Cards top Rams on Peterson's 99-yard return in OT

Patrick Peterson returned a punt 99 yards for 13 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

After the Cardinals defense held strong on the first possession of overtime, Peterson fielded Donnie Jones' 54-yard punt all the way back at the one-yard line.

He went straight up the middle, breaking a number of tackles before bouncing to the right sideline and racing to the end zone for the winning score.

John Skelton threw for 222 yards and one touchdown in place of Kevin Kolb, who missed the game because of turf toe, while Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown pass for the Cardinals (2-6).

Sam Bradford returned after missing the last two games and threw for 255 yards and an interception for the Rams (1-7). Bradford had been out since suffering high left ankle sprain October 16.
