Arizona Cardinals cornerback Greg Toler was one of the top performers at cornerback for Week 15 of the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. The site honored Toler with a spot on its "Team of the Week," citing his strong performance against the Lions in which he put up some impressive numbers:

A career day for Toler, who gave up zero receptions on six balls into his coverage. He did, however, break up three balls and intercept another that he returned for a touchdown.

Toler's efforts helped the Cardinals snap a nine-game losing streak in convincing, 38-10, fashion. He played a key role in Arizona bouncing back from an embarrassing performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14.

The fourth-year veteran had just six passes defensed and one interception on the year in eight games prior to Sunday's contest. The interception return for a touchdown was the second of his career, and his first since 2010. Toler has played in 36 career games for Arizona, amassing 127 tackles, two forced fumbles, four interceptions, and two touchdowns.

The Cardinals will hope for continued dominance from Toler when they take on the Chicago Bears in Week 16.
