How Ben Tate fits with the Vikings

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The notion of a running back committee has been foreign in these parts since 2007, when Adrian Peterson burst into the NFL by breaking the single-game rushing record and carrying 238 times as a rookie. After Peterson’s rookie year, the Minnesota Vikings had just one game before this season where they’d given two running backs 10-plus carries on the same day. That came on Dec. 24, 2011, when Peterson tore his ACL.

But Peterson’s absence for most of the season has forced the Vikings to return to the running back committee, staple of the modern ground game and scourge of fantasy football owners everywhere.
