Case Keenum throws four touchdown passes in win over Redskins

Keenum did participate in that one.

And with that, the Vikings improved to 7-2 on the season, on a day when their defense was far from flawless. His current starting quarterback, Case Keenum, played the best half of his career to give the Vikings a 28-17 lead, then survived two amateurish interceptions to run his and the team's winning streak to five. "There have been games where we don't fill up the stat sheet offensively, but we win and we play the game that needs to be played, which may be running the ball a few more times, it may be settling for field goals, it may be running clock, it may be taking a sack to run clock instead of forcing the ball down the field". "It was a huge first down at the end of the ball game where we kicked a field goal to make it a 10-point game". Is that more hard for you guys as an offense, where you feel extra pressure because you've got to match that? With this team, internal drama is as commonplace as ankle tape.

"A win's a win, so obviously I'm very pleased with that, but we made things interesting, " Keenum said.

"But a few missed opportunities, or an error here or there, kept us from coming away with the points and the overall production that we needed to come out with a win", he said. He's a great dude, a great teammate.

The Vikings do not have an experienced quarterback under contract for next season. "I told somebody on the field that Teddy definitely raises the cool factor of the quarterback group". They also have Sam Bradford, but he's heading to IR thanks to a bothersome knee issue.

He said that the injured soldier and policeman were shifted to a hospital where there condition is stated to be out of danger. A police officer said a militant hideout has been unearthed, while the search operation in the area is still in progress.

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

How important is it to him to play this year?

Latavius Murray (who scored on a 1-yard run) handled the tough yards and Jerick McKinnon handled the scat yards, and together they made for a decent running attack that helped set up a very effective power game. "But at the same time I think I just have to approach each day with the mindset that, hey, I'm going to get better".

It wasn't awesome when Keenum fluttered a ball into the air late in the third quarter that Swearinger snagged downfield at the Washington 19.

Of course they're going to play Bridgewater. "It adds up fast and we fell short".
