Arizona Cardinals’ Patrick Peterson named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Peterson had two interceptions in the final four minutes of the Cardinals’ 13-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium Sunday. The first set up the game-tying touchdown while the second iced the game with :56 to play.

It was Peterson’s first career multi-interception game.

The weekly defensive honor is the first for Peterson, who has won the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award twice in his career — both coming back in his rookie season in 2011.

The interceptions were the first for Peterson in 2013. The two-time Pro Bowler now has 11 in his career.
