Who's More Powerful: Adrian Peterson or Jay Cutler?
When the Minnesota Vikings meet the Chicago Bears Sunday at Soldier Field, which offensive weapon will carry the day?
The Minnesota Vikings are looking for their first win, and the Chicago Bears are looking to go 2-0 behind coach Marc Trestman's new offense.
ESPN Chicago's Ben Goessling and Michael C. Wright say running back Adrian Peterson looked like a beast in the Vikings loss last Sunday to the Detroit Lions:
Peterson already appears to be in midseason form, judging from the 78-yard touchdown reeled off on his first carry of the season in last week’s Minnesota loss to the Detroit Lions, and that’s a scary proposition for a Bears defense that admittedly missed tackles it shouldn’t have in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“You can’t really put your guys in a situation where you have a lot of one-on-one tackles,” Bears linebacker James Anderson said. “If you watch that guy, he’ll make the first guy miss. He’ll run through tackles. The more guys we can get to the ball, the better chance we’ll have.”
Jay Cutler, however, started looking like the quarterback everyone hoped he could be in the second half of the Bears-Bengals battle. Steve Ronkowski over at Windy City Gridiron breaks down the Bears' key scoring drive.
So, here's the question for Sunday — which weapon is going to carry the day? Peterson's legs or Cutler's arm?
