GLENDALE http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/christian-miller-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Alex Smith looked like his old self. So did Adrian Peterson.When the 34-year-old Smith wasn’t carving up the Arizona defense, the 33-year-old Peterson was running through it.The result was a 24-6 Washington victory on Sunday, coach Jay Gruden’s first win in a season opener in five tries, and it was even more dominant than the final score would indicate.“You guys put that monkey there. You guys kept reminding me about the dang 0-4 start,” Gruden said. “It counts as one game. I told our team we are 1-0 and now it is time we have to put back-to-back games together.”Smith and Peterson were playing their first game as Redskins and the two veterans made an impact from the start.“I thought the way we came out moving the ball, finishing drives in the red zone was big,” Smith said. “It certainly started with running the football. I thought our O-line was dominant.”Smith, acquired from Kansas City in the offseason to replace Kirk Cousins, completed 21 of 30 passes without an interception and had TD throws of 13 yards to Chris Thompson and 4 yards to Jordan Reed. Peterson rushed for 96 yards on 26 carries, including a 1-yard touchdown ru n.“The sky is the limit (for this offense),” Peterson said. “Alex is doing a great job running this offense and for the past couple of weeks I have seen these receivers go out in practice and grind. The offensive line speaks for itself and then you add C.T. (Chris Thompson) in there. That young guy got me going today.”Peterson, who played for Arizona a year ago and signed with Washington as a free agent on Aug. 20, finished his day with a 52-yard reception, but fumbled at the end of the play.The Redskins outgained the Cardinals 429-213 and had 30 first downs to Arizona’s 14 and it was even more one-sided before the Cardinals showed some life late in the game. Washington rushed for 182 yards to Arizona’s 68.“The nemesis right now is just stopping the run,” Wilks said. “…Tackling was an issue.”Arizona avoided a shutout when David Johnson ran 2 yards for a touchdown with 5:47 to play.Johnson, who signed a three-year, $39 million contract extension with Arizona on Saturday night with $30 million guaranteed, carried nine times for 37 yards and caught five passes for 30 yards.“I’m not even thinking about the contract,” he said. “I’m thinking about the loss and what I did wrong, the mental errors, dropped catches and how bad I played.”Sam Bradford, in his debut as Cardinals quarterback Jordan Scarlett Jersey , was 20 of 34 for 153 yards and was intercepted once.The Redskins manhandled the Arizona defense in a dominant first half to lead 21-0 at the break. And the Arizona team under the new coaching regime was booed roundly as it left the field.The statistics were stunningly one-sided through the first two quarters: 261 yards for the Redskins to 36 yards for the Cardinals. Smith completed 17 of 20 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Bradford, meanwhile, was 3 of 7 for 11 yards. Washington had the ball for 22 minutes, 57 seconds to the Cardinals’ 7:03.“We had three possessions in the first half and we’re down 21-0 at halftime,” Bradford said. “It’s tough on the defense, it’s tough on the offense.”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.Washington, meanwhile, had touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards behind a powerful rushing game and the efficient management of Smith.The first scoring drive went 80 yards in 11 plays, Smith went 13 yards to Thompson on the first play of the second quarter for the score.After Arizona’s first three-and-out, Washington used up 9:06 in a 15-play, 73-yard drive, Peterson plowing in from the 1-yard line to make it 14-0.The Cardinals went nowhere again and the Redskins took advantage of their last chance of the half.Smith completed 7 of 7 passes for 77 yards in a 10-play, 92-yard drive. Smith threw 4 yards to Reed for the touchdown and it was 21-0 with 8 seconds left in the half.INJURIESThree Washington players left the game with injuries.Rookie wide receiver Cam Sims injured an ankle in the first quarter and was carted off the field. He did not return. Washington wide receiver Trey Quinn left in the third quarter, also with an ankle injury, and didn’t return. Redskins safety Troy Apke left with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter.Arizona right tackle Andre Smith left in the fourth quarter with an elbow injury.UP NEXTRedskins: host Indianapolis next Sunday. Washington hasn’t started 2-0 since 2011.Cardinals: play at the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday. Arizona lost at Los Angeles 33-0 last season. CLEVELAND (AP) — Once Baker Mayfield summoned the courage, the rookie quarterback looked in time to see Greg Joseph’s low, line-drive kick somehow go through the uprights.Mayfield’s mouth opened in disbelief.The Browns won again.And in this unpredictable NFL season, Cleveland’s rapid rise may be the strangest twist of them all.Joseph’s 37-yard field goal — a knuckleball the rookie was certain had been blocked — with 2 seconds left in overtime gave Cleveland a 12-9 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.After Mayfield made a clutch third-down throw to help drive the Browns (2-2-1) into position, Joseph, who was cut by Miami this summer and signed after Week 2 following Zane Gonzalez’s release, came through to give Cleveland its first AFC North win in 19 tries.