LANDOVER, Md. -- Robert Griffin III ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns, including a 76-yard scamper with 2:43 to play, and the Washington Redskins ended an eight-game home losing streak Sunday with a 38-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

One week after he left the game early with his first NFL concussion, Griffin also completed 17 of 22 passes for 182 yards and one touchdown with one interception.

The Redskins (3-3) feasted on a Vikings team that hadn't allowed more than 23 points in a game this season.

Minnesota's three-game winning streak ended. The Vikings now are 4-2.

Minnesota held an early 9-0 lead but paid the price for getting field goals instead of touchdowns in the red zone.

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder completed 35 of 52 passes for 352 yards.
