Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris was just called up from the practice squad.

Washington dipped to 4-5 with the home loss. It will feel like a big game, but the Vikings won't be required to win it. He threw two second-half interceptions.

One of the few bright spots in the contest was the play of safety D.J. Swearinger.

Rose's 55-yard field goal made it 38-30 with 1:14 left, but his onside kick attempt went out of bounds and Minnesota took over. This was an important game for both teams as they hoped to make a run during the second half of the season toward the playoffs. Kyle Rudolph caught a touchdown pass, and the offense celebrated with a game of "Duck, Duck Gray Duck" in the end zone.
