Cardinals Vs. Rams Score Update: Cardinals Lead 20-13 Early In Fourth Quarter

We saw the St. Louis Rams score a touchdown on a punt return midway through the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, and Arizona's Patrick Peterson returned the favor as part of a dominant third quarter by the Cardinals.

After taking a 13-10 lead in the midst of the third quarter thanks to a couple of nice drives, one initiated by another Rams fumble, Peterson caught the ball at roughly the Arizona 20-yard line and took things from there:


It's been an incredible season so far for Peterson, who's proving to be the one player that's Devin Hester's equal when it comes to returning kicks. This return was his fourth punt return touchdown of the season, already tying the record that Hester set back in 2007. Hester has a league-record 17 return touchdowns in his career, but so far Peterson is showing that he has the skills to challenge that mark.

The Rams managed to respond with a solid drive, concluding with another Josh Brown field goal, but they're still trailing early in the fourth quarter after Brown recently missed another field goal opportunity.
