The Rams looked ready to go for the big ball when St. Louis tailback Stephen Jackson threw the ball back to his quarterback Sam Bradford on a flea-flicker, as Bradford aired it out for Brandon Lloyd. Bradford's pass was underthrown though, and Peterson was in position to make a play on the football and intercept this ball and kill the chances of the Rams to score on this possession.

This interception is all the more impressive because it came off the heels of perhaps one of the most impressive interceptions in LSU Tiger history by Eric Reid last night against Alabama.

So Peterson's pick is only the second most impressive interception by a Tiger this weekend. I think Peterson will be happy with that though if he can join LSU in the win column.
