Case Keenum puts Vikings back up 14-10

AP

Teddy Bridgewater is back from his traumatic knee injury, but it might be hard for the Vikings to justify putting him back on the field.

Case Keenum continues to play well enough to give the Vikings a chance and then some, as they took a 14-10 lead over Washington on his touchdown to Stefon Diggs.

Keenum is 6-of-9 for 119 yards and touchdown so far, playing the kind of efficient football he’s been playing since replacing the injured Sam Bradford. No one really thinks he’s going to hold Bridgewater off for long, but he’s giving them plenty of time to make sure the former first-rounder is ready and comfortable when he does resume his normal role.

Washington has played well so far, but has to deal with injuries on offense again.

Wide receiver Ryan Grant is being evaluated for a concussion and won’t return, and running back Rob Kelley is questionable to return with a knee injury. Center Spencer Long is in and out of the game after missing time with a knee injury.

    Um, a lot of people do actually. Just because nobody in the PFT bubble thinks so doesn’t mean that’s also what the fans think.

  2. Having Keemun play very good right now is the best thing for this potentially muddy QB situation down the road. It helps us maintain or build a lead in the NFC north, it gives more time for teddy to get more reps in practice, and will give Zim a chance to possibly get teddy in a game that is well in hand, late in a game.

    But don’t kid yourself. Teddy will get on the field this season. They wanna know what they have in him or don’t have. And keenum is playing himself into a pretty nice contract next season.

    Come on gerby! You mad bro? They are creative. Although, as a packa fan, you’ll have to watch our games to see a td.

  4. Any Questions about who the Vikings QB is, HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!
    I have been chastised all year for being a Case Keenum supporter.
    It is your time to shine baby!, The Vikings are a COMPLETE team.

    Green Bay lastbscored a TD when?

  6. Keenum: 3 TD passes in the first half. But he should totally be benched for a guy who hasn’t played for a year and a half. Maybe I’m misremembering Bridgewater’s last year as the starter, but I seem to recall him only throwing for 14 TDs in 16 games.

    When lousy Kirk Cousins is far and away the best QB stepping on the field over every QB on your depth chart, you know you have a serious problem. I’m suppose to believe the Redskins are going to lose to Case Keenum and an overrated defense who has played NOBODY when our defense is way better, gone into harsh conditions and won under REAL talent like Ryan Kerrigan and Josh Norman. Fake news/6-2 record. Not a Packers fan, an NFL fan telling you unless Tarkenton makes a comeback, Minnesota will always be irrelevant and a loser just like the Philadelphia Team. Redskins by at least 14.

    You spelled ‘Vikings’ wrong.

    *******

    No, that would be the Lambeau “Grope”.

    Grown men allowing themselves to be repeatedly groped by strangers on TV – that is embarrassing.

  9. Keenum is playing great football. He’s playing like an mvp. This is keenums team. What has Bridgewater done in his career to bench keenum who’s has his team 6-2 and will most likely be 7-2 after today. He’s has his team up 28-17 with 3 tds. He’s amazing. Bridgewater ain’t no Russell Wilson or tom brady. He’s mediocre. Keenum makes Bridgewater look like a rookie. I’ll take keenum over Bridgewater any day. That’s a no brainer. If keenum gets benched for Bridgewater this season, the coach deserves to get fired. Bridgewater is mediocre and injury prone. I would trade Bridgewater and sign keenum to a long term contract. Do not let keenum test free agency. Someone will steal him from the vikings. Then you’re stuck with a mediocre injury prone weak arm Bridgewater. I’ve always liked keenum,back with the texans. He’s a confident qb who doesn’t quit and plays lights out and protects the ball . I wish the niners had him. Keenum is playing 100 times better than teddy has ever played in his career. Keenum is way better. Its not even close. Who is teddy Bridgewater? What has he ever done? vikings will make one of the biggest blunders in nfl history if they keep teddy the mediocre qb Bridgewater over case the killer keenum.

  10. Man, what is up with the Bridgewater slams. Keenum is the starter and will be till he plays himself out of the position. This is the best 0-line for the Vikings in years allowing Keenum time to play great. Every negative comment above toward Teddy has been said of Keenum who is a vet. Vikings are playing like a team and rolling. This a good problem to have. The game isn’t even over yet and Keenum just threw 2 interceptions. The season is only midway through. Be thankful we have two promising qb’s…

    Even the Packer trolls would rather watch a Viking game, while the Packers are playing at the same time.

    LOL, Thielen made Norman look like a high school CB trying to cover him. If Minnesota is irrelevant and a loser, what does that say about your lowly craptastic team that lost at home to a 3rd string QB, an undrafted WR that’s probably still catching a few passes in your stadium, and a 2nd and 3rd string RB running wild for 6-7 yds a pop? No wonder Cousins never wants to sign a long term contract with that team, I’d want out knowing I was playing for one of the worst owners in the game too. It should be fun watching the Redskins overpaying for a mid level vet QB and spending another 1st rd pick on a future washout QB. Maybe they can trade another half dozen picks for an RGIII type QB.
