3 Stats that Stood Out: Vikings at Redskins

The Vikings dropped their fourth game in a row and third straight on the road via a 26-20 decision at Washington.

Here are three stats that stood out:

3:37 time of possession for the Vikings in the third quarter

Minnesota wanted to build on the momentum it seized with 20 straight points in the final five-plus minutes of the first half, but couldn't wrest the ball away from Washington. The Vikings ran just four plays and netted 13 yards. The Redskins, meanwhile, put together drives of 12 and 11 plays that both ended with field goals and allowed Washington to tie the game heading into the fourth quarter.

2.2 yards per carry by the Vikings

Minnesota netted 47 rushing yards on 21 carries against a Washington defense that entered Week 10 allowing opponents 123.8 yards per game and 4.9 per rush attempt.

Eight of the 21 runs by the Vikings resulted in no gain or losses, totaling minus-12 yards.

13 catches by Stefon Diggs

Diggs became the first player in NFL history to record 13 or more receptions in consecutive weeks. He caught 13 passes on 15 targets and totaled 164 yards.

The Maryland native's second catch of the day was good for 36 yards and kick-started the Vikings first scoring drive in the second quarter.
