Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals and Devin Hester of the Chicago Bears will both take their electric talents to the field at University of Phoenix Stadium Sunday.
Peterson and Hester are two of four players in NFL history to return four or more punts for touchdowns in a single season. Despite their past, both have not had explosive 2012 seasons.
Hester is averaging just nine yards per return, well below his career average of 12.3 yards. Peterson has also been slowed, averaging just 8.6 yards per punt return and has lost three fumbles. Hester and Peterson are both currently without touchdowns this season, but that could change quickly.
Even though Peterson has been without a big return in 2012, he is making sure it does not affect the rest of his game.
"It doesn't bother me," Peterson said. "At the end of the day the Arizona Cardinals drafted me to be a defensive back. The punt returns are a plus. When my opportunities comes, I will try my best and I want to break one."
Kickoff between the Cardinals and Bears is scheduled for 2:25 MST.
