The Minnesota Vikings Name Case Keenum Starter

Adjust Comment Print

There had been speculation that Teddy Bridgewater, who was recently activated after his inspiring recovery from a major knee injury, would get the nod ahead of Keenum despite the team reeling off five straight wins behind some big performances by the journeyman QB out of Houston. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp have combined for 1,039 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Todd Gurley has 35 receptions. Keenum has outperformed the expectations of a backup and has the Vikings sitting on top of the NFC North. Goff is at the helm of an offense on pace to lead the league in scoring after finishing dead last in points a year ago.

The Minnesota Vikings (7-2) are riding in a five-game winning streak including a 38-30 win over the Washington Redskins.

Zimmer said the decision to start Keenum, who spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons with the Rams, was "not difficult" as his team prepares for Sunday's important home game at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Vikings were 21st in my rankings and the Rams were 26th, which shows you what the heck I know.

After being sidelined since August of 2016 with a knee injury, Bridgewater was active this past week.

Zimmer said Bridgewater is ready now to play in a game. Jared Goff is completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 2,385 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. This game likely comes down to which offensive line holds up more, as these defenses are both one of the best at sacking the quarterback and creating game changing plays. Eric Kendricks leads the Minnesota Vikings with 71 tackles, Everson Griffen has 10 sacks and Harrison Smith has three interceptions. Kind of tough to bench Keenum at this point, no? "And it ain't broken, so you don't fix it".
