Leigh Torrence – up

Fourth cornerback helps make top play

Santana Moss – up

Accounts for nearly half of the Redskins’ receiving yardage

Chris Cooley – up

Accounts for nearly the other half

Jason Taylor – up

No sacks but three tipped balls.


Carlos Rogers

The Redskins cornerback recovered a fumble and had a 43-yard interception return that turned the game around and generally well represented a secondary that mostly contained Cardinals receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.


Score: Redskins 17, Cardinals 17

Quarter: Fourth.

Situation: Cardinals’ ball, second-and-8, Arizona 21, 13:16 remaining

The play: Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner spotted receiver Steve Breaston deep and over the middle. Breaston appeared to beat cornerback Leigh Torrence, but Torrence recovered and caught up. The ball struck Torrence somewhere in the back and bounced high. Cornerback Carlos Rogers intercepted and returned the ball 42 yards to the Arizona 15. Two plays later the Redskins scored.

Up Next:

Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys

Where: Texas Stadium, Dallas

When: Sunday 4:15 p.m., Ch. 5, 45, ESPN 980

Outlook: The teams split last year with each winning at home. The Redskins have won two straight. The Cowboys are 3-0 heading after Sunday night’s showdown in Green Bay. Quarterback Tony Romo, running back Marion Barber and wide receiver Terrell Owens aren’t quite the reincarnation of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin, but they’re close enough. The Cowboys ranked second in the NFL in offense entering Week 3. The defense, missing safety Roy Williams (broken arm), is ranked 10th but is prone to giving up the big play.
