Everson Griffen a surprise inactive for Vikings vs. Redskins

Slot receiver Jamison Crowder will return today when Washington hosts the Minnesota Vikings (1 p.m. on November 12) after missing the Redskins' win at Seattle last week with a hamstring injury. Going into Sunday, Rudolph has just 271 receiving yards and three touchdowns but will have a solid game.

In five of the Redskins' seven games this season, the leading receiver for the game has come from the tight end position. Last season, he caught only eight passes for 66 yards. Following Thielen's lead, they played leap frog in the end zone. The call was reversed, resulting in a 36-yard touchdown catch that you'll see on highlight reels for a while.

The Vikings looked to be in great shape with a 35-17 lead before Keenum threw balls that were picked off in the third quarter and early in the fourth by Swearinger. Rob Kelley found the end zone twice versus the Seahawks, but his 37 yards rushing on 22 carries over the last two weeks hardly instills confidence in the running game.

ABOUT THE REDSKINS (4-4): Washington's pass catchers are riddled with injuries, with tight end Jordan Reed and wideout Jamison Crowder nursing ailing hamstrings.

Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct
Jerry Moore said , "he knows. that the allegations against Roy Moore are not true, not true at all", Savidge reported . The allegations against Moore - which he has denied - have prompted other Republicans to weigh in.

Special teams will take the reigns in the second half, as kickers Kai Forbath - of the Vikings - and Dustin Hopkins - of the Redskins - both kick four field goals apiece.

Just as it did in Week 8, the Vikings hold the Redskins to under 10 points.

Time to add a new challenger to the list: the Minnesota Leapfrog.
