Vikings win 15-6
Do not expect a ton of points in this game as Minnesota will rely on their rushing attack and their stout defense to earn them a win on Sunday.
With Washington’s offensive line hurting, the Vikings’ pass-rushers will spend most of their day bringing Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins down to the ground. Minnesota’s defense will finish the day with five sacks, one safety, and a bunch of quarterback hits.
On the offensive side of the ball, Vikings quarterback Case Keenum will struggle to get much going as he will have Teddy Bridgewater breathing down his neck for the first time this season. Keenum will finish with a little over 210 passing yards, zero touchdowns and one interception.
To make up for their quarterback’s struggles, Minnesota’s running game will continue to be the most productive part of their offense on Sunday. Running backs Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray will combine for more than 170 total yards and Murray will punch it in on the goal line to score the only touchdown of the game.
Two field goals from kicker Kai Forbath will get the Vikings to 15 points on the day, including one in the fourth quarter that puts the game out of reach and secures a Minnesota win.
