Bradford won't shy away from Cardinals DB Patrick Peterson

Cardinals won't be able to scare Sam Bradford from Stefon Diggs easily.

The Minnesota Vikings haven't had a lot of positivity on offense the last few weeks, and it looks like the Arizona Cardinals plan to try to take away one of their few bright spots.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has a plan to try and slow Vikings leading receiver Stefon Diggs.

Diggs has 61 receptions and 710 yards receiving. He also has a pair of touchdowns. He's been even more of a factor over the last two weeks catching a total of 26 passes (13 each week) for 244 yards.

While a lot of quarterbacks stay away from Peterson, don't expect to see Sam Bradford shy away from him Sunday.

"Patrick is a great player, and he's one of the best cornerbacks in the league, but I think Diggs is a really good receiver as well," said Bradford Wednesday. "As a quarterback I really don't think you can let it affect your progressions too much."

The Cardinals have one of the toughest secondaries in the NFL anyway. They've intercepted nine passes and have held opposing quarterbacks to completing less than 60 percent of their passes.

With the Vikings running game stuck in neutral, they may need to find a way to beat the Cardinals through the air.
