MINNEAPOLIS — The Washington Redskins’ defense didn’t cause a turnover, didn’t stop the Vikings when needed and couldn’t protect a lead. In other words, it was the opposite performance from their outing six days earlier.
Last Monday against the Cowboys, they slowed a potent attack, allowed the offense to find its rhythm and performed well in clutch moments. Sunday, in a 29-26 loss to Minnesota, the Redskins failed defensively. They allowed big plays, were fortunate some other open receivers downfield were overthrown and couldn’t slow rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
