Packers face challenge in stopping Peterson

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams respects and admires Adrian Peterson.

However, he doesn't want to see the Minnesota Vikings running back break the NFL's single-season rushing record against his team on Sunday.

"If anybody deserves to get the record, it's definitely (Peterson), no doubt about it. But unfortunately, they're playing us," Williams said. "We want to put our best foot forward. It's going to be a tough task; we know that already. But if history is on our side, A.P. had his good game against us already. Hopefully, we can come back and get our good game against him.

"If it happens, we've shown already that he can run for 200 and still win. But we want to play our best ball, we want to control all we can control, and the way the guys are playing, we think that we can put a better performance than we did the first game."
