Case Keenum will remain Vikings' starting QB in Week 12

Case Keenum will remain Vikings' starting QB in Week 12

Keenum keeps doing his job and making things happen by extending plays with his legs.

The Minnesota Vikings are on a six-game winning streak and sitting in a tie for second in the NFC at 8-2.

Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer was asked about Keenum's willingness to take risks and said he likes the courage in the former Houston Cougar's style of play. Because of that, they essentially just threw the Vikings in the last spot for Division leaders because the only thing they know about the Purple and Gold is that they have Case Keenum at quarterback. Keenum also was sacked two of the five total times he's been taken down this season.

Since then, Keenum has been on fire, and the Vikings haven't lost.

Keenum's completion percentage (65.7), touchdown percentage (4) and yards per attempt (7.4) are all up from his career averages, and his interception percentage (1.7) is down. None of those numbers are mind-boggling stats, but Keenum has been effective and the Vikings have survived injuries on both sides of the ball. Keenum, who went undrafted in 2012, insists he's always believed he could play this well. Bridgewater looked like the future of the team before his injury, and presumably, the team would like to see how he looks after a almost two-year absence.

Keenum continues to make it hard on Zimmer to make a change and Zimmer sounds like a coach willing to ride out Keenum while he's successful. "There's a lot of give-and-take and a lot of ways you can look at it, but just try to keep doing what I'm doing".

With Bridgewater breathing down his neck, Keenum has only elevated his play against solid competition.

That wasn't quite confirmation that Keenum would be starting against the Lions on Thanksgiving, but it didn't leave much room or rationale for any other decision. With an elite defense and a run game that's been buoyed by Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon, the Vikings rightfully have deep playoff aspirations.

Out of the multitudes of writers that write for the purplePTSD Network, I'm easily the most emotionally attached to the team (at least in terms of how I write) and because of that, I am the most in tuned to and offended by how the national sports media covers my favorite team.
