TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals were in fine spirits as they boarded a plane for London on Monday, buoyed by the addition of Adrian Peterson and his impressive debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
There was a noticeable uptick in the team's energy and the home fans' enthusiasm from the time Peterson first touched the ball on Sunday. In fact, he got a standing ovation after his first carry, which went for eight yards.
"That's the type of impact I want to make with my teammates and fans," he said in front of his locker on Monday. "For me, I'm just happy to have the opportunity."
