Cardinals routed 24-6 by Redskins in Wilks' debut

Adrian Peterson moves up the charts in Week 1

Johnson rushed for 37 yards on nine carries and caught five passes for 30 yards. "They preach on staying in your gaps and doing your job and sometimes players will be out of their gaps and the next thing you know the running backs will be in their gaps". Peterson played part of last season for Arizona and was released in the offseason. DeAngelo Williams previously held the mark, which he set for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016, when he was 33 years and 140 days old. Arizona starting right tackle Andre Smith left with an elbow injury in the fourth quarter. But it was Peterson's 100th career touchdown, one that further cemented Peterson as one of the game's all-time greats.

The Redskins ran off consecutive touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards to lead 21-0 at the half. "Not only do I do it for myself and my family, but I do it for my fan base, as well".

The Redskins host the Colts next Sunday at noon CT. That means Johnson is actually one of the only real veterans of this offense, with quarterback Sam Bradford in his first season in Phoenix as well. At one point on Friday, Williams, his close friend, predicted the success Peterson would have Sunday. Thompson is a major part of Washington's passing game.

Arizona got two first downs on its first possession and went three-and-out the only other two times it had the ball in the first half. Guys trying to make plays when it's not their play, and they're getting out of their gaps. It was probably always going to take a few weeks to get in rhythm. He said he feels better than he has in "a long time". He's still getting in synch with his line; on one occasion, he almost ran into one of the pulling linemen going through a hole. It's hard to say if they'll do that as much every game, but it will be emphasized all season. "Conditioning, I felt strong". "There were some missed holes there, some missed opportunities".

Once Peterson played for Washington in the preseason, there was no doubt he would be its starter. In the first half, when the game was still in question, Peterson ran over and through Cardinals defenders. He showed that he can still run with power and use his speed effectively, as he did on the run in which he surpassed Brown. The flawless mix of play calls left the Cardinals constantly guessing wrong.

Peterson was part of an explosive rushing attack, as Washington gained 182 yards overall. He also added 70 yards on two receptions out of the backfield.

"It's not a like a new A.P. or anything", Cardinals linebacker Josh Bynes said. "Again, it started on the defensive side of the ball", Wilks said.
