I'd have a Super Bowl ring if Cardinals got Adrian Peterson sooner

Although he wasn't the biggest factor in the game, and Larry Fitzgerald likely deserves this spot if it were performance-based, Peterson showed that he can still succeed as a starter in the National Football League in his debut with the Cardinals and put up some solid first half numbers in the huge win.

Guess who's happy to be out of New Orleans? However, the Bucs weren't done as they drove and found the end zone off of a one-yard Doug Martin rushing touchdown.

Peterson, traded by the Saints to Arizona last Tuesday, had heard all the talk about how he simply didn't have it anymore. "I'd have a Super Bowl ring already".

"For me, I never lost focus".

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston left the game early with a shoulder injury, but backup Ryan Fitzpatrick filled in nicely. And just as the Cardinals' offense punted the ball with 7:38 in the fourth, seemingly giving Tampa Bay the ball with more than enough time to stage what looked earlier to be an unthinkable comeback, Peterson's replacement, Tramon Williams, made a momentum-swinging play. The Buccaneers had no timeouts so Arizona was able to run out the clock. "We have to get him on the field more". Earl Watford started at right guard in place of the ineffective Evan Boehm and did what he could to slow down Tampa Bay star defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. He mixed in a touchdown to John Brown and Troy Niklas on the day, and showed that he can still throw like he used to when the Cardinals were an NFC powerhouse a few years ago.

TOUGH WINSTON: Winston was injured in the first quarter but tried to keep playing. "Me telling him to throw that damn pick, me telling him to throw that slant to Larry, but Larry's got to hold on to that one". "So for him to come out of a game - that was killing him".

"Not concerned at all", he said.

"The first thing that jumped out to me is how much he gets it and how sharp he is".

Head coach Dirk Koetter said that X-rays were negative and that Winston would undergo an MRI on Monday. Peterson may not help much if the offensive line doesn't improve. Humphries (knee) and left guard Alex Boone (chest) returned to the lineup. I got the ball. "What a week to come back".

The third touchdown drive was kept alive by an offside penalty against the Buccaneers on third down, Palmer throwing 11 yards to Fitzgerald for a touchdown to put Arizona up 21-0.

"It's just one drive at a time", Fitzpatrick said.
