The Minnesota Vikings will host the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football and there’s a solid chance the Vikings’ good vibes will continue.

The Minnesota Vikings are rolling as they head into their Week 8 matchup against the Washington Redskins.

After looking like they were on the verge of implosion following a loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 4, the Vikings have rattled off three straight victories and they will look to extend that streak on Thursday night when they host a lowly Washington team.

While many fans will be excited for the return of Minneapolis Miracle hero, Case Keenum, things haven’t gone so well for the former Vikings quarterback and his current team this season.

The Redskins enter Thursday’s game with a record of 1-6 and that win came over the tanking, winless Miami Dolphins. With head coach Jay Gruden already a casualty, things don’t appear to be getting better any time soon for Washington.

With both teams heading in completely different directions, it appears that the NFL has picked another gem for Thursday Night Football.

That being said, Vikings fans can find plenty to watch for during the game and there are several things that people should expect to happen that will help give Minnesota their fourth straight victory.
