Marcus Peters Recognized as Pro Football Focus' Top Playmaking Corner

PFF ranked Peters as the top playmaking cornerback in the NFL since 2015

Pro Football Focus highlighted its top playmaking cornerbacks over the past two seasons on Monday and, not surprisingly, Kansas City Chiefs' corner Marcus Peters topped the list.

Peters, according to PFF's "top playmaker index," ranks ahead of New England's Malcolm Butler and Washington's Josh Norman since 2015.

Since entering the league in 2015, Peters leads the NFL in interceptions (14) and passes defensed (46). He's the first player to tally six or more interceptions in each of his first two seasons in the league since Chris Gamble from 2004-05, and the first Chiefs player to do so since Eric Harris from 1980-81.

Peters is the only player in NFL history to record six or more interceptions and 20 or more passes defensed in each of his first two seasons in the league.

Peters will look to start another impressive campaign on Thursday night as the Chiefs kickoff the season against the New England Patriots.
