DECEMBER 11-- Skins 17 AZ 13

The Skins win on an Antonio Brown 91 yard kickoff return for a touchdown, his first as a Redskin.. Brown was cut, although he likes to refer to his new beginning as just another opportunity after a week one fumble against the Bears.. he was brought back after a rash of injuries to the WR core and Ladell Betts.. Obviously Brown was still returning kicks despite Betts first game in a month..

T Chris Samuels sprained the MCl in his right knee and sprained an ankle on the same play.. he says he is playing against Dallas, a more detailed report on his condition will be provided tomorrow..
CB Shawn Springs injured his back on a tackle of Anquan Boldin from behind.. he left the game, returned, then injured his groin and was held out for most of the fourth quarter.. he will be re-evaluated tomorrow as well.. No other injuries were listed..

DT Joe Salave'a was inactive due to his foot injury, CB Walt Harris did not make the trip after injuring his ankle in Thursday's practice.. LB LaVar Arrington stayed in Washington as well with a bruised thigh..

The Redskins got four first half turnovers yet only ended up scoring 3 points.. In fact there were seven total first half turnovers including 3 Mark Brunnell interceptions in the red zone.. Of all the turnovers the two teams combined for 6 points off them.. The Skins trailed 10-3 at half..

Clinton portis scored on a 15 yard touchdown run using Mike Sellars's jersey as leverage to keep on his feet while he skirted down the sideline.. Portis now has 8 rushing touchdowns this year, he finished over 100 yards rushing for the fourth time in five games.. The scoring drive started the second half and ate up 7:40 of the clock..

The crowd was full of Redskin fans in fact the stands behind the Redskins bench seemed always entirely Redskin fans.. At points in the second half, the crowd was noticeably loud when the Skins asked for them to cheer.. Some started chanting "We want Dallas" at the end of the game..

Sean taylor had his best game as a Redskin.. he had a first half intercpetion, forced one fumble, was part of another hit that cuased a second fumble awarded to Lemar Marshall and joined Carlos Rogers on a 4th and 2 to stop JJ Arrington on what ended up being the Cardinals final offensive play inside the Skins 30..
Washington converted a 3rd and seven running with Portis with just over a minute to go to allow the Skins to sit on the ball and run the clock out..

The Redskins had another odd 2 minute drill at the end of the half calling a timeout on an 8 yard pass reception by taylor Jacobs despite him going out of bounds and stopping the clock.. the Skins then allowed the clock to run after a 5 yard gain where the receiver was tackled in bounds.. Ultimately the Skins ended up punting..

The Redskins held the Cardinals to 60+ yards rushing, Arizona has yet to crack 100 yards on the ground as a team in any game this season..
