    We all know what the D.C. media says about the Redskins, but what’s going on behind enemy lines? During the season, we head over to the opposing side and look in on the game chatter in preparation for that week’s matchup.

    This week we’re checking out what the Vikings and the Minnesota media are saying about the Redskins.

    The media says…

    “This might be the week the Vikings end their nine-game drought without an interception. Merry Christmas. Grossman has handed out 18 picks in 11 appearances this year and can be flustered into throwing interceptions in bunches, especially if he gets too eager to exploit the Vikings’ weakened defensive backfield.” – The Post’s Mike Jones going behind enemy lines to The Star Tribune and taking a few digs at Grossman.

    “30: [Number of] combined interceptions thrown this season by Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman and Vikings rookie Christian Ponder, the third highest cumulative total among two quarterbacks who will face each other this weekend.” – The Star Tribune. Clearly it’s going to be an early Christmas for both secondaries.

    The team says…
