Case Keenum throws four touchdown passes in win over Redskins

Case Keenum throws four touchdown passes in win over Redskins”

After the game Sunday, Zimmer revealed that he still isn't ready to detail much of his strategy, but he might have given an important clue about where it's headed.

Starting in the second quarter and then extending into the third quarter, the Vikings at one point scored four touchdowns on four straight drives.

Keenum, though, turned a bit wayward.

And with that, the Vikings improved to 7-2 on the season, on a day when their defense was far from ideal. "It looked good. I caught the very end of it". "I think me, myself, put our team in a tough spot there. We haven't played with a big lead before, and we need to learn how to do that as well". He was emotional before the game about his comeback, shedding tears.

Zimmer's plan is to inform his players on Wednesday whether Case Keenum will continue in the starting role, or if Teddy Bridgewater will return to the job he held before injuring his knee in August 2016. In the second half, quarterback Kirk Cousins threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-eight and Chris Thompson was stuffed on a fourth-and-1 when the Redskins were chasing a comeback. He is now 5-2 in his seven starts this season. You better believe he kept the ball. Keenum started out by tacking up a fourth touchdown pass (to Jarius Wright), but followed that up with two picks on consecutive passes that brought Washington back into the game. Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Sunday also featured Stefon Diggs scoring on a 3-yard pass in the second quarter and hugging the goalpost, which was covered in camouflage as part of the NFL's Salute to Service campaign.

"Playing leapfrog, they did it without me, " Keenum said. "There have been games where we don't fill up the stat sheet offensively, but we win and we play the game that needs to be played, which may be running the ball a few more times, it may be settling for field goals, it may be running clock, it may be taking a sack to run clock instead of forcing the ball down the field".

"We're right where we want to be, but our work isn't over, " said defensive end Brian Robison.

Bridgewater was activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list last week and putting him in against the 7-2 Rams seems like it might be rushing things.

While it wasn't enough to help the Redskins get a victory over the Vikings, Swearinger has been named Kia MVP of the Game. The Vikings gave up almost double the 16.9 points they had allowed per game during the first half of the season.

That was until Swearinger stepped in for his first interception with the Redskins.

Well, that's one way to get your first touchdown in the NFL.

"That was awesome, " Morgan said. "This week, we had to play the game that needed to be played, which was going to be: we've got to move the ball quickly, we have to be efficient on all of our possessions, we've got to score. We were running the ball and passing the ball and protecting well".

That didn't lead to any points.

Thielen runs crisp route, has great hands and is an incredible gamer.

To be fair, Keenum has not gone into a week as the announced starter after any of his wins.
