Vikings At Redskins: Washington Gets On The Board

The Washington Redskins have gotten on the scoreboard against the Minnesota Vikings and, in keeping with the theme of the day, it comes as the result of a field goal.

After Blair Walsh kicked his 20th touchback of the year. . .more than the Vikings had in all of 2011, if you're scoring at home. . .the Redskins started at their own 20-yard line. The Redskins matriculated the ball down the field, including having to convert a fourth down to Santana Moss to move the ball inside of the Minnesota 30-yard line. However, the Washington drive bogged down at that spot, and Washington was forced to attempt a field goal.

The Redskins brought in Kai Forbath, recently signed to replace the ineffective Billy Cundiff, and his first attempt as a Redskins came from 50 yards out. Forbath calmly drilled the field goal, and drew the Redskins closer to the Vikings at 9-3.

It's a field goal battle at FedEx Field in Washington, D.C., and the Vikings are currently getting the best of it as they lead 9-3.
