Every week, Redskins running back Adrian Peterson continues to climb in the record books.
In the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest against the Giants, Peterson scored from one-yard out, cutting the Giants' lead back to seven. The touchdown was also Peterson's 111th rushing score of his career, passing Chicago Bears legend Walter Payton on the all-time rushing touchdown list.
Peterson now stands alone for fourth all-time on the list. He now joins Emmitt Smith, LaDainian Tomlinson and Marcus Allen as players who have rushed for 111 touchdowns or more in their career.

Peterson gifted the touchdown ball that tied Payton to Terry McLaurin for his exceptional block on the play, but it's likely he'll want to keep this one for himself. Unless, of course, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton comes calling.
