Keenum finished 21-for-29 with 304 yards.
Because these are the Vikings, they can't reach 7-2 with a healthy roster and a simple quarterback depth chart.
Keenum bounced back to lead the Vikings on a drive that culminated in a 53-yard field goal by Kai Forbath with 7:45 left that put Minnesota up 38-27.
"They were loud", Thielen said of the Vikings fans. "They didn't tell me about it".
Zimmer was given a chance to say that Keenum remains his starter, to quell a week's worth of questions before a big game against Keenum's former team, and in that moment he may have revealed how badly he wants Teddy Bridgewater to be his quarterback. I thought we played excellent offensively.
Sunday also featured Stefon Diggs scoring on a 3-yard pass in the second quarter and hugging the goalpost, which was covered in camouflage as part of the NFL's Salute to Service campaign. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, costing Minnesota 15 yards. "It's our job to get the home field into the game, and we didn't do that at the end of the second quarter and second half".
Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for one touchdown but did throw an interception.
"How about Mackensie getting his first interception?" The second one came on the first play of the fourth quarter and was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2. - Morgan's touchdown was the first of his two-year career. Keenum started out by tacking up a fourth touchdown pass (to Jarius Wright), but followed that up with two picks on consecutive passes that brought Washington back into the game. "We were running the ball and passing the ball and protecting well".
"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.
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.
