Cards Prepare to Head to DC for the Skins

The Cardinals enter week three at 2-0 for the first time since 1991 and head to the nation’s capital for the first of two east coast road games. The team is looking for its first 3-0 start since 1974.

Arizona is coming off a 31-10 win against Miami in the 2008 home opener at University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinals offense rolled up 445 total yards and 31 points, extending their streak of games with 20+ points to an NFL best straight 10 games. QB Kurt Warner passed for 361 yards and three TDs while compiling a perfect passer rating of 158.3. All three scoring passes went to WR Anquan Boldin who finished with six catches for 140 yards and his first career triple-TD day. Fellow WR Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for 153 yards as the duo eclipsed the century mark in the same game for the 6th time. Boldin’s 22nd career 100-yard game tied him with Jackie Smith for the most in franchise history.


In their home opener last Sunday, the Redskins improved to 1-1 with 29-24 come-from-behind win over the Saints. QB Jason Campbell threw for 321 yards and led Washington to a pair of touchdowns in the final 6:30, including a 67-yard TD pass to Santana Moss. The victory was the team’s first under head coach Jim Zorn.

After Sunday’s game, the Cardinals will stay in the DC area to prepare for their week four contest at the New York Jets.
