The Washington Redskins expected to defeat the two-win Minnesota Vikings Saturday, mainly by taking advantage of a Minnesota defense that ranked 30th against the pass. The Redskins were able to exploit the Vikings secondary, but unfortunately Washington fell 33-26 to Minnesota.
Despite the loss, Redskins wide receiver Jabar Gaffney had another solid day, catching six passes for 77 yards, including a spectacular one-handed touchdown grab. Gaffney set a career high in receiving yardage with the 77 yard output, and tied his career high in touchdown receptions.
For the season, the Washington wide receiver has now caught 64 balls for 919 yards and five touchdowns. His previous career yardage high was 875 yards, achieved with Denver a year ago.
