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

Case Keenum completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 304 yards and four touchdowns on Sunday against the Redskins. In two career games against the Redskins at FedEx Field, the Vikings receiver has 17 receptions for 242 yards and 1 touchdown.

Fantasy Impact Overall, it was a fantastic effort from Keenum, though his two interceptions, which came on back-to-back throws, allowed the Redskins to get back into the game after it was well in hand. There has been plenty of speculation about when Bridgewater might regain his starting job, but Keenum certainly did enough Sunday that he'll start next Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium against the Los Angeles Rams.

Because these are the Vikings, they can't reach 7-2 with a healthy roster and a simple quarterback depth chart. He's the backup to Case Keenum this weekend, and Minnesota isn't going to rush him back. The Vikings gave up almost double the 16.9 points they had allowed per game during the first half of the season.

Keenum said, "I may have a Teddy Bridgewater jersey at home". That celebration came a month after tight end Kyle Rudolph scored at Chicago the Vikings played "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck". Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

It is also worth noting that the Redskins lead the Vikings 10-7 at seven at the end of the first quarter.

Keenum should be able to stay consistent against Washington this week.

Alexander actually had a decent return when Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a ball that was batted by Vikings nose tackle Linval Joseph. He was one of five different Minnesota players to score a touchdown, the other being Latavius Murray on a 1-yard run in the first quarter.

Then with a chance to put the game away, Keenum threw a third-down pass inaccurately in Thielen's direction, forcing Kai Forbath to kick a 53-yard field goal.

Things couldn't have started better for Keenum on Sunday. They were 8-12 on third downs (and I would say they stopped Cousins on his quarterback sneak in which he was awarded a touchdown even though his forward progress was stopped) but the team needs to come up bigger in fourth down situations.
