Commanders vs. Vikings: The Vikings are now 7-1 after they rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Commanders 20-17 on Sunday. With a promising debut, Kirk Cousins returned to Washington for the first time since leaving for Minnesota in 2018. Pressbox statisticians counted 11 separate hits against him yet he still managed to make crucial plays down the stretch.
For the third straight game, Harrison Smith picked off an opposing quarterback and his return of 35 yards to the Washington 12-yard line set up the tying touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to Dalvin Cook and helped swing momentum.
Using a seemingly counterintuitive but ultimately successful brand of situational football Minnesota proved once again that it can come through in the clutch.
Adam Thielen, you deserve a round of applause for surpassing the 500-catch milestone. Only Pro Football Hall of Famers Cris Carter and Randy Moss is better than him in Vikings history.
Congratulations to Head Coach Kevin O’Connell and his family on the arrival of their fourth child on Friday.
To begin, please accept my deepest condolences on the death of Adam Zimmer to your family. After defeating the Commanders, the Vikings are in a strong position to win the NFC North. Now I have faith in the coaching staff and the players to not become “comfortable” with their division lead, since weirder things have happened in this league than teams folding when victory is seemingly “in the bag.”
We’d like to give a shout-out to the staff and players, as they’ve gone undefeated in their previous six games, all of which were decided by one (6-8 last year). The team hasn’t always looked great, but they’ve come through in crucial moments and stuck together when things looked bleakest.
Finally, I propose a new rule that effective immediately, requires a down to be replayed whenever an official makes contact with the field of play. What you describe is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
I share Brandon’s sadness for the loss suffered by the Zimmer family and I’d want to add my own condolences to his.
Commanders vs. Vikings Match Details
Commanders vs. Vikings match details: With four and a half games in the bank, thanks to head-to-head victories, Minnesota enters Week 10 with a commanding lead over Green Bay and Chicago. As a team, I don’t believe they can afford to get complacent for a few reasons. The Vikings have come back from double-digit fourth-quarter deficits against Detroit and Washington to start and extend their winning streak, respectively.
While divisional glory is usually the starting point for most teams, as the season progresses, other objectives, such as making the playoffs as a Wild Card club, may take its place. The Vikings are one of two teams in the NFL with one or fewer losses through the first half of the season; the other is Philadelphia, which is at 8-0 and has a perfect record versus Minnesota.
The only way for the Vikings to guarantee themselves a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the NFC Playoffs is to keep winning and maintaining their current seeding as the No. 2 team.
As an extension of Brandon’s earlier remark, that play was indeed crazy. While Camryn Bynum was sizing up Taylor Heinicke’s deep throw into triple coverage, everyone in the stadium saw the back judge collide with Bynum, knocking down the safety and leading to Washington’s first lead of the game, a 49-yard touchdown early in the third quarter.
