Adrian Peterson may have just reignited the slumping Arizona Cardinals offense. The future Hall of Fame running back busted off 134 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries Sunday.

Peterson, who was traded to the Cardinals on Tuesday from the Saints, rushed for 54 yards on four carries on Arizona's opening drive, topping it off with a 27-yard touchdown up the middle to give Arizona a 7-0 lead a little more than three minutes into Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He told reporters this week that he "still had it." He just showed that. 

He added a second score and topped the 130-yard rushing mark midway through the fourth quarter.

Peterson injected life into a dormant Cardinals run game. He, alone, had more yards on the first drive of the game than the 51.8 yards per game Arizona has averaged thus far this season.
