Peterson returns 4th punt for TD
Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals has tied the NFL
record by returning his fourth punt for a touchdown in Sunday’s
game against the St. Louis Rams.
The rookie returned a punt 80 yards in the third quarter to put
the Cardinals ahead 20-10. He was untouched as he raced up the
middle of the field in becoming the fourth player with four punt
returns in a season.
The others are Devin Hester (2007), Rick Upchurch (1978) and
Jack Christiansen (1951). Christiansen was a rookie when he first
set the record.
Earlier this month, Peterson beat the Rams with a 99-yard return
