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.
Two Cardinals were also named alternates to the NFC roster. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and linebacker Daryl Washington were selected as alternates.
