Patrick Peterson's 99-yard punt return in overtime against the St. Louis Rams won the game for the Cardinals, and Tuesday it won the rookie an award.

Peterson was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Tuesday, marking the first time he's won the award.

Peterson becomes the sixth Cardinals rookie in team history to be selected as Player of the Week and the first since LaRod Stephens-Howling in 2009. Other Cardinals to win the honor are Steve Breaston, Bill Gramatica, Ron Moore and Lonnie Young.

Peterson's touchdown Sunday was his third of the season, an NFL record for a rookie in his first eight games.
