Asiata also ran in the two-point conversion
#1
Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Asiatas third touchdown of the game led the Minnesota Vikings to a 29-26 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. Asiata finished the game with just 26 yards on 10 carries and also converted a two-point attempt. Teddy Bridgewater went 26-for-42 for 268 yards with a touchdown for the Vikings (4-5), who head into their bye week having won two straight games. It was a great team victory today and Im really proud of the ways the guys fought, said Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer. I feel like our team really grew up today in a lot of ways. We went down a couple of times, and kept fighting and fighting and it paid off. Robert Griffin III returned to play for the first time since Week 2 and was 18-for-28 for 251 yards with one touchdown and an interception for the Redskins (3-6), who had won their previous two games. I was not good enough to win and thats all that matters, said Griffin. We lost the game. Guys fought really hard. I have to play better. Washington had gone on top on Alfred Morris second score of the game with just over nine minutes to play, but Minnesota answered to again take the lead. Facing a 3rd-and-10, Bridgewater and Jarius Wright got together for a 21-yard connection to the Washington 36. Bridgewater converted another third down with a completion to Greg Jennings for a 1st-and-goal at the 4, and Asiata punched it in three plays later. Asiata also ran in the two-point conversion for a 29-26 lead with 3:27 to play. Washingtons bid to either tie the game or go ahead fell short as Griffins pass on 4th-and-6 was incomplete and Washington was able to kill off most of the remainder of the clock. Griffin had been out with a dislocated ankle, but we was able to show off his athleticism on Washingtons first drive. Facing a 3rd-and-7, Griffin escaped two potential sackers before hitting Roy Helu for a short pass that turned into a 24-yard gain. Kai Forbath made a 36- yard field goal to polish off the 13-play, 62-yard drive and give the Redskins a 3-0 lead with just over six minutes to play in the first. Overall I think Robert came in and competed, said Washington head coach Jay Gruden. I think he gave us a good chance to win. Minnesotas next touch saw Bridgewater miss a wide open Cordarrelle Patterson on a deep pass and the team eventually had to punt. It was all Morris on Washingtons next possession as his first three carries went for 27 yards down to the Minnesota 19. Griffins next two passes fell incomplete, but the team got a fresh set of downs thanks to an illegal contact penalty. The next snap saw Morris take a handoff around the right tackle and in on a 14-yard score for a 10-0 lead early in the second. The next several drives all ended in punts and the Vikings failed on a 4th- and-2 at the Washington 39 late in the half. However, the Vikings defense came up with a big play as Captain Munnerlyn picked off Griffin to get the ball back for his team near midfield. The first play of the ensuing drive saw Bridgewater and Jennings get together for 22 yards down to the Washington 24. Two plays later, Bridgewater found Chase Ford alone in the end zone for a 20-yard score to make it a 10-7 game going into the break. Minnesota went on top on its first touch of the second half as it started with the ball near midfield and a 15-yard catch by Jerick McKinnon coupled with a roughing the passer call on Washington got the ball down to the 25. After McKinnon had runs of 15 and nine yards, Asiata punched it in from a yard out for a 14-10 lead just over four minutes into the third. The Redskins came right back, though, to take the lead. Griffin converted a 3rd-and-4 with a 17-yard pass to Jordan Reed. Facing another third down, Griffins run fell short, but an unnecessary roughness call on Harrison Smith gave Washington a fresh set of downs and the ball at the Minnesota 13. The next snap saw Griffin hit DeSean Jackson in the end zone for a 17-14 lead. Washington tacked on to its lead on its next touch, as Forbath hit a 26-yard field goal to cap a nine-play, 43-yard drive for a 20-14 lead with under two minutes to play in the third. Minnesota came right back as the team moved 76 yards over 10 plays, with Asiata finishing off the drive on a 7-yard run for a 21-20 lead just two minutes into the fourth quarter. Griffin hit Jackson down the right sideline for 56 yards to help set up Morris 2-yard score with 9:01 to play. The two-point conversion, though, failed and it was a 26-21 contest.

