Vikings lead Redskins 9-3 in field goal battle

The Vikings are doing what they do, Robert Griffin III isn’t, and Blair Walsh leads Kai Forbath 9-3.

After suffering a concussion last week, Griffin has thrown an interception and has only rushed once. But he just led the Redskins on a 13-play drive that resulted in Forbath’s first field goal. He’s taken a few shots, but hasn’t pulled up, as he didn’t slide feet first when he was running.

On the other side, the Vikings continue to play the kind of understated but effective football which has them 4-1.

Adrian Peterson has 47 yards on eight carries, but just limped off the field. Every hit he takes today will be dissected, since he’s returning to the spot of last December’s knee injury.

    Might want to rething that comment there Darin Gantt. Redskins made adjustments and the Vikings can’t stop Griffin

    I wasn’t actually counting, but I’m pretty sure Griffin only dove once that game, to get the ball in the end zone. Every other carry by him ended either in a slide or out of bounds.

    I think the conclusion is that DG is just not a fan of RG. Or the Redskins. Again, I haven’t really been counting, but I have never seen him say one positive thing about Washington in any of his articles.
