Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (RG3) seemed to be struggling before he went down with a dislocated ankle in Week 2. That doesn’t mean there’s no reason to catch the game on Fox or watch Washington Redskins vs Minnesota Vikings live free online stream today. In fact, RG3’s return makes what would otherwise be a bad game something worth tuning into.
RG3 was initially thought to make his return last week, but his ankle wasn’t quite ready for an actual game. Instead, Colt McCoy got the start and led the Redskins to an improbable 20-17 overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
McCoy played well, completing 25-of-30 passes for 299 yards with one interception. But if RG3 is ready to play, there’s little question he’s going to start. Redskins Coach Jay Gruden made that call Thursday. RG3 has been out since Week 2, when he left the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a dislocated ankle.
The Minnesota Vikings should be an interesting matchup for RG3 as we watch Redskins vs Vikings online free live streaming. Washington had been trying to get RG3 to be more of a pocket passer, but he’ll be going up against a Vikings defense that’s fourth in the league against the pass (212.1 yards/game). Though running back Alfred Morris has 513 yards this season, the Redskins aren’t likely to take advantage of the Vikings’ more-porous rushing defense.
Still without Adrian Peterson, the Vikings will look to pass too — if rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater is up to the task. Last Sunday Bridgewater and the Vikings lost a 10-point lead but came roaring back to beat the Buccaneers 19-13 in overtime. With neither team’s defense playing especially well, the Vikings / Redskins game truly could come down to the play of a struggling rookie QB and a veteran needing to kick off some rust.
