Arizona Cardinals top 5 plays of 2017
1. Adrian Peterson touchdown run
After Johnson went down in the season opener, the Cardinals running game struggled to say the least. Also struggling was New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson.
He was not happy being a backup for the Saints, the third back in their offense. The Cardinals were a match for Peterson to start off with.
His first game with the Cardinals was at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. What a start he got off to.
Peterson started the game off with 54-yards rushing on his first offensive drive. That included a spectacular 27-yard touchdown run.
The crowd was wild, AP was energetic. For the game, Peterson carried the ball 26 times for 134-yards and two touchdowns.

Peterson only had one more effort that was even close to that, a 159-yard effort against the 49ers. Now he is likely already done as a Cardinal but this play was tops for them this season and will always have it to remember AP by.
