Teddy Bridgewater gets emotional on sideline for 1st game back
13 November, 2017, 01:54
Slot receiver Jamison Crowder will return today when Washington hosts the Minnesota Vikings (1 p.m. on November 12) after missing the Redskins' win at Seattle last week with a hamstring injury.
Still, Keenum completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards.
Regardless, the Redskins have not given their fans much to cheer about at home, losing two out of their five games played so far this season.
The part that wasn't a clinic was the back-to-back interceptions by Washington safety D.J.
And with that, the Vikings improved to 7-2 on the season, on a day when their defense was far from flawless.
Harris' incredible catch gave the Redskins an early lead over the Vikings. Thielen led an ensuing celebration that was a good old fashion game of "Leap Frog". Stefon Diggs caught a touchdown from Keenum, raced to the goal post and jumped on it.
Thielen had eight catches for a season-high 166 yards, and the Vikings celebrated his TD by kneeling in a line the end zone while he and Diggs leapfrogged over them. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, costing Minnesota 15 yards. "That came after a tight end by Kyle Rudolph last month at Chicago when the Vikings celebrating by playing, 'Duck Duck, Gray Duck" in the end zone. The second one was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2, leading to a 2-yard run by Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins that cut the defecit to 35-27 with 14:47 left in the game.
