A few thoughts on the Arizona Cardinals' 30-20 win over the Washington Redskins at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Until pregame introductions Sunday, the concept of looking ahead was put on hold for the Arizona Cardinals.
Sunday's return wasn't perfect for Palmer. He said he felt no physical limits in his shoulder, but a month's worth of rust kept him from completing passes he normally completes and reading plays as fast as he normally does. Even so, Palmer performed better than anybody could have expected.
The Cardinals made Larry Fitzgerald a large part of their game plan Sunday, and he made the most of it with six catches for 98 yards and his first touchdown of the season in a 30-20 victory over Washington.
Carson Palmer did not prove his toughness on Sunday. That verdict was in long ago. There isn't a quarterback in the NFL with heavier mettle.
The Cardinals were neither dominating, nor attractive against on Sunday. But they were coldly efficient when they had to be, and that was enough to beat Washington, 30-20, at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Palmer's return and the turnovers caused by the Cardinals defense helped them to victory against the Redskins.
"I made two people miss and said, 'It's time to get down,' " Mathieu said. "And then I seen 71 (tackle Trent Williams) running. He's fast. I knew he was coming back and I just got down. Very reminiscent of last year. Very."
"I've had major impacts on many games," Fitzgerald said. "I've mentally always prepared myself for a big day. If it happens it happens, if it doesn't it doesn't.
"That's the type of player we thought we had all along, and I was really happy to see it," Arians said. "We'll watch the film, but he stood out because of the sacks, but he got close a couple more times. He started commanding chips, and it's good to see a young guy do that."
Here's a look at the Cardinals victory by the numbers:
