Adrian Peterson is chasing Emmitt Smith, as he wants the NFL all-time rushing record bad.

Peterson has 2017 in his mind in regards to when he might pass Smith, and is hell-bent on making that happen.

The Minnesota Vikings running back is fully aware of the beating Smith's take, and even though running backs supposedly age faster than most players do, the reigning MVP feels like he’s going backwards with age.

During an interview with the Star-Tribune, Peterson stated that in he's getting younger...in his mind.

“I feel like me not realizing that helps me,” Peterson said. "Me not thinking about, ‘Well, my clock is starting to tick, getting older and older.’ That’s not doing nothing but hurting me. So I’m thinking in my mind that each year I’m getting younger. Any way I can look at it with the most positive view that’s going to help me, that’s the way I’m looking at it.”
