Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings 10/24/19
Washington Redskins is warming up its place in the cellar, having just suffered a scoreless loss versus the San Francisco 49ers. The outcome of that game was long decided even before the Redskins stepped into the field. Nevertheless, credit must be given to players who attempted to score touchdowns but were not able to. Case Keenum tried his best at 9/12 and 77 air yards. Adrian Peterson rushed 20 carries at 81 yards but was not able to cross the line. Terry Quinn caught only 2 receptions at 30 yards. It was a very disappointing performance for the Redskins, which managed to squeak in 41 plays and gained 154 yards. This is in stark contrast to what they allowed their opponent: a forced takeaway and yardage gain of 283 yards. The opponent connected 71% of throw attempts, hinting at the minimal defense of the Redskins.
The scoreless game just cemented the Redskin’s status as one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NFL right now. Reforms should be in order regarding their training and tactics so that they can do better next season.

The Vikings tamed the Lions with a high-scoring 42-30 matchup. Kirk Cousins had a Finals-worthy performance, with 24/34 of 337 air yards. He finished with 4 thrown touchdowns.

The Vikings were relentless in their rushing game. They rushed 37 times out of 71 plays. This enabled them to cover a staggering 503 yards. The team made 32 first-downs happen and were only called out for penalty 6 times. Despite their superior position, the Vikings attempted to balance their defense. They allowed 67% of opponent throw attempts. The opponent managed to slip past their defenses and still gained a total of 433 yards with a force takeaway.
The Vikings have improved not only their NFL standing but also their rush-specific tactics. They are not able to cover 160 yards on the ground as average per matchup. They’re also plugging in decent scoring, making them one of the top scorers in the NFL. Assuming that their performance in the upcoming match will be consistent, the Redskins are in for a tough ride.
