Game Day Notes: Redskins vs Vikings

By Mark Solway | November 2nd, 2014

Here are some game day notes for today’s game between Washington and Minnesota:

RGIII returns.

John Keim and Britt McHenry break down what it means to the Redskins. Incidentally, this is the third time that Griffin is returning from an injury layoff, and he is 0-2 in the other two returns.

Here’s a couple of interesting tidbits from NFL.com’s Kevin Patra

Washington has allowed only five drives of 10-plus plays this season, fewest in NFL. However, opposing teams have thrown 17 TDs and only three INTs against the Redskins with a passer rating of 104.0, 5th highest in NFL. Jim Haslett’s unit has 14 sacks when bringing the blitz this season, most in the NFL.
Meanwhile the Minnesota defense has compiled 15 sacks in the last three games (after getting 10 sacks in the first five) and are tied for second in the NFL with 25 sacks. They are led by “Making the Leap” candidate Everson Griffen (8), third most in the NFL. The Vikings are allowing just 24.3 percent of 20-plus air yard passes to be completed (fourth lowest in the NFL) and are the only team to not allow a completion of 20-plus air yards on third down. However, opponents have an 81.3 completion percentage and 134.1 passer rating in the red zone (both highest in the NFL).

Team Records and Totals:

Washington 3-5; Average Points Allowed 21.4; Road Record: 1-3; Conference record 1-4; Total Net Yards Per Game 391.9 (7th); Passing Yards 289.9 (5th); Rushing Yards 102.4 (19th)
