Fourth Quarter Conclusions: #WASvsMIN

When its leaky defense required mistake-free football, a Redskins offense that looked unstoppable in the first half sputtered out with drive-killing mistakes in a 34-27 loss at Minnesota.

Robert Griffin III was accurate and efficient with three first-half touchdown passes, but a high pass on a first down in the fourth quarter led to a three-and-out.

Pierre Garcon was a beast in the screen game and caught seven passes for 119 yards and a touchdown, but he dropped a couple of high throws.

The Redskins made it to the red zone in the final minute and got off four plays inside the 10-yard line, but they were doomed to the fate they imposed on San Diego last week. A goal line stand ended it.

Kevin William dominated the interior of the offensive line with three sacks. Christian Ponder, a quarterback who lost and regained his job this season, threw two touchdowns. John Carlson, a backup tight end in spot starting duty, was 2 yards short of 100 yards receiving.

Like their last road game, the Redskins paired a dominant first half with a disappointing finish.

Fourth quarter high: Griffin III easily converts a fourth down with a 12-yard run out of bounds.

Fourth quarter low: Santana Moss’ left foot plants out of bounds as the receiver tries to bring in a fourth-down touchdown catch.

Third Quarter Thoughts: #WASvsMIN

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 7, 2013 – 9:59 pm

If you questioned Kyle Shanahan’s play calling in the last road game at Denver, go ahead and give the offensive coordinator his due tonight.

The offense could not be operating better. At the half, the Redskins were a dropped pass away from scoring a touchdown on every possession. Alfred Morris is consistently making the first man miss, racking up 88 yards rushing. Washington is riding him with 17 carries.

Robert Griffin III is playing mistake-free football, unless you count the decision to run and absorb a crunching hit at the 1-yard line too risky. The quarterback has three touchdown passes in the first half.

On a short week with little time to prepare, a simplified game plan has been effective. The Redskins’ receivers deserve props for blocking in the screen game.

Except for a bad interception on his second throw, Christian Ponder looks good. He completed nine straight passes at one point. Adrian Peterson looks like a beast per usual, but Washington’s sustained drives have kept him off the field.

Second quarter high: Pierre Garcon busting loose on a screen and lowering his shoulder into Andrew Endejo, sending the free safety to the turf.

Second quarter low: Cordarrelle Patterson catching a 3-yard touchdown early in the quarter.

Let’s see if Washington can keep up the pace. The Redskins get the ball at the half.

The “Jordan Reed: I should have been higher than a third round draft pick” tour continues.

This time on a Thursday night showing in front of over 60,000 in Minnesota.

Already surpassing greats Chris Cooley and Jerry Smith in franchise rookie tight end categories such as touchdowns and receptions, No. 86 added to his stellar resume with an 11-yard touchdown reception.

Video of the tight end’s touchdown reception, his third of the season:

VIDEO: Garcon Trucking Some Vikings

For a second I thought it was Alfred Morris out wide, but Pierre Garcon’s epic 32-yard reception was something only a handful of NFL receivers can accomplish.

Appearing to get stop after a few yards, Garcon trucked not one but two Vikings en route to his longest reception of the first half.

Someone tell the TV producer to keep use the right analog stick whenever No. 88 gets the ball.

Second Quarter Summary: #WASvsMIN

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 7, 2013 – 9:09 pm

(AP)

This looks like a runner’s duel. Alfred Morris already has 52 yards rushing. Adrian Peterson has 38 yards and an 18-yard touchdown.

Peterson could be a problem, but the Redskins offense is looking effective save for some red zone trouble.

It only took two throws for Christian Ponder to waver. The Vikings quarterback started the game with a 10-yard completion, but lobbed a weak pass that gave Brandon Meriweather ample time for an interception. The Redskins failed to manufacture seven points out of the turover, instead failing from the 1-yard line and taking a short field goal.

Quarter high: Alfred Morris taking advantage of a gaping hole for a 26-yard gain.

Quarter low: Logan Paulsen’s dropped touchdown pass.

GIF: That RGIII-Garcon Connection Works

Read the name on the back it says it all.

On a seven play, 78-yard drive that took nearly four minutes, quarterback Robert Griffin III hit Pierre Garcon for an eight-yard touchdown with a Garcon celebratory “read the name” point to the back of his jersey.

Griffin III was dandy on the drive, hitting four different receivers on for pass attempts.

Here’s a GIF to relieve the first touchdown of the night for the Redskins:

GIF: Meriweather Says Thank You For INT

Well it took a whopping four plays for this opportunistic defense to strike again.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder thought he could just sling the ball into the air and magical things would take place inside the Dome.

Instead, safety Brandon Meriweather jumped up and snatched the easy interception.

Check out a GIF of his interception below:

First Quarter Happenings: #WASvsMIN

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 7, 2013 – 8:10 pm

(AP)

Washington is in uncharted territory tonight, and I don’t mean playing on Thursday night or encountering the shock of genuine Midwestern friendliness.

For the first time this season, the Redskins (3-5) square off against a team with a worse record. The Vikings (1-7) have defined their season thus far with a quarterback carousel. Morale in Washington is rising after a miraculous goal line stand and subsequent overtime win against the Chargers.

If the Redskins are going to be a playoff team in the so far unimpressive NFC East, they need some easy wins. Earning every victory on the last drive takes too much out of a team.

All eyes will be on Adrian Peterson, the seventh-year stud who’s rushing his way onto the Mount Rushmore of backs. But I think a less familiar Viking strikes as much of a threat. Rookie Cordarrelle Patterson dominated the Southeastern Conference in one year at Tennessee. The receiver’s top-end speed has translated to kick returns, where the Redskins struggled early in the season. Patterson returned opening kicks to the house against Pittsburgh and Chicago.

Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder is fighting for his NFL career every week from here on out. He’s back after being benched in favor of Josh Freeman. Ponder has thrown twice as many picks as touchdowns, but passed for 352 yards in Washington last year.

Check back below for a live running summary of the first quarter at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.

VOTE: Which Unit Shines At Minnesota?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 7, 2013 – 5:45 pm

(AP)

To keep Robert Griffin III safe in the pocket, Washington’s offensive line has to neutralize veteran pass rushers Jared Allen and Kevin Williams. The secondary could match up well against Christian Ponder and Minnesota’s receivers.

You pick. Which unit is the key to a victory over the Vikings?
