Patrick Peterson wanted Julio Jones one-on-one, and ended up getting more than he bargained for. Peterson went on to give up 10 receptions and a career-high 189 yards in a 29-18 loss to the Falcons.
Afterwards, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was honest in saying he doesn’t mind Peterson talking, he just needs to “back up the talk.”
“You better watch out when you call people out,” Arians said, via ESPN.com. “You better be ready to play. If you’re going to call them out, call them out but don’t give up (10) and a career day.”
