Peterson's Game-Winning Punt Return Nominated For Pepsi, GMC Weekly Awards

Still living in the spotlight of his 99-yard game-winning punt return on last Sunday to give the Cardinals a 19-13 overtime win over the Rams, rookie Patrick Peterson has now been nominated for the Pepsi "NFL Rookie of the Week" as well as the GMC "Never Say Never Moment of the Week."

Fans can vote for Peterson on NFL.com for both awards and the winner of both will be announced on Friday.

Peterson's punt return was the second-longest punt return and tied him for the longest overtime play in NFL history. It also made him the first player in NFL history with three punt return touchdowns in the first eight games of his career.

Peterson already has an 89-yard go-ahead touchdown from Week 1 in his highlight reel and is already showing himself to be an asset to both the defense and on special teams. He is one of the lone bright spots on a struggling Cardinals team.

Peterson also had an interception and three tackles in the win.
