GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona and Washington both enter Sunday’s game with momentum, which has been elusive over the past few years for the struggling franchises.

The Cardinals beat San Francisco 49ers 24-20 in Week 1. The 49ers made it to the Super Bowl last season. Washington scored 27 unanswered points in a win over division rival Philadelphia.

The key matchup appears to be Arizona’s productive offense and Washington’s stellar pass rush.

Arizona was balanced in Week 1, passing for 224 yards and running for 180 yards. Washington had eight sacks against Philadelphia, led by Ryan Kerrigan and rookie Chase Young.