“I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to look at the kick or not Greedy Williams Jersey , so I turned around at the last second and saw it was pretty low,” said Mayfield, who passed for 342 yards and a touchdown in his second NFL start. “It wasn’t a pretty kick but it went in. It also wasn’t a pretty win, but it counts.”Believe it or not, the Browns are legit.They’ve played three overtime games in five weeks, and if not for some missed kicks in New Orleans and questionable call last week in Oakland, Cleveland could be unbeaten.“We have a team right now that is starting to believe in themselves, and rightfully so,” Mayfield said. “I take a lot of pride in the culture change and being positive, always moving forward and doing your job no matter what the situation is. That was big for us.”When the final kick sailed through, Browns fans celebrated just the team’s second win in two seasons and Joseph, who missed an extra point in the first half, was mobbed by his teammates.It was vindication for Joseph, who also missed a 55-yarder at the end of regulation.“I’ll never forget anything about this game, the high points and the low points,” he said. “It was awesome to see it go through, but I’m here for a reason and I believe I can kick in this league.”The Ravens (3-2) had plenty of chances, but Joe Flacco threw a costly interception in the first half and the Browns blocked one of Justin Tucker’s field goal tries.In his first start at home, Mayfield threw a 19-yard TD pass to Rashard Higgins, but his biggest play was a 39-yard completion to rookie Derrick Willies on Cleveland’s winning drive.“Baker just makes plays, man, and he knows what to do in tough situations http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/justice-hill-jersey-authentic ,” Browns guard Joel Bitonio said.The Ravens, who got another strong effort from their defense, also had a chance to win it in the final minute of regulation, but wide receiver Michael Crabtree couldn’t hold onto Flacco’s pass in the back of the end zone.“I should have made that catch,” Crabtree said. “The game would have been over. I put that on me. If I have to catch 2,000 balls a week in practice, I’m going to have to do that.”Tucker then tied it with a 32-yard field goal with 52 seconds left.On their third possession of OT, the Browns started at their own 5-yard line and were at their 18 facing a third down when Mayfield zipped a pass over the middle to Willies, who didn’t have any catches coming in and was playing after Higgins went out with a knee injury.Duke Johnson ripped off a 15-yard run and had two more short carries before the Browns sent in Joseph, a college walk-on who was released by the Dolphins after training camp but got a another chance after Gonzalez missed four kicks in a Week 2 loss at New Orleans.Cleveland’s win was also the Browns’ first in 37 tries on a Sunday, and it gave Jackson his first victory inside the division in three seasons.Flacco finished 29 of 56 for 298 yards and one interception, but Baltimore’s offense struggled to get into a rhythm all day.“We had our chances,” Flacco said. “In these kind of games when you have little chances, you have to be able to take advantage of them. The couple that we had, we probably just didn’t execute well.”ROOKIE ROLLINGBrowns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward continues to dazzle.The No. 4 overall draft pick intercepted Flacco i n the first half and then blocked Tucker’s 48-yard attempt on the final play of the first half.Ward has three interceptions this season, and he’s impressed his teammates with his toughness.“The dude was everywhere again,” Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said. “He’s just on top of guys at all times.”INJURIESBrowns: Jackson said Higgins will undergo an MRI on Monday. He had three catches for 66 yards and the TD before going out.TURNOVER MACHINECleveland’s defense was solid last season, but didn’t force enough mistakes. That’s changed as the Browns now lead the league with 15 takeaways after recording 13 all last season.FLAG DAYCleveland was called for 10 penalties, while Baltimore was only whistled for four, and one of them came in overtime and wiped out a big run by Alex Collins.UP NEXTRavens: At Tennessee on Oct. 14.Browns: Host the Los Angeles Chargers on Oct. 14.
