Players and coaches on both sides of the field noticed.
By the end of the night, countertops in the press box will be heaped with a forest's worth of paper bearing transcribed quotes, enough to create a bonfire of the inanities.
"That's what's tough - you put the ball in the air so well, so much of the time", he said. "I'm just disappointed I wasn't able do get in on that". "We can't be satisfied being 7-2". In the first game with Teddy Bridgewater active since 2015, Keenum played some of his best football of his career for almost three quarters on Sunday. Minnesota has won five games in a row with Keenum being the primary quarterback, so he would be the front runner to start next week against the Rams, despite Teddy Bridgewater's imminent return.
We'll see who the Vikings roll with in Week 11 at quarterback. "Sometimes plans change. We'll see how it goes and we'll sit down this week and visit about it and kind of go from there". Then on Case Keenum's next throw early in the fourth quarter, the SC product picked off another pass. In two career games against the Redskins at FedEx Field, the Vikings receiver has 17 receptions for 242 yards and 1 touchdown. Keenum did participate in that one.
"Interceptions are going to happen, " Zimmer said. "Those two interceptions, that's how you let teams come back in the ballgame". Washington ended the day with 394 yards, the most any team has posted against the Vikings this season.
"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.
"That was awesome, " Morgan said. "My spirit just sensed that he was a good man and the spirit never lies".
"Playing leapfrog, they did it without me, " Keenum said. He's a great dude, a great teammate. "They didn't tell me about it". So, Keenum, who probably experienced the longest bye week of any Vikings on the team, came out and made a huge statement that the job should remain his. They can't bet on Sam Bradford's full recovery. He was picked off on consecutive throws by D.J. Swearinger.
Despite his injury, the trade for Bradford and the rise of Keenum, Bridgewater remains the Vikings' best hope for the future.
"While we were 2-for-4 in the red zone, we very possibly could have been 4-for-4", Cousins said. The only question is when. "It adds up fast and we fell short".
