Last Meeting

These teams also met Week 10 last year in Maryland and the Redskins won 26-20. Kirk Cousins threw for two touchdowns, and Preston Smith had two sacks and a game-altering interception. Washington got all of its second-half points off the foot of Dustin Hopkins, who hit four field goals, including a 50-yarder. The Redskins shut out Minnesota in the second half, and Smith sacked Sam Bradford (now out for season) in the final seconds. Cousins was 22 of 33 for 262 yards with touchdown passes to Vernon Davis and Jamison Crowder. Robert Kelley ran for 97 yards. Including Sunday’s matchup, the Vikings and Redskins have met seven of the past eight seasons, playing every season since 2010 with the exception of the 2015 season. The Vikings hold a 4-2 edge in the previous six contests.

Why Bet On Minnesota?

The Vikings’ 6-2 start has matched the best start through 8 games under Mike Zimmer. Vikings currently have a four-game winning streak, tied for the third-best streak in the NFL and also the third-longest streak since Zimmer became the head coach in 2014. The Vikings, who had a bye last week, defeated Cleveland 33-16 at London’s Twickenham Stadium in Week 8. Running back Jerick McKinnon had 122 scrimmage yards (72 receiving, 50 rushing) and a touchdown against the Browns. Wide receiver Adam Thielen, who had five catches for 98 yards and a touchdown versus Cleveland, ranks second in the NFC with 627 receiving yards. Despite having key offensive starters miss extended time due to injuries, the Vikings offense ranks 11th in the NFL in total yards per game (358.5) after eight games, a vast improvement from ranking last after eight contests in 2016 (298.8). Defensive end Everson Griffen ranks third in the NFL with 10 sacks and is one of only three players (Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis) to record a sack in each of his team’s first eight games of a season since the individual sack became an official statistic in 1982. The Vikings defense has held opponents to 282.1 yards per game (fourth in the NFL) and 16.9 points per game (third in the NFL). The Vikings defense has fared well against both the run and the pass this season, limiting opponents to 81.4 rushing yards per game (third in the NFL) and 200.8 passing yards per game (seventh in the NFL), and is one of three teams (DEN and CAR) in the NFL to rank in the top 10 in each category.

Why Bet On Washington?

Washington running back Rob Kelly rushed for two touchdowns – including the game-winning score with 59 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter – in the Redskins’ 17-14 come-from-behind victory at Seattle. Cousins led the game-winning drive, completing a 31-yard pass to wide receiver Brian Quick and connecting with wide receiver Josh Doctson on a 38-yard completion to set the Redskins up at the Seattle one-yard line. The Redskins have been fabulous defensively in the first quarter this season, allowing just 16 total points. The Redskins have allowed 57 in second quarters, 53 in third quarters and 68 in fourth quarters. Minnesota has scored 16 total points in all eight of its first quarters. Despite playing at home, the Redskins come in as the Week 10 NFL Lines underdog. Skins running back Chris Thompson has 35 catches, which leads the team; Thompson also leads the Redskins with 453 receiving yards and 251 rushing yards; He has five total touchdowns. Cousins has an 81.2 passer rating on third downs, which is 20.8 points lower than the 102.0 Cousins has posted on all downs combined; Cousins ranks seventh in passer rating on all downs but falls to 18th on third downs. The Skins should get back two key offensive players this week in WR Jamison Crowder and TE Jordan Reed as both have been practicing this week. Crowder sat out last Sunday’s game after going for a career-high 123 yards versus Dallas in Week 8. Left tackle Trent Williams is in doubt, though, after missing the past two games. Guards Brandon Scherff and Shawn Lauvao and center Spencer Long could all return as well.

Latest NFL Lines Trends & Expert Prediction

Vikings are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games. Vikings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week. Redskins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in November. Redskins are 8-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. I’m actually surprised the Vikings are favored by the NFL Lines for Week 10, I think Washington wins outright.
