St. Louis Rams
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Ken Whisenhunt's wife, Alice, has a new mouth to feed. Fortunately for her, Patrick Peterson seems content with delivery.
Peterson's game-winning, 99-yard punt return for a touchdown in overtime Sunday gave the Cardinals an ugly, improbable, but much-needed, 19-13 win over the equally hapless St. Louis Rams at University of Phoenix Stadium.
It was Peterson's third punt return for a TD this season, making him the only player in NFL history to record that feat in his first eight games. It was also Peterson's second game-winner this season, meaning he's responsible for both Arizona (2-6) wins.
"He's my new son," Whisenhunt said, laughing. "We just adopted him."
So did an entire city starved for a shred of football success following a 5-11 record last season and a 1-6 start to this season.
Arizona was flat-out ugly Sunday. Backup John Skelton struggled to muster any offense in his first start in place of injured Kevin K...

Another look at the big punt return for a touchdown in overtime for Arizona Cardinals rookie Patrick Peterson and it is still amazing to watch. He may still be in a learning process at corner, however he is getting better there. He had an interception to go along with his big return yesterday. As far as his returns, he now has three for touchdowns in his first eight games. ...
The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams were locked in an overtime battle to climb out of the NFC West basement earlier Sunday. Then Cardinals rookie DB Patrick Peterson did the unthinkable.

In September, we brought you Arizona Cardinals' Spanish announcer Gabriel Trujillo's call of Cardinals' WR Larry Fitzgerald's 73 yard touchdown reception vs. the Redskins. It was bueno.
Now, thanks again to the Sports Mashup, here's Trujillo calling Patrick Peterson's walk off 99 yard punt return for a touchdown from this past Sunday. It's also good...
Cardinals rookie Patrick Peterson became the first player in NFL history to return three punts for touchdowns in his first eight games. The secret to Peterson's success was unique practice with his father at an early age.

ST. LOUIS (AP) After a day to mull it over, Steve Spagnuolo's answer was the same: The St. Louis Rams coach would have punted the ball to Patrick Peterson in the shadow of the Arizona Cardinals goal posts, and taken his chances again.
Most Mondays have been tough for the Rams, who are 1-7 at the midpoint of the season, but usually because they've been trying to move past...

There are three major classes of losses for these Rams: blowout losses to superior opponents, a few close losses against superior opponents that we used to...
