RGIII, Redskins Look To Rally On Short Week Visiting Minnesota Thursday

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/4/2014 5:12:24 AM

Robert Griffin III wasn’t perfect in the Washington Redskins’ 30-24 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers. However, he and his teammates saved their best for last and came through with a crucial win with their backs against the wall. RGIII threw for 291 yards, little used Darrel Young had three touchdowns on five touches, and the Washington defense came up with a huge stop at the goal line to hold the Chargers to a field goal and force overtime, where they eventually won the online sports betting contest. The Redskins opened last year with three wins in their first nine games and then rallied to finish 10-6 and win the NFC East. Now they will look to force a similar comeback again this year, with a short week visiting the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday.

NFL Sports Betting Line: Washington – 2

Minnesota has lost four-straight to bury itself at the bottom of the NFC North, and is tied with the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers at a minus-66 point differential for the season. The Vikings did however give the Dallas Cowboys a tough challenge in an eventual 27-23 loss last week, and Washington can’t afford to underestimate what they bring.

RGIII didn’t have a touchdown in the win over San Diego. Alfred Morris had one, rushing for 121 yards on 25 carries. The Redskins improved to 10-1 in games where Morris gets 20 or more carries, although they handed the bulk of the goal line touches to the fullback Young, who had three touchdowns on five carries. Perhaps most impressive was the way the defense was able to step up and make a stand at their own goal line, where they kept the Chargers out of the end zone on three-straight tries from inside their own one. San Diego settled for the game-tying field goal, the Redskins got the ball first, and RGIII marched them down the field to set up the game-winning score from Young.

Minnesota appeared primed for an upset when they led by three points with under a minute to go in the fourth quarter, but Tony Romo hit Dwayne Harris in the end zone with 35 seconds left and the Cowboys held on for the win. The Vikings’ defense was torched for 350 total yards, 314 of which were through the air. The offense more than held its own with 393 total yards, but Christian Ponder had two key turnovers and that played a big role in coming out on the wrong side. Minnesota fans had to love seeing Adrian Peterson run for 140 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries, and he will need another big online betting performance again this week.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Vikings have shown signs of their potential, but an inconsistent pass defense and turnover prone offense has held them back. Washington proved last year that it was capable of turning things around and making the playoffs following a slow start, so look for RGIII and company to rally together this week and build on the momentum from a big win over the Chargers. The Redskins won’t look too far ahead, but a win over Minnesota will put them just one game back of Dallas for the NFC East lead.
