Despite a slow start as a returner in Arizona, Roberts will be given a chance at punt returns in Washington after having been an elite returner in college who led the nation in yards per return as a junior.

Week 9: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The big question this week is whether Robert Griffin III will get back in the saddle prior to Washington's Week 10 bye, or if the coaching staff lets Colt McCoy lead the charge at Minnesota this week. With a big 'W' under McCoy's belt on Monday Night Football (and a lost season for Washington at 3-5 in the NFC East at the half-way point), we expect to see McCoy appear again in Minnesota this weekend. He played a solid game in Dallas, posting 25/30 for 299 yards, zero TDs and one interception, with three sacks taken for -13 yards, and 7/16/1 rushing. The top Washington receivers were McCoy's main targets, with seven targets for 6/136/0 receiving for DeSean Jackson, four for 4/47/0 flowing to Pierre Garcon, and seven for 7/40/0 going to Jordan Reed. McCoy got the ball to the Washington playmakers. The Minnesota pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 212.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 passing TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 25 sacks generated (13th-ranked (tie) and tied for second in the NFL, respectively). Mike Glennon was sacked five times for -12 yards with one passing TD, one interception thrown. The Bills gave up six sacks of Kyle Orton for -28 yards, but he still posted 31/43 for 255 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown vs. the Vikings two games ago. This looks like a tough matchup for McCoy and company, on the road at Minnesota.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts failed to play big for Washington in a so-called "revenge game" against his former team. For the second straight week Roberts had a terrible drop on a pass that hit him hands, another drop from a high pass that bounced off his hands, and he coughed up a dubious fumble in the fourth quarter (his knee looked down on the replay) with Washington attempting to erase a seven point deficit. The turnover led to an Arizona FG and 10 point lead. Roberts picked up key yardage late in the fourth quarter TD drive, taking a swing pass 22 yards up the field into Cardinals territory. Roberts was heavily targeted by Cousins throughout the game, running short and intermediate routes out of the slot, but his day could have been much bigger if he had been able to haul in a greater percentage of his targets.r

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts played a minor role in Washington's game plan. His four targets on the day were his lowest since week one, and he was only able to haul two of them in for 18 yards. Roberts dropped a pass late in the second quarter that would have put Washington into FG range. Washington does appear to be trying to use the shifty slot receiver in creative ways, throwing an end-around swing pass to him for a nice nine yard gain. Roberts was again the primary punt and kick returner but failed to make an impact on the game in those phases.

2014 Week 8 vs DAL (5 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts was blanketed by Dallas working out of the slot, hauling in only one catch on five targets. He was targeted in the endzone on a McCoy lob into double coverage early in the first half, but was unable to outleap the defense and the play resulted in a Dallas interception. Roberts did have a nice punt return early in the game that helped set up Washington's first FG of the game. Roberts's production has declined with McCoy under center.
