[4:25 PM] Redskins @ Cardinals

Who will WIN this matchup?

Washington Redskins (6-4)

@ Arizona Cardinals (4-6)


The Washington Redskins missed their big chance to make a run at the NFC East title when they fell in Dallas on Thanksgiving, but a wild-card spot still is there for the taking. The Arizona Cardinals, who host the Redskins on Sunday, are on the outside of the playoff picture looking in and already may have done too much damage with losses in three of their last four games.

The Cardinals were well on their way to the NFC West crown and the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs, but 2016 is proving to be a much more difficult test.

Kirk Cousins is playing out the season under the franchise tag and continues to give the team reasons to sign him to a long-term extension. Cousins threw for 449 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in the 31-26 loss at Dallas – the second time in the last four games he went over 440 yards and his third contest in a row without an interception.

Arizona surrendered a total of 68 points in losses at Minnesota and Atlanta in its last two games, and Arians hinted at selfishness as the cause. Safety Tyrann Mathieu played against the Falcons last week but described himself as “limited” due to a shoulder injury while cornerback Marcus Cooper recorded a career-high nine tackles.

Arizona RB David Johnson went over 100 yards from scrimmage in each of the team’s first 11 contests this season.
