Vikings WR Adam Thielen continues stellar season in win over Redskins


The Washington Redskins again found a way to not reward their fans at home in another loss at FedEx Field. Recasts with quotes, details.

Time to get familiar with the Redskins wide receiver. That puts him on pace for 100 catches, 1,410 yards and four touchdowns, certainly numbers that would get him an invite to the Pro Bowl and perhaps even an All-Pro nod.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Members of the Minnesota Vikings' offense leapfrogged over each other, then did the same to the Washington Redskins.

In Sunday's win over the Redskins, Adam Thielen caught a touchdown pass in the second quarter that gave the Vikings a 20-17 lead they would maintain the rest of the game.

The part that wasn't a clinic was the back-to-back interceptions by Washington safety D.J. He threw two second-half interceptions. "He's an excitable guy and he needs to understand when's the good plays and bad plays sometimes".

Thielen had eight catches for 166 yards. The Vikings are not holding Keenum back in the passing game.

Have no idea who we're talking about? Kirk Cousins threw for 327 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores, which made for a nice fantasy football line.

Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris was just called up from the practice squad. Upon replay review, officials ruled that Harris came down with possession of the ball in bounds.

"I was surprised myself", Harris said".

After Theilen's touchdown, the Vikings had a group celebration.

Vikings: They played without DE Everson Griffen because of a foot injury.

Keenum has played extremely well for Minnesota during its four-game win streak, and that allows the team to be patient with Bridgewater.

Redskins: Coach Jay Gruden said WR Ryan Grant is in the NFL's concussion protocol. S DeAngelo Hall sprained his right knee late in the second quarter, pressing CB Kendall Fuller to play out of position.
