Peterson makes Pro Bowl as a defensive back, Larry Fitzgerald and Daryl Washington named alternates.
One of the few bright spots this year for the Arizona Cardinals has been the play of second-year defensive back Patrick Peterson. On Wednesday, Peterson was named to his second-straight Pro Bowl. this time as a defender.
Peterson was selected to last year's Pro Bowl as a kick returner. His selection to this year's squad as a DB puts him in rare company, as he joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Rod Woodson as the only two players who have made the Pro Bowl as both a defender and a kick returner.
Peterson leads the Cardinals and is tied for second in the NFL with seven interceptions this season.
