Poor second quarter dooms Redskins in 38-30 loss to Vikings

Poor second quarter dooms Redskins in 38-30 loss to Vikings

A day after being called up from the practice squad, second-year Redskins receiver Maurice Harris came up with a highlight-reel grab: a diving, one-handed catch for a touchdown on the opening drive.

Keenum finished 21-of-29 passing for 304 yards and four touchdowns, more than offsetting the two turnovers.

Still, the quarterback did enough Sunday to lead the Vikings to a 38-30 win over Washington on Sunday at FedExField. Washington's Kirk Cousins completed over 66 percent of his passes for the fourth straight week in a 17-14 win over Seattle, and hopes a return to FedEx Field can provide a boost as he has thrown for 958 yards and six touchdowns in his last three home games. Keenum looked for most of the game as if there was no way would he give up that job anytime soon, but then he had his shaky moments.

I have the Vikings winning this one 40-26, and improving to 7-2 and maintaining its first place position in the NFC North amidst a matchup with first-place Los Angeles Rams at U.S. Bank Stadium in Week 9.

Wide receivers Adam Thielen and Laquon Treadwell also have good games in this one. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, costing Minnesota 15 yards.

Griffen was the third player since the National Football League began tracking sacks in 1982 to have one in each of his team's first eight games of the season. So which was better: Duck, Duck, Gray Duck or Leap Frog?
