The Vikings have an early lead over the Washington Redskins, thanks to a Brian Robison strip sack of Rex Grossman early that turned into a 37-yard field goal from Ryan Longwell.

The Vikings' defense has held up very well thus far, and the Redskins have helped us out with an offsides penalty on a 4th-and-4 play that allowed the Vikings to hold on to the football. That was followed up with what can only be classed as an absolute cheap shot on a sliding Christian Ponder by Washington safety Reed Doughty, who will be getting a letter from the league office this week and probably should have been ejected.

The Vikings are currently looking at a 2nd-and-goal from the Redskins' 1-yard line as we start the second quarter of play with Minnesota leading 3-0 in front of. . .well, dozens of fans at FedEx Field. Seriously, there are more people in the Game Thread than there are in the stadium.
