Field Marshal Kirk Cousins led, with runner Dalvin Cook as his best ally, the attack of the Minnesota Vikings, who won the Washington Redskins 19-9, in the advance game of Week 8 of the National League of American Football (NFL).
Cook accumulated 171 total yards and made the only touchdown of the game, which defeated Cousins to defeat his former team in his first showdown since leaving the Washington franchise.
Cook, leader of the NFL in total yards, had 23 carries for 98 yards and added five receptions for another 73 for the Vikings (6-2), who reached four consecutive victories and remain second in the Northern Division of the National Conference ( NFC), where the Green Bay Packers are the leaders (6-1).RELATED
Cousins completed 23 of 26 shipments for 285 yards and had no turnovers against the Redskins (1-7), who selected him in 2012 and made him his undisputed holder in 2015.
The quarterback of the Vikings was captured three times in 12 opportunities and left the pin index at 112.3.
While Case Keenum, the quarterback who replaced him in the Redskins attack, was ruined his return to Minnesota, where he was the 2017 season, when he suffered a shock that absent him throughout the second half of the game. Keenum also lost a loose ball during a capture in the first quarter.
Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins threw an interception deep into Minnesota territory, when the Redskins were down by only 7 points, which prevented him from approaching the scoreboard.
Another former Viking star, runner Adrian Peterson, had 14 carries for 76 yards and in the process was placed as the sixth best in the history of the NFL in ground yards, leaving behind Jerome Bettis and LaDainian Tomlinson, both members of the Hall of Fame.
But the Redskins charged with the loss that left them with a losing score of 1-7, including four visitor losses, while the only victory they have also achieved it along the way.
