The NFL selected 32 plays from the regular season for a vote on the Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year, and a Cardinals’ favorite made the cut.

Patrick Peterson’s one-handed interception against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3 is the Cardinals’ lone appearance on the list.

With a 10-0 lead over the Cardinals early in the second quarter, Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor boldly fired away from his own 40. While he overthrew Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin, the ball ended up right at the cusp of Peterson’s range, allowing him to corral the one-handed pick.

The play helped the Cardinals try and recover from the early deficit, though they eventually ended up losing 33-18. The interception was the second of three Peterson picked up in the 2016 season.

Fans can vote for their five favorite plays on The winner will be announced during the NFL Honors on the night before Super Bowl LI.
