The Cardinals played host to the Washington Redskins on Sunday in an exciting match up between the two NFC teams. The Cardinals won 30-20. Carson Palmer made his first start since week one. The start was a bit of a surprise to most, but Palmer didn't disappoint. He was 28-44 for 250 yards and two scores. The most important thing we saw from Palmer was his toughness and ability to manage the game and help Arizona come away with the victory.
Future Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald finally had his breakout game. He caught 6 passes for 98 yards and a Touchdown. More importantly was the fight Fitzgerald showed on his touchdown catch. He would not be denied the end zone. Ellington added 67 yards on 19 carries.
The win improves the Cardinals to 4-1 and they face the Oakland Raiders next week. The Raiders are winless this season and face the Cardinals at a bad time. The Cardinals are starting to get healthier and with just one loss the rest of the NFL needs to keep a close eye on them. They are a very dangerous team that believes they can beat anybody.
