The Redskins waived corner Dashaun Phillips, the team announced. Phillips had opened the season as the slot corner but injured his hamstring and lost his job. He was waived earlier this month and signed to the practice squad and eventually returned to the active roster.

Redskins center Spencer Long is in the concussion protocol and that might force the team to sign another center in case he can't play. John Sullivan would take his place in the starting lineup and the emergency backup would be Shawn Lauvao. But he has not worked at center in a while so the Redskins would sign someone as a backup (or promote Kory Lichtensteiger off injured reserve, if they feel his calf injury has healed and he's ready). They also have center Ronald Patrick on their practice squad.

Redskins tackle Trent Williams will return from his four-game suspension this week and will return to his starting job on the left side. Ty Nsekhe replaced him for the four games and did well, though he had some issues Sunday – perhaps because he's been dealing with a sprained ankle and struggled to anchor and use his strength. "He's our starting tackle and he's the best in the business," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.

Cards dialed up heat late

The Cardinals blitzed two DBs on three of Kirk Cousins' dropbacks in the fourth quarter, and the Redskins QB went 0-for-3. The Cardinals didn't blitz two DBs in the first three quarters and used such pressure on only five dropbacks during their first 11 games of the season combined. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he felt like the team "underachieved" today. He said he didn't like the way the team came out to play.

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.

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.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
