Over at FedEx Field in Maryland on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins will be meeting up in NFL action.
The Vikings are sitting at 6-2 so far, winning their last four games straight over the Bears, Packers, Ravens and Browns. In that Cleveland game, Minnesota QB Case Keenum put up 288 yards, two scores and one pick.
This year, Keenum has 1610 yards, seven touchdowns and three picks, and Dalvin Cook is tops in Minnesota rushers with 354 yards and two TDs. Adam Theilen has 627 yards with one TD on 48 catches.
Over on the Redskins’ side, they’re coming into this one with a 4-4 record. Washington has wins over the 49ers and Seahawks sandwiched around losses to the Eagles and Cowboys in their last four games. In that Seattle game, Redskins QB Kirk Cousins put up 247 yards on 21 completions.
Cousins has put up 2147 yards with 13 touchdowns and four picks for the Redskins this year, and Chris Thompson is the top rusher on 251 yards and two TDs. Thompson also leads Washington in receiving with 453 yards and three scores from 35 catches.
The Vikings are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 games following an ATS win and 19-7 ATS in the last 26 games following a straight-up win. Minnesota is also 36-15 ATS in their last 51 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a bye week.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are 5-0 ATS in their last five games in November and 8-3 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Washington is also 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.
Let’s look at Minnesota’s winning streak. Though they escaped games against the Bears and Ravens by just one score (three against Chicago and eight versus Baltimore), the Vikings secured a win over Green Bay by 13 and Cleveland by 17. As for the Redskins, they’ve escaped by two (49ers) and three (Seahawks) in their last two wins, and got beaten by a combined 24 points to Philly and Dallas. All things considered, I like the Vikings to cover here.
