Washington Redskins vs. Arizona Cardinals NFL Picks
We’re leaning toward Washington on this one, though it’s quite close. The early returns on Arizona show promise. Murray had a solid performance, and Hopkins was as good as ever. Great showing as usual, and we will probably see many shots downfield toward the duo of Hopkins and Larry Fitzgerald. Having said that, if Washington can keep it close on defense by preventing those explosive pass plays, they have got enough offensive prowess to keep within a score. Arizona wins this one, but the Washington Redskins keep things interesting.
