Lions-Cardinals to feature premier WR-CB matchup Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) The Mutual Admiration Society has two steadfast members in the NFL fraternity - Lions super wideout Calvin Johnson and Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson. The two will be going head-to-head Sunday at Arizona.

"No doubt there's respect," Johnson told MLive.com. "You've got players that play hard out there on the field, make plays for their team. So, there's definitely a big level of respect there."

Peterson feels the same about Johnson, calling him "by far the most dynamic and athletic receiver in the league" during a recent radio interview.

Johnson, however, will likely not be matched up against Peterson throughout. Antonio Cromartie could also line up against Megatron at times, though his primary assignment will be Golden Tate.


Cards' Peterson: 'Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) As he prepares to face Lions wideout Calvin Johnson on Sunday, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson told SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio that he's put his rough start to the season behind him. Peterson quieted Dez Bryant in Week 9, then intercepted his first two passes of the season Sunday against the Rams, returning one 30 yards for a touchdown.

"I was disappointed in my first half of the season, I believe I wasn't playing to my standards," Peterson said, via NFL.com. "I was fighting through injuries. Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner, and I'm ready to roll from here on out."

The Cardinals and Lions are playing for the third straight year. Though Johnson caught 16 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two matchups, the Cardinals won both.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson: I need to play better


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is dissatisfied with his performance this season. The NFL's highest paid player at his position believes the scrutiny comes with the territory.

"Is that something I might shy away from?" he asked per the team website. "Not at all. Is that something I'm scared of? Am I worried about the concerns or the criticisms? Not at all. We have 11 more games to go. I have a lot of games left to improve, because I do believe I am not playing to the best of my ability right now. That's definitely going to change."

Peterson was upset with one particular play -- the slant to Washington wideout DeSean Jackson last week that resulted in a 64-yard touchdown. Peterson admitted that he did not get his head around fast enough to make a play on the ball.

His opportunity to perform better the rest of the year begins Sunday in Oakland.


Raiders' Carr won't play scared against Cardinals' Peterson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has expressed tremendous respect for Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, but he will not shy away from throwing the ball in his direction Sunday.

"It's not an arrogant thing," Carr told ESPN about challenging premier corners. "It's not one of those things at all. Trust me, I know where they are and I'm very careful about where we're throwing at, what routes we're throwing.

"Patrick Peterson, obviously, is one of - it depends who you talk to - is the best, or one of the best, corners ... in the NFL. You just turn the film on and you're like, 'Wow, that guy plays corner? He looks like a linebacker and runs a 4.1' or whatever. He's a great player. I'll know where he is every snap, but to me, I have to go through my reads."

Cardinals DST carries more risk than last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Cardinals DST finished sixth in Fantasy points last season while ranking first against the run. This is not that defense.

Arizona lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (torn ACL) and linebackers Karlos Dansby (free agency) and Daryl Washington (suspension), among others. That trio accounted for 14 sacks, six interceptions, two touchdowns and a fumble recovery. Linebacker John Abraham (11.5 sacks) reported late to camp following a DUI arrest and at age 36 is unlikely to repeat his 2013 production.

The Cardinals are counting on 34-year-old Larry Foote and unproven Kevin Minter at linebacker. Safety Tyrann Mathieu (knee) is not 100 percent yet. Arizona did add corner Antonio Cromartie to team with superstar Patrick Peterson.

Monday night, Arizona hosts an efficient Chargers' team that gave up the eighth-fewest Fantasy points (7.3 per game) to DSTs last year. Consider the Cardinals DST a low-end starting option at best.

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
