Ashburn, Va. (October 10, 2014) – The Washington Redskins head to Phoenix Stadium to face the 3-1 Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. The game will be televised at 4:25 p.m. on Fox.
The teams appear on different trajectories as the Cardinals sit atop of the NFC West Conference with a 3-1 record, while the Redskins are sitting in the basement of the NFC East at 1-4. Still, Coach Gruden is optimistic about turning things around.
“Anytime you’re 1-4, it doesn’t sit well. You know, it’s frustrating. We had high hopes going into this season, but the good thing is we still have 11 games left and we still feel like we have a lot that we can accomplish. So we’ve just got to keep our heads held up and keep working hard and keep plugging and I think good things will eventually happen,” said Coach Gruden.
This game will bit a bit of a homecoming of sorts with former Redskin Lorenzo Alexander now suiting up for the Arizona Cardinals. Lorenzo was let go by the Redskins two years ago in the fall out from the salary cap penalties they were slapped with by the league.
Time does tend to heal wounds, and Lorenzon doesn’t seem to hold a grudge.
“It’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it,” Lorenzon said. “Obviously, I played with a lot of these guys multiple years – Kedric Golston being like seven years, I think. Anytime you line up against your brother, you want to go out there and win and dominate because a lot of these guys I spent a lot of time with in the offseason and training with. You definitely want to have bragging rights. So, it’s definitely going to be a fun experience for me so I’m looking forward to it.”
