Keenum, Thielen, lead Vikings to fifth straight victory

The Minnesota Vikings picked up a key road win in Week 10 over the Washington Redskins by the score of 38 to 30.

The Redskins were just 2-of-4 in the red zone and 5-of-14 on third down.

That was until Swearinger stepped in for his first interception with the Redskins.

"You have to make those plays", Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.

"I just felt it was a unique game in a sense that we moved the ball as we wanted to up and down the field", Cousins told 106.7 The Fan's Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier during his weekly segment Monday - 'Under Center, ' driven by the Lindsay Automotive Group. "If they're not ready, then that's on me". The play of the day, and maybe even the season, came when Washington Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris reached back for a one-handed grab for a touchdown. And of course they did in the final minutes of the game when Tom Johnson busted through the line to tackle the running back for a loss on fourth down-a huge play that helped seal the win.

"We were consistent with drop-back game, with the play-action game", he said. It's not only important for him but also necessary for the Vikings to figure out whether they want to sign Bridgewater when he's a free agent in 2018. Sunday, Mike Zimmer said more in one short, subtle, sentence than all of those recyclables combined, at once writing the mystery of the season and hinting at its ending. "Those two interceptions, that's how you let teams come back in the ballgame". "That's the pedigree of a championship football team and we didn't show that".

But in the end, the defense rose to the occasion to make play after play and the Vikings held to take their record to 7-2 and hold onto their two-game in the NFC North Division. "Not saying we're not consistently playing well".

The Vikings run game was also strong on Sunday giving the offense a good balance.

"Everybody in the league is really good", quarterback Kirk Cousins said.

Many of us are expecting Zimmer to make the transition from Keenum to Bridgewater at some point in the coming weeks, but the guess here is that Zimmer has every intention of starting Keenum for the fifth consecutive game on Sunday and for the eighth time in nine games.

NOTES: WR Ryan Grant is in the NFL's concussion protocol, S DeAngelo Hall has a bone bruise in his right knee and DL Anthony Lanier has a sprained knee.
