Adam Carlson of thevikingage.com provides more Vikings intel on the upcoming contest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins. Redskins vs. Vikings – week 10. Here is part – 2 of the Enemy Intel Report – Week 10
3) How will the Vikings defense try to stop the Redskins rushing attack?
The Vikings won’t worry as much about stopping the run as they will stopping the pass. The team will rely on the tackling of their players in the Tampa 2 to keep the plays in front of them while adding a rush to fill lanes. Expect a big game from RGIII through the air on Thursday, but not as big on the ground.
4) Which Washington Redskins players on offense and defense will the Vikings be concerned about the most?
On offense, it’s all about Robert Griffin III taking advantage of a beat up and inexperienced secondary. Washington boasts some speedy and efficient wide receivers that could make the day really tough on those defensive backs in Minnesota. Defensively, Ryan Kerrigan is a guy that doesn’t get much attention but is having a fantastic season for the Redskins. This year, he has three forced fumbles, 6.5 sacks, and 4 stuffs. If he’s on his game again, he could make life really hard for last year’s NFL MVP, Adrian Peterson.
5) Which Minnesota Vikings player has been the biggest surprise, and which has been the biggest disappointment so far this season?
The biggest surprise this year has been Cordarrelle Patterson on special teams. Although he hasn’t had a real chance to contribute in the passing game yet, he has made his mark while returning for 2 touchdowns and tied an NFL record for longest play in NFL history with his 109 yard return. Meanwhile, the biggest disappointment has to be Desmond Bishop. He was a guy that was brought in to compete for two starting jobs at linebacker this year. As soon as he won a starting nod, he injured his leg and was placed on injured reserve. It’s a very disappointing way for him to end the season.
