Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson makes incredible one-handed interception

They needed that.

The Arizona Cardinals fell behind the Buffalo Bills 10-0 through the first quarter in their Week 3 showdown thanks to a sluggish start.

At that point, Patrick Peterson made one of the few Cardinals highlights in what became a surprising 33-18 loss.

An aggressive Bills team led by just-promoted offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn dialed up a Tyrod Taylor deep ball early in the second quarter, but Peterson was on top of it. He was playing behind the receiver and made a diving, one-handed interception of the ball down the sideline before falling out of bounds inside the Arizona 10-yard line.

The play somewhat made up for a Buffalo catch by receiver Robert Woods, who earlier in the game outran Peterson and made what was ruled a diving 24-yard catch that appeared to be incomplete.

The Cardinals didn’t challenge the Woods catch, and a play later the Bills’ LeSean McCoy rushed for a 24-yard touchdown to put his team ahead 10-0.

Here’s another look at Peterson’s incredible interception.
