The Minnesota Vikings are currently fighting tooth and nail to get their second win of the season against the Washington Redskins and seem as if they’re going to be close to getting that as they have the lead late in the fourth quarter, 34-27.
Star running back Adrian Peterson has been pretty good in this one, as usual, as he’s carried the ball 20 times for 75 yards and has added two touchdowns to the effort.
