Cardinals' Williams Shows the Way

November 06, 2000|Associated Press

TEMPE, Ariz. — In 10 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, Aeneas Williams has excelled while the team failed--again and again.

On Sunday, with a 103-yard fumble return of Stephen Davis' fumble in the first quarter, followed by a crucial interception, the six-time Pro Bowl performer set the tone for the Cardinals' 16-15 upset of the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins (6-4) dominated the game, but they managed just one touchdown in Jeff George's first start at quarterback, replacing injured Brad Johnson.

MarTay Jenkins took the second-half kickoff 72 yards to set up Michael Pittman's seven-yard run for the other touchdown for Arizona (3-6).

Washington (6-4), coming off a 27-21 home loss to Tennessee on Monday night, had a 27-11 advantage in first downs and led, 331-178, in total yards, but Arizona's defense tightened when it counted most.
