Redskins Lose Fourth Straight 30-20 to Cardinals



    The Redskins lost again, but you already knew that.

    This time, they did so to the Cardinals by a 30-20 score, their fourth straight loss in a season that most of you probably wish would already end. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it isn't even half over. 

    After falling behind 7-0 on a Michael Floyd 20-yard touchdown catch, the Redskins countered when Kirk Cousins threaded a pass to DeSean Jackson, who took off for a 64-yarder. All three of Jackson's touchdowns this season have been at least 60-yard catches, justifying his deep-threat reputation. He may have had another one later if not for Chris Chester, who happens to also play for the Redskins, knocking Jackson over as he charged downfield to block for the wide receiver.

    Larry Fitzgerald caught a touchdown late in the second quarter to give Arizona the lead for good. Then there were some field goals, Andre Roberts fumbled and Brian Orakpo dropped a sure interception that people got mad about. Another field goal followed. Oh, and Cousins threw more late-game interceptions, the last of which was returned for a touchdown. That more or less covers it. 

    The Redskins will face the Titans at FedEx Field next Sunday.
