While the overall standard of defensive back play in the NFL these days is suffering because of how the rules play to the offensive side of the ball, there are still a number of outstanding performers at those positions. At cornerback, Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis lead the way, while others such as Joe Haden and Patrick Peterson are suggested heirs to the best-cornerback-crown.
In this article, I look at Peterson's play during the 2013 season and compare his development from the 2012 season.
Take the under: this week will see multiple teams with good defenses square off against one another in games including Michigan-Northwestern and Florida-Missouri.
