Highlights: If the Redskins had won Sunday instead of being upset by Boomer Esiason and the Arizona Cardinals in overtime, second-year wide receiver Michael Westbrook would have been celebrated all over town for a career-high six receptions for 91 yards and one touchdown.Also, defensive tackle Marc Boutte intercepted an Esiason pass in the third quarter, lunging far to his left to bat the ball in the air and then diving to catch it before it hit the ground.Lowlights: Breakdowns in the secondary occurred often, especially on third-down plays in the nickel defense.
