Patrick Peterson's one-handed pick tops Week 3 plays

There weren't many highlights in the Cardinals' 33-18 loss to the Bills, but star cover man Patrick Peterson looked more like a wideout on his beautiful one-handed interception early in the second quarter. The Arizona cornerback led the way in Week 3's Top "Performance Moments of the Week," presented by Bridgestone.

After burning the now-inhabited Revis Island the week before, Bills speedster Marquise Goodwin found himself lined up across from Peterson. Buffalo's wide receiver did the thing he knows best on a 3rd and 22, or really any other situation, go long. Tyrod Taylor tossed a deep ball, but it was Peterson who was quite a few steps ahead of Taylor's target.

The ball was well over Peterson's head, so he reached out his right arm and lunged forward to force the remarkable turnover right along the sideline. It was his second pick in three games, already matching last season's interception total. There's a reason why quarterbacks rarely test the corner, and it's not just because you can't spell Patrick without p-i-c-k.

Andrew Luck surely stays at several hotels throughout the season, but there's one Hilton he's extremely loyal to. With the Colts trailing by two and less than 90 seconds remaining, T.Y. Hilton was able to separate from Chargers corner Jason Verrett in the slot in this week's second-best moment. One broken tackle and he was gone, as he 63-yard touchdown lifted Indy to the team's first win of the season.

Also in the countdown: Here's to you, Mr. Robinson. Jacksonville's star wideout had an 11-yard score, which was one of Allen's two on the day against the Ravens ... It was quite a week for one-handed interceptions, as Baltimore linebacker C.J. Mosley also joined the party ... Robert Quinn swatted the ball from Jameis Winston's grasp, leading to a 77-yard defensive score for the Rams ... and one more one-handed grab for good measure, as Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin laid out for his catch against the 49ers.
