NFL Week 2 Preview: Washington Football Team at Arizona Cardinals
The Washington Football Team is looking to go 2-0 after an impressive comeback win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday where they overcame a 17-0 deficit and scored 27 unanswered points. They now hit the road to Arizona to take on the Cardinals. Kickoff is at 4:05 p.m. on FOX.
Scouting the Cardinals
The Cardinals finished at 5-10-1 last season for fourth place in the NFC West. Like the WFT, the Cardinals are coming off a win in Week 1, a 24-20 upset on the road over the San Francisco 49ers. Kyler Murray threw for 230 yards and had a touchdown pass as he was 26-for-40 as well as a 22 yard touchdown rush.
Scouting the Washington Football Team
The Ron Rivera era couldn't't have gotten off to a better start and he's brought the best out of his players. At halftime down 17-7, quarterback Dwayne Haskins' halftime speech fired up the team and it translated into success on the field as they completed their comeback.
Haskins' day finished 17-for-31 for 178 yards and a touchdown pass to Logan Thomas. Haskins also had 17 rushing yards, showing he's a capable duel threat under center. Terry McLaurin had a good game with five receptions for 61 yards. Peyton Barber rushed for 29 yards and had a pair of touchdowns.
