Thursday Night Football: Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings, Open Thread

Thursday Night Football Open Thread.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Redskins (3-5), fighting to stay alive in the NFC East race, travel to Minnesota to face the Vikings (1-7) at the Mall of America Field inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome on Thursday Night Football.

Game Time: 8:25 p.m. ET

TV: NFL Network

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Redskins -1

Will the Redskins be able to pull within one game of first place after starting the season 1-4? Will quarterback Robert Griffin III, who has started to play better this season but still does not look like the same player as last year, be able to continue to improve and get closer to regaining the form he had? How will the Vikings rebound on a short week after a disappointing last second defeat to the Dallas Cowboys? Will either defense be able to stop the opposing team's running game led by All-Pro Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and one of the best young runners in football in Washington's Alfred Morris? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
