LANDOVER, Md. -- It will go down as just a three-yard scamper in the game log, but Adrian Peterson's second-quarter touchdown vs. the Texans in Week 11 was a piece of history, too.
The score was the 104th on the ground in Peterson's career, which moved him into a tie for sixth on the NFL's all-time list.
What made the moment even cooler is that Peterson did it as a Redskin, and the man he tied for sixth is none other than Burgundy and Gold legend John Riggins.

He's 33 years old, by the way.

It seems like each time No. 26 crosses the goal line these days, he's notching some sort of milestone.
Next on the list he's climbing is Jim Brown, who finished with 106.
Earlier this week, Peterson said his body is feeling "amazing" heading into the back portion of the season. So far, you can characterize his entire 2018 with that word, considering he was a free agent just before the year started.
Update — 3:33 p.m.
On a similar play call but from farther out early in the fourth quarter, Peterson scored his second touchdown of the contest. That put him in sole possession of sixth. What a beast.
