The Washington Redskins (1-0) looked sharp in a Week 1 road victory, and Alex Smith and company will look to build on that performance and continue the momentum when they welcome Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts (1-0) to FedEx Field in Week 2 on Sunday.

The story for the Redskins was just how good 33-year old Adrian Peterson looked in the backfield in a 24-6 win against the Arizona Cardinals. Peterson rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries, adding two catches for 70 yards on the ground. Peterson looked sharp and explosive, qualities the veteran back hasn’t displayed in almost three years now. In addition to Peterson, pass-catching back Chris Thompson rushed for 75 yards (on five attempts), and caught six passes for 63 yards.
Alex Smith was efficient, hurling 255 yards and two touchdowns, but it was his mobility that allowed the Redskins to be shifty before the snap and open run lanes against the Cardinals’ defense, which has been effective against the run in recent seasons.
Andrew Luck – who missed the entire 20170 season with a well-documented shoulder injury – had his first start in over a year spoiled.
Tight end Jack Doyle fumbled in the final minute of the fourth quarter, which was returned for a touchdown in a 34-23 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Other than an early helmet-to-helmet hit by Bengals safety Shawn Williams, which implemented the NFL’s new personal foul rule and resulted in an ejection, Luck looked good. Despite throwing one interception, he finished with 319 yards through the air, and had the Colts in position to win the game in the final seconds.
The Redskins might be banged up at receiver, as Paul Richardson did not practice Friday with a shoulder injury and is questionable. The Colts’ running backs barely registered in Week 1, but that might change as Marlon Mack (hamstring) practiced in full on Friday, and is more likely to play Week 2.
