The Cardinals had a few penalties that could have hurt them but they did not turn the ball over on Sunday. The two turnovers? They belonged to the Redskins. A fumble by Kirk Cousins lead to a short field and a Palmer touchdown pass to receiver Michael Floyd.
Then as the Redskins were attempting to drive in the final minute, Kirk Cousins missed an open Jamison Crowder and instead found Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson for an interception to seal the victory.
Now the Cardinals take their next step in running the table to hope to have a shot at the playoffs. They have the Redskins, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in front of them in the playoff standings.
The Cardinals did beat the Bucs earlier this season but they do have the loss to the Vikings. Next week, the Cardinals head to Florida to face the Miami Dolphins. Miami was demolished 38-6 on Sunday, so they will come in with a chip on their shoulder as they too are fighting for a playoff spot in the AFC.
