Two interceptions, one he returned for a 60-yard touchdown, made Cardinals cornerback Marcus Cooper the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 2 of the season.
The weekly honor is Cooper’s first. It’s a pretty nice honor for the Cardinals’ personnel department, too. The Cardinals acquired Cooper in a trade with the Chiefs on Sept. 2.
Cooper’s 60-yard touchdown off a tipped pass came in the third quarter of a rout over the Buccaneers last Sunday.
Cooper also had five tackles and three pass breakups in the game.
