VIKINGS VS REDSKINS
Venue: U.S. Bank Stadium | Start: 11:20am AEDT
Kirk Cousins gets a reunion with the Washington Redskins but there is a chance former Minnesota Vikings All-Pro running back won’t get that chance on the other side Thursday night. Peterson is dealing with an ankle issue and will be a game-time decision at best. Cousins is riding high after another strong showing last week, but the availability of wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is uncertain. Head coach Mike Zimmer said Theilen does have a chance to play, but the Vikings on a short week against a one-win opponent might not run the risk of playing him. Thielen has 27 receptions for 391 yards and six scores in seven games this season. The Vikings showed a few cracks in what had been a zipped up defense and allowed 30 points to the Detroit Lions last week. But minus a running game and with the offensive line being a weakness, Washington doesn’t have the horses to keep pace with the Vikings.
