciate you saying that. You opened my eyes.' That was pretty cool."
