On the first play of Minnesota's drive after the Alfred Morris touchdown, Christian Ponder dropped back to pass, and Adrian Peterson was pushed into Ponder by Washington's Perry Riley. The ball squirted out of Ponder's hand, and into the arms of Lorenzo Alexander. Alexander was brought down at the 6-yard line, and the Redskins were in business.
It didn't take the Redskins long from there, as Robert Griffin III found running back Dorrell Young on the first play from scrimmage for a 6-yard touchdown catch to extend the Redskins' lead to 17-9.
We're at the two-minute warning at FedEx Field, and the Minnesota Vikings need to attempt to answer the Redskins' momentum before the half. As it stands now, Minnesota trails Washington by a score of 17-9.
