Alex Smith, Adrian Peterson help Washington Redskins rout Ariona Cardinals

Here are some things to consider from Sunday's Redskins victory over Arizona. It might sound hyperbolic, but it's no exaggeration.

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' offense finally got something going late in the third quarter, but Bradford overthrew Ricky Seals-Jones and was intercepted by Quinton Dunbar.

His performance came just two weeks after he signed with the Redskins.

The Washington Redskins won their season openers over the Arizona Cardinals 24-6.

Smith passed for 255 yards, and Peterson, playing against his former team, combined with fellow running back Chris Thompson for 294 total yards as the Redskins gave coach Jay Gruden his first Week 1 win in five tries. The big question for Peterson will be what he can do over 16 games, but the early return was strong for Washington. "I was having trouble calling plays because there were so many good ones that I liked that we could get to". "It was some opportunities that I had where I was able to drop my shoulder and set that tempo and show the guys that this is what I'm going to bring every time I touch it". The 33-year-old is one of seven running backs in National Football League history to rush for 100 touchdowns and 12,000 yards. But Peterson added the muscle and handled the duties that the Redskins drafted Derrius Guice to do.

Adrian Peterson didn't waste much time showing his new team what he still could do - and it helped him move up in the record books. Morgan Moses said that Peterson's downhill, freight train style rubbed off on the offensive line.

"You saw early on we were running the ball well", Wilks said.

One injured after rockfall at pristine beach in Zakynthos
One of the Ionian island's main attractions, Navagio has a shipwreck on the shore and is surrounded by steep cliffs . The coast guard said later that those who had headed to the beach on tourist boats had all been accounted for.

And for Peterson, he wanted that nastiness to extend beyond the offense.

"It's not a like a new A.P. or anything", Cardinals linebacker Josh Bynes said.

"When you get behind like that you just kind of have to start calling plays on the go and adjusting to what they're doing with us", Kirk said.

The Redskins host the Colts next Sunday at noon CT.

A Cardinals coach hasn't won his debut game since Larry Wilson did it after Bud Wilkinson was sacked 13 games into the 1979. Think about that. The Redskins controlled the first half of that game.

Arizona will, however, have several nicked up defensive lineman available against Washington. The idea was to stop the run.

There's still gas left in Adrian Peterson's tank. He only landed in Washington because Derrius Guice got injured. "We got to have a better sense of urgency coming out of the first game".
