What did we learn about the Minnesota Vikings from their performance on Thursday night that resulted in a win over the Washington Redskins?
Heading into Thursday night’s game, the Minnesota Vikings were a heavy favorite over the Washington Redskins. Almost no one gave the Redskins a chance and most figured the Vikings would just cruise to their fourth-straight victory.
To the surprise of many, however, Washington gave Minnesota a pretty good fight on Thursday. There was only one touchdown scored during the entire contest, but luckily it was by the Vikings who were ultimately able to come out with a win.
Compared to the offensive spectacle that Minnesota put on during their three previous games, Thursday’s game was easily the least exciting of their last four matchups. But the Vikings win this week just proved that they are capable of coming out on top in a variety of ways.
With the victory over Case Keenum and the Redskins on Thursday, Minnesota is now sitting with a 6-2 record for the first time since 2017 when they made it all the way to the NFC Championship.
Even though the game wasn’t full of many memorable moments, what are some of the biggest takeaways from the Vikings’ win over Washington this week?
