Frazier says there is no advantage gleaned from the fact Minnesota has won in Washington each of the past two years, and FedEx Field was the site where Frazier earned his first head coaching victory when he took over from the fired Brad Childress midway through the 2010 season and won his first game as the interim Vikings' coach with a 17-13 win on the road against the Redskins.

A win would keep the Vikings' streak and positive momentum going. Minnesota (4-1) was won three straight games and is tied atop the NFC North. The Redskins (2-3) are at the bottom of the NFC East.Here are five things to watch as the Vikings try to keep their FedEx Field winning streak...

Robert Griffin III was able to show on Sunday versus the Minnesota Vikings that he was a QB that is multi-facted, one that can throw and one that can run. Just one week after getting a concussive hit at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons, RG3 was able to show against the Vikings that he is the quarterback that everyone expected him to be as he was able to put together a Pro Bowl like...

Chad Greenway had veteran mentors instruct him when he entered the league six years ago. Now he’s trying to do the same with a relatively inexperienced linebacker corps and keep them focused on positive momentum.
Jerome Simpson is the biggest question mark of three offensive stars for the Vikings dealing with injuries. Plus, Mistral Raymond is working his way back and other injury news.
Vikings defensive lineman Everson Griffen is expected to play Sunday and returned to work Friday, only two days after his mother’s unexpected death in Eden Prairie.
Before today's Washington Redskins/Minnesota Vikings affair, some questioned whether or not Robert Griffin the 3rd should play after suffering a concussion.

One of those scores was this 76-yard touchdown run to seal the victory:

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the Washington Redskins will receive a “hefty fine” for not coming out and saying Robert Griffin III had a concussion during last week’s loss to the Falcons. Instead they only said he was “shaken up.”Glazer says the Redskins are facing a fine that could be $25,000 or more.
Robert Griffin III dropped back, waited a beat, then quickly took off. A first down on third-and-6 might have been enough to put the game away.
Instead, the Washington Redskins rookie left the Minnesota Vikings defense behind as he streaked down the left sideline for 76 yards. He didn't stop until he took a seat on the front row, performing what is quickly becoming known as...
