Adrian Peterson comes back for seconds with two-score Thanksgiving

Adrian Peterson rushed 15 times for 55 yards and two TDs in the Lions’ 41-25 loss to the Texans on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson obviously skipped breakfast, as he came into the Lions' matchup with the Texans ready to feast. Both of his scores came from inside the five-yard line, and he was the preferred goal-line and short-yardage back. He piled up 40 of his yards on the first drive of the third quarter with the game still within striking distance, but after Houston blew the lead open, Peterson was barely involved. With D'Andre Swift likely to return in Week 13 against Chicago, Peterson should revert back to his change-of-pace role.
