Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Peterson had two interceptions in the final four minutes of the Cardinals' 13-10 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium Sunday. The first set up the game-tying touchdown while the second iced the game with :56 to play.

It was Peterson's first career multi-interception game.

The weekly defensive honor is the first for Peterson, who has won the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week Award twice in his career -- both coming back in his rookie season in 2011.

The interceptions were the first for Peterson in 2013. The two-time Pro Bowler now has 11 in his career.
