The Minnesota Vikings offense came out meaning business in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins, scoring 4 touchdowns in the game’s first half.
Entering Week 10 of the 2017 NFL season, may experts pegged the game between the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Redskins to be a low scoring affair where the defenses would dominate and points would be a premium.
However, that was far from the case. Minnesota and Washington combined for 45 points in the first half, with Minnesota accounting for 28 of those, scoring four times on their four trips to the red zone.
The first touchdown came during the first quarter when running back Latavius Murray powered in a one yard scoring run from the goal line.
The other three scores came in the second quarter with the first being a short touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Stefon Diggs.
Up next, Adam Thielen got in on the action with a strong touchdown grab on a pass from Case Keenum to give the Vikings a 21-17 lead.
But Minnesota wasn’t done there. After a Mackensie Alexander interception, the Vikings drove down to the goal line once again. This time, a play action pass from Keenum to tight end David Morgan gave the Vikings a 28-17 lead heading into halftime. It is Morgan’s first career touchdown.
However, one of the most fun moments from the first half came following the Adam Thielen touchdown where the players lined up to play leapfrog, adding another playful celebration to the team’s resume.
Heading into the second half, the Minnesota Vikings had a 28-17 lead over the Washington Redskins and begin the third quarter with possession of the football with a chance to extend their lead.
