Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis (85) leaps over Minnesota Vikings middle linebacker Eric Kendricks (54) and strong safety Andrew Sendejo (34) during the first half of an NFL football game in Landover, Md., Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. Players not from Minnesota after the game called it "Duck, Duck, Goose". If Keenum starts to struggle, they won't hesitate to make the change.
Keenum's 49-yard bomb to Thielen on the third play of the second half set up his 7-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jarius Wright that gave the Vikings a 35-17 lead with 12:22 left in the third quarter. However, they are going to continue to let backup QB Case Keenum run the offense in Week 10 against Washington.
The Vikings had another touchdown celebration before that on Sunday, which proved to be costly.
The Minnesota Vikings are elated to see quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in full practice this week. He played in 10 games for the Redskins as a rookie, making 8 catches for 66 yards.
Harris's 36-yard catch over Minnesota cornerback Trae Waynes, who couldn't have been in much better position, was even more remarkable when you consider that it was his first of the season.
