Redskins Hosting Adrian Peterson



The Washington Redskins are scheduled to host free agent running back Adrian Peterson for a visit on Monday, according to NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafalo.

Peterson started last season playing for the New Orleans Saints before being traded to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Redskins are in dire need of depth in their running back room as they recently lost rookie running back Derrius Guice to a torn ACL, and will be without both Samaje Perine, who is out with an ankle injury, and Byron Marshall who is also dealing with ankle injuries.

Washington drafted Guice with the hopes that he could take on the workload of a lead back, and with no proven lead back waiting in wings, in the wake of his season ending injury, it makes sense that they would explore the free agent market.

While Peterson wasn’t the productive monster he had been throughout his career during his time with New Orleans and Arizona, he did show flashes of his former self when he received more opportunities with the Cardinals, who were compensating for the loss of their lead back, David Johnson.

Washington only has Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, and Kapri Bibbs healthy at the moment, after waiving injured running back Martez Carter on Sunday in a move that could be seen as a precursor to the signing of Peterson, should his visit go well.


Arizona Cardinals

Three Takeaways from the Detroit Lions road victory against the Arizona Cardinals 17-3, somehow keeping their playoff hopes alive



1. Zach Zenner showed up to play this week

Late in the game, Zach Zenner got a few series at running back and he made an immediate impact. He helped the Lions drive down the field and score their only offensive touchdown of the game. Not only did he do that, but he helped ice the game by getting first downs late in the 4th quarter. Zenner finished with 54 rushing yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. 

2. Jarrad Davis was all over the place on defense

Davis is really starting to get in his zone on defense. He was breaking up pass plays, stuffing the run, and even got himself a sack in this game. Davis finished with eight tackles, one sack, and pass deflection. Throughout his first two years in the league, Davis is improving week by week and it is a great sign of things to come at linebacker for the Lions.

3. The offense continues to struggle each week while the defense has improved each week

If it wasn’t for Zenner’s spark and Darius Slay’s interception for a touchdown, the rest of the Lions offense was only able to manage three points. While fans should understand that the offense will struggle due to injuries, etc. it shouldn’t be as bad as it is. Stafford only threw for 101 yards because every pass was short and everybody struggled to get open. As long as Marvin Jones and Kerryon Johnson are still on the sidelines, there is nothing really positive going for the Lions offense.

With this victory, the Lions still somehow have a chance to make the playoffs. While they will need lots of help from other teams, the possibility is still there. Now, this victory wasn’t against a very good Cardinals team, but the defense still looked really good and was a major factor in the Lions winning. With three games left in the season and two of those being divisional games, it will be very interesting to see where the 2018 season pans out for the Lions.
