Arizona added a subject objective to take a 16-10 benefit on the finish of three quarters.  With the protection taking part in lights out, Washington outscored the guests, 10-0 within the fourth quarter with the deciding landing, a six-yard run by quarterback Sam Howell.  The second-year professional accomplished 19 of 31 passes and a TD move to second-year working again Bernard Robinson.
