Following a Chris Kluwe punt that pinned the Redskins on their own 5-yard line, Donovan McNabb threw a strike intended for Santana Moss that bounced of his chest high into the air that E.J. Henderson came down with for the INT.
The Vikings were unable to reach the endzone after starting the drive at the Washington 9 and settled for a 31-yard FG by K Ryan Longwell.
Redskins KR Brandon Banks returned the ensuing kickoff 65 yards to the Minnesota 28, but Vikings DE Jared Allen sacked McNabb on the first play of the drive for a loss of 8.
The Redskins will start the 4th quarter at the Minnesota 36 trailing 17-7.
Update: Redskins K Graham Gano kicked a 40-yard FG to cut the deficit to 7. The Vikings lead 17-10 early in the 4th quarter.
