Keenum, Thielen, lead Vikings to fifth straight victory

Keenum, Thielen, lead Vikings to fifth straight victory”

Keenum carried a ideal passer rating well into the third quarter, connecting on four touchdown passes and drilling deep strikes to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as the Vikings posted 28 points in the first half of a game for the first time since November 30, 2014.

Vikings: They played without DE Everson Griffen because of a foot injury. Find me a better catch! Next week, a very tough Los Angeles Rams team comes to town and will battle the Purple in a battle of divisional leaders. That all but locked up another win for Keenum as the starter.

The Vikings do not have an experienced quarterback under contract for next season. Keenum felt pressure, drifted left and without setting his feet threw a helium-filled pass into triple coverage, where safety D.J. Swearinger intercepted it.

In a season with so much league-wide adversity, the return of QB Teddy Bridgewater is easily one of the most uplifting stories of the year. The Vikings have a very physical and mobile line and it was on great display in this game.

After a 38-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Washington Redskins have fallen out of the USA TODAY NFL Power Rankings top 10. They gave up a lot of points by theirs (or any defense's) standard, but some of those points came because of the turnover by the offense. Swearinger, which helped his side get back to within a score. The Vikings gave up almost double the 16.9 points they had allowed per game during the first half of the season. He appeared in 10 games as a rookie last season, tallying eight catches for 66 yards.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins had three TDs - two rushing and one passing - and was 26 of 45 for 327 yards with an interception. "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". Those are the kinds of seasons that show up for Adam Thielen. That celebration came a month after tight end Kyle Rudolph scored at Chicago the Vikings played "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck". "It's very important, " he said. "They were great and doing the Skol chant, and all that". Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

To round out the NFC North, the 5-4 Lions are No. 13, the 5-4 Packers are No. 19 and the 3-6 Bears are No. 27. This was an important game for both teams as they hoped to make a run during the second half of the season toward the playoffs.

Turnovers are killers. They put the Vikings back in the game in the first half and Washington back in it in the second.
