Peterson is better. He has proven to a major stud on punt returns.
He has three punt returns for scores--that leads the league.
I think his average yards per punt return are 2nd in the league.
As corner backs, they are very close.
Peterson has 2 interceptions and 10 passes defended.
Culliver has 1 interception and 7 passes defended.
"Peterson has incurred nine assessed or declined penalties this season"--2nd in the league.
"Six of the nine were for coverage-related violations on defense."
In corner back play, I would give a bit of an edge to Culliver, but it is very early in their careers.
But, I do think that Peterson's play as a DB has been getting better.
after game note: Culliver had a better game than Peterson!!!!!!!!
The crux of the matter is that Culliver is proving to be a good pick as a corner back.
He is much better than most of this board thought he would be.
