The Minnesota Vikings will head out on the road for the third time this season.

The Minnesota Vikings will visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday, looking to extend their record on the season to 5-1. They'll have to do so on the road, though, where they've notched only one of their four victories on the season. Up in the air for Washington is the status of star quarterback Robert Griffin III, who left last week's game with a concussion and whose status for this week's game is unknown. The game will kick off at 3:25 p.m. CT on FOX.

Across the NFC North, two of Minnesota's rivals will be facing crucial early season games. The Detroit Lions, who have skidded to a 1-3 record, are coming off a bye week and will head to face the Philadelphia Eagles. With Minnesota and the Chicago Bears looking dominant early in the season, the Lions likely can't afford to fall to 1-4 on the season. That game is a noon CT start on FOX.

The Green Bay Packers, meanwhile, will be looking to put last week's loss to the Indianapolis Colts behind them when they visit the Houston Texans on Sunday night. That, though, is a task easier said than done, as Houston is currently undefeated and looks like one of the best teams in the NFL. That game will begin at 7:20 p.m. CT on NBC.

The Bears, owners of a 4-1 record themselves, are off this week. For a full NFL scoreboard, visit SI.com.
