What Peterson told me about the impact the S.H. had on breaking Eric Dickerson's record: "It definitely impacted my play. I wasn't 100 percent, but I wanted to win a championship. I wasn't going to stop or quit. I made a decision to keep going. I don't want to make it seem like the sports hernia made me miss it, I could have done it with the injury. All I can say is that I would have had better performances."
