On his first carry of the preseason, Peterson took an inside handoff and immediately put one of his signature jump-cuts to use, shaking Bengals safety Shawn Williams in the process.
After the initial cut, Peterson immediately bounced to the outside, finding plenty of open field to work with. He could have chosen to run out of bounds and avoid any contact whatsoever (after all, it is the preseason), but chose to stay in bounds and force the Bengals secondary to tackle him.
The end zone, bird's-eye view captures just how impressive the jump-cut and entire 26-yard run was.
The run was vintage AP, giving Redskins fans hope that the veteran still has plenty in the tank to be productive this season.
