The Minnesota Vikings (5-4) were a perfect 3-for-3 in the red zone against the Washington Redskins (5-3-1) on Sunday. They even found pay dirt more often (3 to 2), yet, the good showing in the red zone wasn’t enough to earn a win in the nation’s capital. A 26-20 defeat to the Redskins dropped the Vikings for their fourth consecutive loss.
Sam Bradford was an efficient 31-of-40 for 307 yards and two touchdowns. His lone interception with 5:44 to play, however, was a major blow as the Vikings were driving and only trailing 23-20.
