RG3 helps Washington shut door on Vikings



So why did the Vikings have so much trouble in the early going?

"I don't know," Ponder said, "what the issue is."

NOTES: Ponder finished 35 for 52 for 352 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. Ponder also lost a fumble, which helped the Redskins score two touchdowns 13 seconds apart in the second quarter. ... WR Jerome Simpson was inactive because of a back problem that causes weakness and numbness in his left leg. "I just didn't feel comfortable with what I was seeing in practice," Frazier said. ... Peterson and Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall jawed at each other a bit after one play. "He slapped me in the face after making a good tackle on me. And I was just telling him, 'Hey, don't do me like that, brother.' I looked him in the eyes, and he knew I meant business," Peterson said. "But it's all respect. I know sometimes you get caught up in the emotions and you do things you don't really intend to."