A better question yet may be this: How many times has the same player been involved in both? Morneau hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and helped the Colorado Rockies turn the third triple play in team history as they beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 on Sunday.The Philadelphia Flyers and Columbus Blue Jackets hooked up to make a deal involving veteran wingers, both of whom have size and can score. Numbers Game looks into the trade that sends Scott Hartnell to Columbus for R.J. Umberger and a pick. The Blue Jackets Get: LW Scott Hartnell. Hartnell, 32, is coming off a season in which he scored 20 goals for the seventh time in his career and his 52 points represented the third-highest total of his career. Since joining the Flyers in 2007, hes one of eight players with at least 100 goals and 500 penalty minutes. While Hartnell does take more than his share of penalties, hes an aggravating player to play against, doesnt hesitate to go to the other teams net and has a tendency to fall, which means he also draws a lot of penalties. So long as hes healthy, Hartnell gets involved in the play. Despite his style of play, Hartnell is durable. Hes missed 23 games in seven seasons with the Flyers, including 16 games with a broken foot in 2013. Part of the reason that Hartnell has been so effective is that he has been riding shotgun alongside Claude Giroux for a good portion of the last handful of seasons. While Hartnell isnt necessarily the one driving play on that line, hes been a very good complement to Giroux and Jakub Voracek, most recently, as that trio has generated better possession numbers together than when they were apart. In Columbus, that ability to play with top talent, could give Hartnell a legitimate chance to spend time on the wing with Ryan Johansen on the Blue Jackets first line, though Boone Jenner and Nathan Horton can make some claims to those wing spots as well. Where this deal could become an issue for Columbus is that Hartnell is signed through 2019, thats five more seasons, at a cap hit of $4.75-million. Hartnell isnt the fleetest afoot already, so as he gets into his mid-thirties, that is only going to be more of an issue in a game that is getting ever faster. But, if Hartnell could fill a top six role for the next couple seasons, and a third or fourth line spot for a couple more, then maybe the last year could be tolerable when compared to what the Blue Jackets felt they could be getting out of Umberger going forward. The Flyers Get: LW R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick. Umberger is a 32-year-old who can play all three forward spots and is a five-time 20-goal scorer who has hit for 50 points or more three times in his career. This past season, Umbergers role was reduced, his 16:53 average time on ice reprresenting his lowest since 2006-2007, when he was playing for Philadelphia.dddddddddddd. While Umberger doesnt stir things up the way Hartnell does, hes still a physical player, using his 6-foot-2, 220-pound frame to his advantage and Umberger is a stronger skater. The trouble for Umberger is that hes been getting worse as a possession player. He had some okay years mixed with some bad years earlier in his career, but Umberger has been thumped in possession terms over the past three seasons and virtually every one of his teammates has fared better without Umberger on the ice. That doesnt mean Umberger cant play. It does mean he was likely playing too big a role on a Columbus team that, until 2013-2014, has been on the wrong side of the scoreboard all too often. Where does Umberger fit in Philadelphia? Well, his flexibility does help in this respect. While Umberger isnt necessarily a natural choice to play with Giroux and Voracek, playing alongside Sean Couturier and Matt Read could be a possibility. Umberger has also played enough centre that he could fit into that spot if the Flyers juggle some pieces around when composing their lines. If Umberger isnt going to play on the Flyers top line, thats a plum opening. If it is going to come from within, Wayne Simmonds, Brayden Schenn or Vincent Lecavalier could get that opportunity. Umberger is signed for three more seasons, at a cap hit of $4.6-million per season, so he doesnt provide much cap relief, aside from the fact that his deal runs a couple of years less than Hartnells. A fourth-round pick doesnt offer huge value, but of the 600 picks in the 91-120 range made between 1990 and 2009, just over 4% became top-six forwards, top-four defencemen or starting goaltenders, while just under 20% have played (or are most likely to play) 100 NHL games. Immediately, the Blue Jackets appear to be the better team for making this deal. Not that Hartnell holds a monumental advantage over Umberger, but hes been more productive and has fared positively no matter who he plays with. Umberger had requested a move out of Columbus, not appreciating his declining role, and he should have a chance to play a top nine role in an organization that he played with for the first three seasons of his NHL career but, in a vacuum, this deal makes the Flyers slightly worse.
