My guess is this will be the storyline heading into the game, rather than our own play.

Another game I want to see a solid win at. RG3 is definitely a threat if he plays, but I still think this should be another solid win.

RGIII being unable to play really favors MN against Washington. If RGIII can play, it might be a more challenging game.

The Redskins have a strong running game and its something they must be prepared to defense. Alfred Morris looks legit behind shanny's ZBS.

The Redskins have a pretty bad secondary on paper, hopefully MN can expose it.

Unfortunately, I can totally see the media latching on to this exactly. Confused

Regardless, I think we have to treat the game with the same severity whether RGIII is in or Kirk Cousins is in. The difference between 5-1 and 4-2 is monumental at this stage of the season, given the difficulty of this division. The NFC North is perhaps the toughest division in football.

'

I agree. A 2-3 team in our division will make most of the headlines, then the Bear's defense, and then we'll get the final score of the game with no highlights.

Screw it, lets just win the Superbowl this year and get no highlights at all the entire year. Laughing

If RG3 doesn't play the Vikings win this by 3 scores.

Even if RG3 doesn't play, we'll need to play well against Alfred Morris.

Not the guy I expected to be running the ball for Washington. I figured that job was Roy Helu's. Hopefully we can stop him.

(At the same time, apparently the Redskins have the best RB ever in Ryan Grant according a GB fan a few years ago lmfao)

If one hasn't figured it out yet, this Viking season is going EXACTLY the way ownership, the GM and the coaching staff wanted it to go. Let the media speak and write lots about RGIII, Peyton Manning, Tebow, and the flamboyant Cowboys.

As long as this team plays solid defense, quality offense, and great special teams, the Vikes are going to win waaaaay more games than predicted.

We, as Viking fans, can do more than cross our fingers for a win. Even this week, the skins are without Orakpo, and I suspect Adrian is more than eager to lift his leg on "the-scene-of-the-crime" so, for a Redskins d that's been getting beat up, its going to be a great chess match.

I'll post a prediction later in the week.

Hopefully RG3 doesn't play. We have trouble containing QBs. I don't want to imagine what RG3 would do.

This another one that we should walk away from with the W. They ranked 31st or something like that on defense and have shown very poor in pass coverage. Without RG3 their passing game takes a hit and I'm not worried about their running game. Vikes just have to go out an execute.

I want to see Simpson get on track this week. I know he was injured today, but I think he needs to be more involved in the offense moving forward.

Vikes are going to lose big.

I'm curious to see how much discussion there is during the week about the last time Ponder and Peterson played at Washington.

Not much? What is left to say?
