Rex Ryan on Bills' final four games: "We gotta win every one of them." Ryan stops short of saying Bills' destiny is out of their hands; he references how he prematurely did so with Jets in 2009 and they still made playoffs.

The Cardinals keep their playoff hopes alive with a 31-23 come-from-behind win over Washington behind running back David Johnson and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. At 5-6-1, the Cardinals will travel to Miami next week.

The Redskins lost their second consecutive game, falling to the Cardinals, 31-23, in a game where the defense did little to help. Arizona gained 369 yards, but dominated on third downs and made every big play it needed, capped by a 42-yard touchdown pass for the clinching points late. The Redskins now trail Tampa Bay for the sixth and final playoff spot by half a game with four remaining. Two weeks ago the Redskins were in a good spot to control their playoff fate. QB Kirk Cousins threw for 271 yards – he had 89 at halftime. But RB David Johnson killed the Redskins' defense with 175 total yards.

Rex Ryan on Tyrod Taylor: "We feel pretty comfortable with Tyrod." He says there are "other factors" affecting Taylor's play. When asked what, he declines to say and adds, "you guys can figure it out."

Cardinals beat Redskins 31-23. The ViewFromVegas is they ended up covering as 2.5-point home favorites when, leading just 24-23, Carson Palmer hit J.J. Nelson on a 42-yard bomb when it looked like the Cardinals might just run out the clock. That play also put the game over the betting total of 48.5 points.

David Johnson fantasy owners cash out every week due to his versatility and high-volume touches. Johnson produced two touchdowns today with 84 yards rushing (18 carries) and 91 yards receiving (nine receptions) in the Cardinals 31-23 win over the Redskins.

Rex Ryan: "You feel that momentum shift and it snowballs on you. Sometimes I think you lose confidence. ... You can't let that happen to you."

Clean pressure off the edge forced Kirk Cousins to unload the ball on the Patrick Peterson interception. Unblocked safety blitz. That's a free run at the QB. Cardinals get the close out the 31-23 win.

Rex Ryan: "We got on our heels and never got off of them, defensively." Calls it "disappointing" for him personally.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Save a few mental errors, the Steelers showed in Sunday's 24-14 win over the New York Giants that they are peaking at the right time and playing the kind of football they expected to see all year. The defense has an attitude and Ben Roethlisberger was brilliant in a third-quarter scoring drive. All week, the Steelers felt they matched up well with New York and took advantage of their favorable matchups - RBs and TEs on offense, edge rush on defense.

The Dallas Cowboys have qualified for the playoffs with Washington's loss to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday. With a win next week against the New York Giants, the Cowboys can clinch their second NFC East title in three years.
