06:32 PM ET 12.14 | When the Arizona Cardinals play the Detroit Lions on Sunday, we may get to witness one of the best match ups in the NFL today. Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is one of the top defensive backs in the game, while many believe Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is as good as it gets at his position - well, except for Peterson. "He's second in my book behind Larry," Peterson said. "I would like to go one-on-one as much as I can." Going one-on-one with a player that has Megatron's skill set is one of the toughest tasks that you could ask for, no matter how great of a player you are in your own right. However, if there is one thing you need to match up with Johnson, it is confidence and Peterson is not short on that. "I think I am the best cornerback in the league right now," Peterson told reporters in a conference call this week. "You know, me and Calvin, we're the same caliber players."

Patrick you aren't even top 10. By the way is this the way you deflect the terrible job you did returning punts this weekend

Whatever happened to letting your play do your talking for you. Would have been much smarter to shut down Megatron first.

It feels like every cornerback in the league claims to be the best.

Or at least want to be paid like they're the best.

Not a smart thing to say with Megatron trying to get Jerry Rice's record.
