Redskins at Vikings Week 8: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

Redskins at Vikings Week 8: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has had Thursday's date circled on his calendar for a long time.

Cousins will face the Redskins for the first time on Thursday since leaving the franchise that drafted him. In 2018, the Redskins allowed him to walk in free agency after two straight seasons playing under the franchise tag.

It's no secret that Washington has struggled to find stability at the quarterback position since Cousins left town. Since his departure, the Redskins have started five different signal-callers (played six) in 23 games, and have a cumulative record of 8-15. 

While the Cousins storyline will grab many headlines, Redskins quarterback Case Keenum may feel that he has something to prove, too. Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game in 2017, but Minnesota signed Cousins the following offseason, allowing Keenum to walk. He signed with the Broncos, and was traded to Washington earlier this year after one season with Denver. 

Thursday marks Keenum's return to Minnesota. The last pass he threw in U.S. Bank Stadium miraculously landed in the arms of Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, connecting on a 61-yard touchdown pass as time expired to send the Vikings to the NFC Championship game.

Redskins running back Adrian Peterson has also been looking forward to Thursday's clash. It's not his first time back in Minnesota, as he returned in 2017 when playing with the Saints, but he's eager to play against the franchise he spent a decade with and became one of the best running backs in NFL history. 

The all-time series is tied 13-13, but the Vikings have won three of the last four contests between the two. Here's everything you need to know.

Derrius Guice out for Week 15 vs. Eagles as he awaits MRI results

Derrius Guice out for Week 15 vs. Eagles as he awaits MRI results

The injuries just keep coming for Derrius Guice.

The second-year running back will miss the Redskins Week 15 contest against Philadelphia after suffering a left knee injury against Green Bay, interim head coach Bill Callahan announced on Monday. The injury is on the same knee that Guice tore his ACL in just a year ago that caused him to miss the entire 2018 season.

The severity of the injury is still unclear. Guice underwent an MRI on his knee earlier on Monday. The team is still waiting for the results.

Guice missed eight weeks earlier this season after tearing the meniscus in his right knee during the Redskins Week 1 loss in Philadelphia. He was placed on injured reserve and returned in Week 11.

Entering Sunday's contest, Guice was coming off the best game of his young career. In Week 13, the second-year veteran ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries in the Redskins' victory over Carolina.

Guice seemed on his way to another big game in Green Bay before getting hurt. He finished with 42 yards on just five carries, including a 23-yard run, the play he suffered the injury on.

The LSU product has shown flashes of how good he can be, but injuries keep occurring for Guice. He's played in five NFL games in his two-year career and been forced to leave the game early in three of those.

Whether the injuries are just a series of bad luck or not, the Redskins need Guice to stay healthy.

    2020 NFL Mock Draft 7.0: College football's elite well represented

    2020 NFL Mock Draft 7.0: College football's elite well represented

    The College Football Playoff committee announced the four schools selected for this playoff, and each program is full of NFL talent.

    So it's not a shock to anyone that in our latest mock draft, LSU, Clemson, Ohio State and Oklahoma all have multiple players projected to go in the first round.

    <<CLICK HERE FOR 2020 NFL MOCK DRAFT 7.0>>

    LSU, the No. 1 seed in the playoff, also has on its roster the likely Heisman Trophy winner and consensus No. 1 overall pick in quarterback Joe Burrow. The Tigers have multiple players in their secondary expected to go in the first round, such as safety Grant Delpit and cornerback Kristian Fulton. Where will they end up?

    While Burrow may be the consensus top pick, Ohio State has whom many consider to be the best player in the draft in edge rusher Chase Young. Could he be an option for the Redskins at No. 3, where they would select if the season ended today, or will he be off the draft board by then? 

    The Buckeyes defense is a lot more than just Young. Cornerback Jeffrey Okudah is widely considered the top cornerback in this year's class, and safety Jordan Fuller would likely be a first-round pick in past years.

    Clemson's offense deserves a lot of credit, but perhaps their best NFL prospect comes from the defensive side of the ball in linebacker Isaiah Simmons. He has the ability to go after the quarterback, but also make plays in coverage and is all over the field.

    A little undersized, Simmons will be an impact player for any team right away. Where does he land?

    <<CLICK HERE FOR 2020 NFL MOCK DRAFT 7.0>>

    Oklahoma has had the NFL's No. 1 overall pick the past two seasons in quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. While Jalen Hurts has had a spectacular season, he's not the prospect either one of those signal-callers was.

    However, the Sooners do arguably have the best wide receiver in the draft in CeeDee Lamb. In a deep wide receiver class, can Lamb jump over Alabama's Jerry Jeudy or Clemson's Tee Higgins to be the first receiver selected?

    The 2019 College Football Playoff will be without Alabama for the first time in history. Although the Crimson Tide won't compete for a National Championship, the amount of NFL talent they have on their roster is impossible to ignore.

    In our latest Mock Draft, the Crimson Tide have nine (!!) first-round selections, by far the most of any school. 

    A lot can change between now and April, but college football's elite programs are expected to dominate the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
