Cardinals vs. Redskins: What was the play of the game?

New, comments

There are a few to choose from.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday's game surely wasn't the most attractive the team has played this season, but it was a win and leaves the Cardinals now firmly in the lead of the NFC West. Time to decide what your favorite play.

Michael Floyd's 20-yard touchdown

Palmer made a great throw in tight coverage and recognized that the window was there when the safety went down to cover Housler. Floyd then did his part using his body and sure hands to score his first TD of the season.

Larry Fitzgerald's 24-yard touchdown

Unlike Floyd's score, Fitzgerald caught the ball off a slant after beating the coverage inside, he broke a tackle from Ryan Clark and held onto the ball as E.J. Biggers attempted to strip it and topped it off by running right into the end zone for his first touchdown of the year.

Chandler Catanzaro's 49-yard field goal

Another game, another insanely long field goal for Catanzaro to (easily) make. This kid's leg is old faithful and this kick was important by making sure it was a two score game as the 4th quarter began.

Jerraud Power's 6-yard interception

Another highlight for a career year, he's now tied in leading the league interceptions. It was a botched play by the offense and Power's took advantage. It was a huge play in the 4th quarter with 4:13 left in the game as Washington tried to mount a comeback.

Rashard Johnson's 28-yard interception touchdown

Icing on the cake. While not necessarily a game-changer it effectively ended the game. With how the Redskins had just previously marched down the field with large catches it wasn't inconceivable for them to get into field goal range and send it into overtime.
