NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was exactly what the doctor ordered for the Arizona Cardinals in their big 31-23 win over the Washington Redskins.

The win was big in a number of instances, it unveiled the move in offensive philosophy, at least for one game from Bruce Arians.

It showed that the Arizona Cardinals defense can make the big play when it is really needed and it showed that their are still issues, no matter the statistics, with the defense overall.

Most importantly, it kept the Arizona Cardinals in a race for the NFC Wild Card, one which it seems like a number of people do not want to be in based on the consistent losses.

It is one of those instances where it seems like whoever figures it out fastest will get that final playoff spot, but who knows if anyone will.

We then talked about the upcoming game for the Arizona Cardinals against the Miami Dolphins, where the Cardinals, on paper, look like the better team, but that has not meant a whole lot this season.

Listen in, leave your thoughts and we’ll be back again next week, talking about another Arizona Cardinals win.
