Peterson said that in fact, he had. But it wasn't testosterone or HGH. In Peterson's opinion, he was on something even stronger.
"Man, it's a lot of prayer," Peterson told the Lions linebacker. "The juice of God."
Peterson apparently upped his dosage of God juice before the second Vikings-Lions tilt, because during that game ran for 171 yards, including a sick 61-yard 4th-quarter TD run he punctuated by playfully slapping a boy in the face during his celebration.
Peterson told CBS he regards the PED talk as "a compliment."
"I guess I am performing that well that people think I'm juicing, that I am taking something," Peterson said. "That really shows me how much God has blessed me to be able to come back and play the way I played."
