Washington's third-down conversion percentage is only 23.3% (14 of 60), worst in the NFL. The Vikings have allowed opponents to convert 44.7 percent of third downs.

not good.

by my account, we are 26th in the league at stopping 3rd down conversions.

our defense is 7th in the league at yards allowed per game though.

and 6th in points allowed per game.

Id like to see a playaction Ponder roll to the right throw back to Percy who ran a crossing route left. Brees/Colston do this frequenty.

That is mind bogging that we are that bad at stopping on 3rd down yet 7th in yards allowed. Points is more understandable since we seem to tighten up a bit at the redzone.

WASH's new kicker, Kai Forbath of UCLA, went undrafted in 2011, spent a pre-season with the Bucs, and has never played in a regular NFL game.

no pressure, dude.

and... it turns out Forbath didn't kick off in his college games.

now he faces kicking to Percy and leading the kickoffs for a squad that hasn't played with him yet.

go Percy, go.



but then, if we play really well, he won't be kicking off much at all anyway...

Wonder if RG3 will play.

Still tied with Chicago for the NFC North. Another must win game!

I love this season. Lets keep on rollin teams!!! Mr. Green


Actually we are in sole posession of first place. The Bears have a loss in the division (to the Packers) and we haven't lost any division games, so I'm pretty sure that makes us the division leaders.


Yeah, this is true.

But hell, I don't want to be tied with the opposition. I wanna see us crush em'.

So with that, lets take a 2 game lead on da burrrrrrrsssss. Laughing

Go Vikings!

We don't have a one game lead right now, we are tied but currently hold the tie breaker. If we win today, we will hold a half game lead. (I think)

The Seahawks are the same way. They are the #1 defense, but I believe they are 20th for 3rd down conversion percentage against.

Redskins are facing a HEFTY fine from the NFL for handing of RG3 injury when they said last week he was "shaken up." NFL want teams to immediately acknowledge a head injury to prevent concussed players from getting pushed back on field.

Not that odd. We only give up short throws and runs. The other team, if they're methodical, will convert a few 3rd downs, but they won't generally won't get a lot of bulk yardage, because we don't give up many (if any) big plays.

When I'm watching the Vikes, it seems like the D is in a 3rd down a lot during drives. They'll give up a few, but maybe only 20 or 30 yards in total before they make a stop.
