Coming off a heartbreaking loss to the Dallas Cowboys that have could ended their four-game losing streak, the Minnesota Vikings (1-7) host the Washington Redskins (3-5) on Thursday Night Football.

Cowboys QB Tony Romo engineered a 90-yard game-winning drive to beat the Vikings 27-23 last weekend, after Dallas WR Dwayne Harris caught a 7-yard touchdown catch with 35 seconds left in the game. Vikings players openly questioned head coach Leslie Frazier's decision to rush three defensive lineman late in game.

"We were putting heat on [Romo] the whole day," said Minnesota DE Brian Robison, who had two sacks against Dallas. "We had (three) sacks today. That's a pretty dang good day and then all of a sudden we get a drive, we're going to rush three guys and we don't get to him. You've got five guys to block three."

The Vikings will start Christian Ponder at quarterback, Ponder having completed 25-of-37 passes for 236 yards, and two touchdowns - one passing and one rushing. But he threw an interception and fumbled in his own end zone when he was sacked by the Cowboys defense, giving up a touchdown.

Washington is coming off a thrilling overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers after FB Darrel Young scored his third touchdown of the day on a 4-yarder to end the game. Washington is looking to gain momentum after a slow start to the season. as they try to catch first-place Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East standings.

QB Robert Griffin III has been inconsistent in his comeback from knee surgery but showed flashes of his old self despite the fact that he did not get a touchdown in last week's game 30-24 victory at FedEx Field. Griffin kept the chains moving after throwing 23-of-32 passes for 291 yards, going 12-of-17 on third down conversions.

"The great quarterbacks are the guys that are consistent on third down," said Washington head coach Mike Shanahan. "Anytime you're over 70 percent on third-down conversions your quarterback is playing extremely well. And that's what you've got to do. You've got to do that consistently."
