Winning Vikings Sticking With Keenum At Quarterback versus Surging Rams

However, Keenum had other ideas.

And he's having a career year: after Sunday's 38-30 win over Washington, Keenum's completion mark sits at 64.9 percent, with 11 touchdowns against five interceptions.

Corey Kluber aces it! Named AL Cy Young Award victor
But Sale had a sluggish finish, with a 4.09 E.R.A.in August and September, months in which Kluber's E.R.A. was 1.42. When it comes to a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball, there is not an award more coveted than the Cy Young.

It's hard to argue with Zimmer on this one: after Sam Bradford suffered what has turned out to be a season-ending knee injury in Week 1 (Bradford tried to play in Week 5 but bowed out before halftime), Keenum has stepped in and led the Vikings to a 5-2 record as starter. The quarterback accomplished this feat back in Week 8 against the Cleveland Browns and in Week 3 during a matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Head coach Mike Zimmer announced on Wednesday that Keenum will start on Sunday. The Vikings had a 35-20 lead when Keenum threw both of his interceptions; the second one set up a Redskins touchdown that cut the Vikings' lead to eight. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 18 points and 322.1 yards per game. Their defense is very comparable to the same unit of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Keenum's performance against the Steelers in Week 2 is arguably his worst of the year.

For reference, the current iPhone X has a 5.8-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus has a display size of 5.5 inches. Apple claimed that the chances of the Face ID failing are one in a million, but recent reports and tests show otherwise.

As Glazer notes, Bridgewater is still viewed as the franchise quarterback in Minnesota.

"Just like everybody predicted - Case Keenum with the 7-2 Minnesota Vikings going up against the 7-2 Rams", Keenum said with a laugh.

If starting Keenum this week seems like a safe decision by Minnesota, it's because it is. Keenum has made plays the last couple of weeks, but Goff has been on a different level nearly all season and forces defenses to respect the deep ball. Moreover, they're already riding a five-game winning streak.
