Washington (3-5) at Minnesota (1-7)

When: 7:30 p.m. today.

TV: NFL Network (cable).

Line: Redskins -2.5 (50)

The skinny: The Redskins needed a major second-half surge to win the NFC East last year, winning their last seven games. Up and down so far in 2013, they got a big OT win over San Diego and could get some serious momentum going against the Vikings – which might not be that hard to do. Minnesota gives up points in bunches, so it could be a big day for 'Skins QB Robert Griffin III. But the key for a Washington win is on defense. When Washington plays well on that side of the ball, the result is usually a positive one.

MattE's pick: Redskins 31, Vikings 23
