Stats, notes, trends, and TV info for the Redskins vs Vikings game.

So, the number 1 (Robert Griffin III) and 2 (Christian Ponder) ranked Quarterbacks in completion percentage come into week six with just three interceptions between the two of them. If history of sports tells us anything, one of them will have a miserable day. The Redskins shocked even me holding down Roddy White and Julio Jones last week, but the Vikings LOVE passes in the middle of the fiedl with Harvin and Rudolph.
