Childress gets schooled by Gibbs
Coming into this game the Vikes had all the help they need with the Eagles knocking off the Saints earlier in the day. All the Vikes had do is win and they would be in the playoffs. It was obvious from the 1st drive that the Vikes were not ready whatsoever in this game. All night the Skins were one step ahead of the Vikes in the 1st half at least. Tavaris Jackson and the offense could not do anything with the ball when they had it.The Vikes made so many mistakes they could not come back from the 25 point deficit that they created for themselves entering half time. With a feat like that to comeback from meant one thing that the offense had to rely on a subpar passing game.
T-Jack was nor able stay consistent in this game. He had 220 yards passing on 25-41 with 1 passing TD late in the 3rd quarter and 2 INT. He also lead the team in rushing with 44 yards on 8 carries and 2 TDs. The Vikes could not run the ball the way they wanted to AD only had 9 carries for 28 yards in the game. The Skins defense was able to make the BIG play when it was needed it started with the 1st pass of the game with an INT thrown by T-Jack.
The Redskins offense lead by Todd Collins was running great on all area. The Vikes could nor stop the pass as usual. They passed for about 250 yards.The Sins pass consistency opened up the running game.The Skins could nor really run the ball til the 4th quarter. Then Clinton Portis was finding so nice holes to run through. Giving him76 yards rushing.This was a LONG game from a die hard Viking fan. I live and die by the Purple.
The team in general was outplayed and out coached by the Redskins.The game is over and we will step on foot in front of another come tomorrow.
We can still make the playoffs. Here is what NEEDS to happen.
Vike win in Denver
Washington loss against Dallas.
