Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson (26) hugged Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs (14) after the game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Late in the fourth quarter Thursday night, as the Vikings offense rolled through an 8:16 drive that would exhaust the remaining minutes of the team's 19-9 victory over the Washington Redskins, coach Mike Zimmer looked up at the U.S. Bank Stadium scoreboard to see a statistic that left him stunned.

"I was shocked when it said we had 428 yards and they had 200, and it was a 10-point game," Zimmer said. "I figured it'd be a tough game, but sometimes you just don't know when you're facing a team that's 1-6, whatever they were. They fought; they played hard."
