Former OSU, Wagoner corner Kevin Peterson intercepts two passes for Los Angeles Rams in first NFL start
Los Angeles Rams cornerback Kevin Peterson made the most of his opportunity in his first NFL start, intercepting two passes Sunday in the team’s 34-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers at the Coliseum.
Peterson, an undrafted free agent in 2016 from Oklahoma State, started in place of Trumaine Johnson, who played sparingly as coach Sean McVay rested starters ahead of next Saturday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons.
“They said we were going to get a lot of opportunity this game and moving forward into the playoffs to see what we can do,” said Peterson, who picked off Jimmy Garoppolo passes in the first and second quarters. “I just tried to put a bunch of stuff on tape.”
