That was a rare accomplishment for Alexander, who didn't pick off a pass at Clemson or in his first two National Football League seasons.
"I was very, very jealous that I wasn't in it, " Murray said. That celebration came a month after tight end Kyle Rudolph scored at Chicago the Vikings played "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck".
I thought we played excellent offensively. Save for a minute that his use of the poll was dubious at best for how it could have affected his body, but the fact that he earned the Vikings a 15-yard penalty on the ensuing kickoff is just not using your head (Washington took the kickoff back to the 40-yard and great field position). Appearing in all 16 regular-season games in 2014, 2015 and 2016, he has accumulated 63 career receptions in all while his 24 catches this time around are already a new single-season career-high mark. The interceptions were his first as a member of the Redskins.
Alexander actually had a decent return when Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a ball that was batted by Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph. Keenum threw three first half touchdowns and then a fourth on their opening drive of the second half to put the Vikings up 35-17 in the 3rd Quarter. Then on Case Keenum's next throw early in the fourth quarter, the SC product picked off another pass. The second one came on the first play of the fourth quarter and was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2.
The part that wasn't a clinic was the back-to-back interceptions by Washington safety D.J.
Despite the loss, Washington accomplished several milestones with a few listed here as provided by team public relations. Forbath might not like the surface, but that didn't matter Sunday. You better believe he kept the ball.
With his first rushing touchdown, Cousins passed Sonny Jurgensen (10) for sole possession of the second-most career rushing touchdowns by a Redskins quarterback. "I appreciate everybody that has helped me get there".
