Vikings QB Case Keenum throws TD pass, gets left out of celebration

In one game, Keenum wrote a brilliant dissertation on why he should keep the job, then jammed it into the nearest shredder.

The difference is that Zimmer appears to have two pretty good choices and it wouldn't be surprising if he keeps us guessing about his starter for weeks to come.

"Why would I tell you when I haven't told anybody else?" "It looked good. I caught the very end of it".

Keenum said, "I may have a Teddy Bridgewater jersey at home".

That's all probably part of Zimmer's thinking for managing the position going forward, but he isn't ready to let you know his plan just yet. I had no idea it was coming.


Bridgewater was activated Wednesday from the physically unable to perform list and didn't get into the game.

The Vikings are becoming well known for their celebrations.

There are many who want to stick with Keenum and based on his first-half play on Sunday (11 of 14 for 188 yards with three touchdowns and a flawless 158.3 passer rating) that makes sense. Keenum did participate in that one. And with Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph, the Vikings have a great group of pass catchers. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, costing Minnesota 15 yards.

Those who were not familiar with the name Maurice Harris heading into Week 10 of the National Football League season could not be blamed.

He did have one in a 2016 preseason game, but his last previous one in a game that counted was at Immokalee (Fla.) High School.


The Redskins gambled early, converting two fourth-downs in the first half but didn't have the same luck late.

The Vikings do not have an experienced quarterback under contract for next season. "If he had caught more interceptions in college, he would have known what to do with the ball".

Alexander actually had a decent return when Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a ball that was batted by Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph. At the time, the Redskins trailed 21-17 and had the ball with 1:49 left.

Cousins also threw a costly interception near the end of the first half, which the Vikings capitalized on.

Well, that's one way to get your first touchdown in the NFL. "That was a gift, " Keenum said. The play of the day, and maybe even the season, came when Washington Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris reached back for a one-handed grab for a touchdown. Forbath might not like the surface, but that didn't matter Sunday. He also added two rushing touchdowns. You better believe he kept the ball. "I appreciate everybody that has helped me get there".
