The Good

Kyler Murray – for the second week in a row, Murray won the game with his feet.  He rushed for 67-yards on Sunday, including two touchdowns.

One of his touchdowns went for 21-yards.  He had another called back but threw for a touchdown to receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Zane Gonzalez – a week after going 1-3 on field goal attempts, he went 3-3 on Sunday against Washington.  The three field goals came up huge as the Cardinals offense sputtered at times trying to punch it in the end zone.

Corey Peters – the defensive tackle had a very nice game.  He had a sack and also tipped a pass that could have turned into something big for Washington.  The 11th-year player has shown he still has a lot left in the tank.

Kenyan Drake – it was a slow start for him but he came up big when it mattered most, in the fourth quarter.  He helped run the clock out for the Cardinals, finishing with 86-yards on 20 carries.

Third Down Defense – The Cardinals for the second week in a row stopped their opponent on third down. After holding the 49ers to 2-11 last week, they held Washington to 4-12 on Sunday.
