Redskins receiver Jamison Crowder returning from injury against Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have won four in a row to claim a two-game cushion atop the NFC North, but that hardly means Case Keenum's job is secure behind center.

In the first quarter, Harris went deep along the sideline for a pass from Kirk Cousins.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (19) carries the ball past Washington Redskins free safety DeAngelo Hall (23) during the first half of an NFL football game in Landover, Md., Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. Sunday, Rudolph will add to that and will be the leading receiver for the Vikings.

But there was plenty more to come; Thielen then orchestrated a full-on leapfrog game. He is now 5-2 in his seven starts this season for the Vikings (7-2). He only has two games with over 250 passing yards this season and he has been intercepted at least once in the Vikings' last three outings.

This was the first loss in the Fuente era when the Hokies had a lead in the fourth quarter. The Hokies will try to bounce back next week against Pittsburgh at Lane Stadium.

In the win, Thielen finished with eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for using field equipment as a prop.

After Theilen's touchdown, the Vikings had a group celebration. So which was better: Duck, Duck, Gray Duck or Leap Frog?

For the Redskins, they will take the lead early but will be non-existent from there. Forbath kicks a 50-yard field goal, while Hopkins' longest field goal will be 45 yards.
