Twitter Reacts to the Arizona Cardinals’ 20-15 Loss To The Washington Redskins

New, comments

The Cardinals saw multiple opportunities slip through their fingers on the road, but the fans certainly didn’t with their Tweets.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals won fell to the Redskins in sunday’s matchup. What were the top tweets on the day?

Let’s take a look, starting with some pre-game fun from Larry Fitzgerald:

They don’t call him “Larry Legend” for his Tweet game but you certainly could.

Props to Fitz for the strong Twitter game.

Blaine Gabbert’s start to the game was...less than legendary.

New OT Khalif Barnes entered the game on a 6 OL play with Jermaine Gresham out...a demonstration of how Arizona’s season has gone on the offensive line especially this season.

Meanwhile there was some...interesting commentary from Ronde Barber (as usual).

No “Larry Johnson” mentions in the game however.

Getting back to the QB. Blaine Gabbert was...less than steady in the game throughout. As was the Offensive Line.

Chandler Jones was his usual dominant self, of course. He has 15 sacks on the season and had a HUGE hit on Kirk Cousins in the 4th quarter:

Robert Nkemdiche and Josh Bynes both left the game with injuries, as did standout ILB Josh Bynes and Brittan Golden was carted off with a serious injury.

Story of the season for the Cards, sadly. This game was no different:

However, one standout player on defense? Kareem Martin. He had a dominant game and batted down a Cousins pass and was all over the field today.

The game went back and forth all day long, but the Cardinals just were never able to take the lead. It came down to a 4th quarter 2:10 left on the clock with Blaine Gabbert at the helm.

It started...well both good and bad:

Even the Cardinals own Twitter account recognized the “Cardiac Cards”:

The game came down to Gabbert forcing a ball into Larry Fitzgerald who almost made an INCREDIBLE grab. But...it fell short.

In the end, one sport in the state of Arizona was worth watching today, and it wasn’t this game. Congrats to ASU Basketball!

It’s been one of those years.
