The 5-9 Washington Redskins look to build upon last week's win win over the division rival NY Giants on Sunday, when they host the struggling 2-12 Minnesota Vikings at FedEx Field. The Vikings fell 42-20 to New Orleans last week, their sixth straight defeat.
Rex Grossman and the passing game could have a big day, as the Minnesota secondary allows 271.9 yards through the air per contest and has zero interceptions in the last nine games.
The Vikings will attempt to rely on a not-fully-healthy-yet Adrian Peterson to take down Washington. Peterson had 60 yards on 10 carries against the Saints, and is just 68 yards shy of his sixth straight 1,000 yard season. The Vikings running back had missed the three previous weeks with an ankle sprain.
