Vikings leap back into top-10 of USA TODAY power rankings

"This time around we just want to show that we're a different team", said Diggs, who had four catches for 78 yards. Gruden said tight end Jordan Reed is day to day after missing the past two games with a hamstring injury. RB Rob Kelley left with an ankle injury in the first quarter. Bridgewater was in tears during the national anthem, but he didn't see the field during a victory that showed why Case Keenum - victor of five of his seven starts - has both a strong claim to the starting job and a chance to lose it. But he adds that if players are struggling with success he needs to "do a better job of making sure they don't get a big head".

"We played like trash in the secondary, we really did", Norman said. "Hopefully, that's a learning experience for us as well".

Early in the second quarter, Thielen caught a short pass from Vikings quarterback Case Keenum and proceeded to take it down the field for a gain of 38 yards. Case Keenum finished with 304 yards passing, four touchdowns and two interceptions. "I wish the two throws he had in the second half he would have not made".

Case Keenum was having a almost flawless day before throwing interceptions on back-to-back drives that helped the Redskins inch back into the game. That drive would end with a fourth-down stop after Brian Robison - starting in place of injured Everson Griffen - batted down a Kirk Cousins pass.

Mixing the good with the bad, Keenum was picked off on consecutive throws by D.J. Swearinger. "At times, it felt like we were doing everything we wanted to do offensively, but then missed opportunities - and we can go through them - just led to not enough points to be able to outscore the Vikings".

"Sometimes plans change, but we'll see how it goes". "I mean, there's a couple plays we can go through that could easily be 4-for-4 down there".

The governors at the airport were Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi). Sam Egwu, commended the President for the recent decision to pay former Biafra Police officers their pensions.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater didn't get on the field during Sunday's win, but he was in uniform and on the bench during a regular season game a little more than 14 months after the major knee injury that cost him the 2016 season and raised doubts about his ability to play again. Teams that score touchdowns win'. Washington ended the day with 394 yards, the most any team has posted against the Vikings this season.

"Those games come out of nowhere and just swipe you in the face", Norman said.

"Each week we're playing very good football teams", Gruden said. "This week, we had to play the game that needed to be played, which was going to be: we've got to move the ball quickly, we have to be efficient on all of our possessions, we've got to score".

The Vikings' gumption might be their greatest constant, in a season with more unrest than their record would suggest.
