PETERSON RETURNS: Adrian Peterson went from out of a job for most of training camp to Washington's starting running back in less than a week.

"Our O-line set the tone early, especially with the way that we were running the football", Washington QB Alex Smith said after the game.

"He's everything you want in a superstar", Fitzgerald said of Johnson.

Washington had consecutive touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards to lead 21-0 at halftime. The Redskins held Arizona to just 213 yards of total offense and 14 first downs. Washington had the ball for 22 minutes, 57 seconds to the Cardinals' 7:03.

"That was about how you draw it up", Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. "I have a lot of support that keeps me going and keeps me motivated".

The future Hall of Famer ran for 96 yards and a touchdown, and caught two passes for another 70.

In total, Peterson averaged just 3.7 yards per carry.

With a dominant defensive effort, Washington crushed the Arizona Cardinals, 24-6, to win its first season opener since 2012. Redskins safety Troy Apke left with a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter.

If the Cardinals aren't panicking, they should at least be feeling some mild anxiety over the way they played.

Some fans, however, agree that the Reds could win this campaign if their focus was 100% on the domestic league. But Tottenham were careless from start to finish and they paid the price in the 39th minute.

He certainly showed he hasn't lost his touch Sunday against the Cardinals.

New coach Steve Wilks, defensive coordinator at Carolina last season, is promising a physical, power-running approach.

"They're bringing that money in off of a culture, off of a people and they're not honoring us", Castorena said. "I mean, we didn't give them nothing good to watch today".

Rookie wide receiver Cam Sims injured an ankle in the first quarter and was carted off the field.

"I left a lot of yards out there", Peterson said.

AD scored his 100th rushing touchdown in the first half of the Washington Redskins' bout with the Arizona Cardinals, moving him into a tie for seventh all-time with Marshall Faulk and Shaun Alexander, and one score ahead of Sanders.

"Last couple years I really had to kind of force things", Peterson said. It may take a half season to see most of what the Redskins' offense has to offer.

JOHNSON'S DEAL: David Johnson was in no mood to talk about his new contract after what he considered a poor performance.

Peterson, who played for Arizona a year ago and signed with Washington as a free agent on August 20, finished his day with a 52-yard reception, but fumbled at the end of the play. The Cardinals' quarterback, acquired during the offseason, completed 20 of 34 pass attempts for only 153 yards. Still, Johnson was very self-critical. "And then you add CT (Thompson) in there, you know that young guys got me going today". "We got to have a better sense of urgency coming out of the first game".
