Keenum said, "I may have a Teddy Bridgewater jersey at home".
Keenum carried a flawless passer rating well into the third quarter, connecting on four touchdown passes and drilling deep strikes to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as the Vikings posted 28 points in the first half of a game for the first time since November 30, 2014.
Keenum, though, turned a bit wayward. Keenum felt pressure, drifted left and without setting his feet threw a helium-filled pass into triple coverage, where safety D.J. Swearinger intercepted it. The second pick led to the Redskins to closing within 35-27, but the Vikings (7-2) survived. Find me a better catch! "I think me, myself, put our team in a tough spot there". "They didn't tell me about it". He was emotional before the game about his comeback, shedding tears. "I've got a plan". With Teddy Bridgewater active, Keenum needed to play well in order to keep his job, and he likely did enough. He threw a career-high four touchdown passes, and ended the day with 304 passing yards on 21-for-29 passing. You better believe he kept the ball.
Diggs had 4 receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown in the win on Sunday.
After the Redskins pulled within eight in the third quarter, though, Keenum directed a seven-minute drive that ended in Kai Forbath's 53-yard field goal. Diggs, from a Maryland suburb of Washington, had four catches for 78 yards. Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.
It was hard for Zimmer to be too upset considering the Vikings have won five consecutive games. "And then, whether it's the interception or a couple red zone misses, and next thing you know, you fall short".
Robison moved into the starting lineup in place of Everson Griffen, who sat out with foot injury.
"We were consistent with drop-back game, with the play-action game", he said.
"We're going to come back and it fix it, " said linebacker Eric Kendricks. Prior to the start of this season, Grant has scored only two touchdowns for his National Football League career - both of which came back in 2015. "Case is awesome, " Bridgewater said. "The ball was getting spread around to everybody". 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.
That didn't lead to any points. "If he had caught more interceptions in college, he would have known what to do with the ball".
But on Keenum's next throw, Swearinger jumped an out route intended for Rudolph and took it back to the Vikings 2 before fumbling out of bounds.
