The Washington Redskins got off to a slow start against the Minnesota Vikings, trailing 10-0 early on. A Rex Grossman touchdown pass to Donte Stallworth cut the lead to 10-7 and began a sort of rally by the Redskins to tie up the football game. The Skins defense was able to buckle down after giving up 10 early points and force some punts by the Vikings in the second quarter. Despite a rushing touchdown, Adrian Peterson has been limited to under 40 rushing yards in the half.
Late in the second quarter the Redskins were able to get back on the scoreboard again thanks to a field goal by Graham Gano to tie the game 10-10. Quarterback Rex Grossman has 118 passing yards and a touchdown and has looked much better after an early fumble.
