Rebuilt Cardinals bring unknown factor into opener vs. Redskins

Adrian Peterson moves up the charts in Week 1 Adrian Peterson Scores 100th Rushing Touchdown

The Redskins pushed the Cardinals defense around throughout the first half, reeling off small-chunk plays on scoring drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards. There's a lot of film to look at from their past history as coaches. It's hard to say if they'll do that as much every game, but it will be emphasized all season.

Quarterback Sam Bradford under pressure.

"We need to get America to realize that this word is racist and that's it, period", Touchine said. "Someone's going to win and someone's going to lose, it's not the end of the world". And we're getting there, we've got a long way to go.

Bradford is especially eager to get back on the field. "I remain hopeful that both those guys will come back in the near future".

But Peterson said it could have been better.

The offense he directs will center around the multi-talented David Johnson, who returns after fracturing his left wrist in the season opener. On the other, he put up just 3.1 yards per carry over the past two seasons.

FITZ IS BACK: Arizona's ageless Larry Fitzgerald returns for his 15th National Football League season. The second drive, Smith did his most serious damage with short passes that turned into significant gains, including an 11-yard pass to Thompson on third-and-seven, a 22-yard pass to Jordan Reed and 10 yards to Jamison Crowder. Maybe Johnson will fulfill his goal of hitting the 1,000-yard mark in rushing and receiving this season.

PHYSICAL PHILOSOPHY: Wilks has emphasized physical play and toughness in his first offseason and preseason programs, and he believes the team has developed an identity, one that's far from the big-play Cardinals of recent years. "Again, it started on the defensive side of the ball", Wilks said.

The Cardinals have said for months their offense is going to run through Johnson, so it makes sense that stopping Johnson would constipate the entire Cardinals offensive system.

SLOW STARTERS: The Redskins are motivated by those four straight season-opening losses under Gruden. His backup, Chris Thompson, added another 128 yard yards from scrimmage.

"We're 0-4, so we should do something different - we haven't won one yet", Gruden said. "I didn't play my best game". We got to start fast and eliminate the turnovers.

A heavy dose of Adrian Peterson worked for the Redskins on Sunday, but Washington will have to win with passing sooner or later.

Adrian Peterson finished it off with three straight power runs up the middle, the last for one yard and a touchdown, the 100th rushing score of the running back's career. But Peterson is off to a good start.
