Week 10 Ups and Downs: Minnesota Vikings at Washington Redskins


Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright (17) carries the ball past Washington Redskins free safety D.J. Swearinger (36) for a touchdown during the second half of an NFL football game in Landover, Md., Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017.

On the offensive side of the football, running back Jerick McKinnon leads the way.

All week, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he expected defensive end Griffen would play after injuring his foot on the last play of the team's October 29 game against the Browns. Sunday, Rudolph will add to that and will be the leading receiver for the Vikings.

Thielen had eight catches for 166 yards. Keenum has been successful, albeit unspectacular during the win streak, averaging 213.75 yards while throwing for four touchdowns total against three interceptions.

The Vikings looked to be in great shape with a 35-17 lead before Keenum threw balls that were picked off in the third quarter and early in the fourth by Swearinger. Running backs Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson have solid days.

ABOUT THE REDSKINS (4-4): Washington's pass catchers are riddled with injuries, with tight end Jordan Reed and wideout Jamison Crowder nursing ailing hamstrings.

In the end, I think the Vikings come away victorious and win their fifth straight game.

I have the Vikings winning this one 40-26, and improving to 7-2 and maintaining its first place position in the NFC North amidst a matchup with first-place Los Angeles Rams at U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 9.

But, more importantly, what were the good, bad, and interesting things that happened in Week 10 between the Vikings and Redskins.
