The back-and-forth at FedEx Field continues.

With the Vikings erasing a 14-0 deficit to lead 20-14 at halftime, Washington has knotted things up with a pair of field goals in the third quarter.

The game is tied at 20 with 15 minutes to play. Minnesota would be leading by a point, if kicker Blair Walsh hadn’t missed his fourth extra point of the year.

With the Packers losing in Tennessee, the Vikings have a prime opportunity to gain some distance over Green Bay in the NFC North. The Lions, at 5-4, are hoping they both lose.
