Redskins lose another heart-breaker to the Cardinals 31-23

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 hard test.

On offense, the Redskins managed to take advantage of two of Arizona's perceived weaknesses: a rushing touchdown from inside the red zone and a passing touchdown from outside the opponent's 20 yard line.

Up by one point with 4 minutes remaining, the Cardinals went for it on fourth-and-1 from their own 34-yard line. Next week, the Cardinals head to Florida to face the Miami Dolphins. When Washington needed a stop against Arizona, they let the Cardinals put the game out of reach with a touchdown pass.

There was no question inside University of Phoenix Stadium who was getting the ball.

Washington (6-5-1) got the ball after the touchdown and promptly went three-and-out.

The game has a scheduled start time of 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the Fox network or online through free live stream (details below). This marked the second consecutive game that Jackson has recorded a catch of 50-yards or more. Arizona has been woeful this season and while they will eat up the Skins run defense with Johnson I think the Washington aerial attack is the difference as they get the win on the road. Edgerrin James was the other. But Johnson gained 84 yards rushing on 18 carries, gained another 91 on nine catches, scored touchdowns both ways and had Fitzgerald saying after the game that Johnson should be NFL MVP. He needs five receptions to tie Cris Carter, and a sixth reception would tie Marvin Harrison for third place all-time with 1,102 catches. That's likely where Fitzgerald will end up - he's more than 200 catches away from Tony Gonzalez, and no National Football League player is even in the ballpark of Jerry Rice, whose 1,549 career receptions are the gold standard.

The election returns answer many questions, but they don't answer the question that has puzzled me throughout the election season. I hope this new behavior is genuine because it's a lot more agreeable and pleasant to deal with.

Fitzgerald's connection with Palmer has been the saving grace for a Cardinals' offense that has received very little production from its wide receiver corps this season.

Crowder ran down the seam and beat Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson on that touchdown play.

In the third quarter, Cousins was stripped of the ball by Calais Campbell, and Markus Golden returned the fumble 20 yards to set up Palmer's 6-yard touchdown pass to Michael Floyd. On the next Cardinals possession, the Redskins defense allowed the Cardinals to march down the field and score on a Palmer to Johnson 25 yard touchdown pass. It was a good team.

Near the end of the second quarter and early into the third, the defense managed to keep the offense within striking distance. However, they are now in real danger of missing the playoffs and a lot of fingers are pointed at quarterback Carson Palmer, who hasn't come close to duplicating his 2015 season in 2016.

Despite their 31-26 Thanksgiving Day loss to Dallas, the Redskins (6-4-1) lead the crowded competition for the NFC's No. 2 wild-card spot.

Of course, they need help, but they showed they can be a risky team down the stretch.
