Keenum completed 25 of 40 passes for 318 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round victory over the Saints.
Keenum marched the Vikings' offense up and down the field throughout the first two quarters of play, setting up both Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon for rushing touchdowns to put Minnesota up 17-0 at half. However, the Saints' defense tightened up thereafter and Keenum couldn't get much of anything going before hitting Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard, game-winning touchdown as time expired. While it wasn't a huge statistical outing for the quarterback -- especially since the bulk of his fantasy production came on the last play of regulation -- Keenum did just enough to advance his team to next weekend's NFC championship game against the top-seeded Eagles. DFS owners considering the 29-year-old quarterback should keep in mind that Philadelphia boasted one of the NFL's best defenses during the regular season, allowing just 3.8 yards per rush (sixth lowest) and 6.5 yards per pass attempt (third lowest).
Keenum was 21-of-29 passing for 189 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's win over Chicago.
Keenum didn't need to do too much in the passing game after the Vikings got an early lead, but he was efficient as usual with a 101.1 passer rating. He'll try to keep his unexpected breakout season going at home in the playoffs after a bye.
Keenum completed 14 of 25 passes for 139 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's 16-0 victory at Green Bay.
Overall, Keenum's stat line wasn't impressive by any metric, but he managed the game once again, avoiding a turnover for the ninth time in 14 appearances this season. In fact, the 139 passing yards marked his fewest in any game this season and were joined by four carries for minus-two yards. He salvaged his day, though, with a TD connection with Stefon Diggs to conclude the Vikings' third drive of the evening and set the tone for yet another win. If the Vikings emerge from this weekend with the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs -- a Panthers loss or tie Sunday and an Eagles win Monday will ensure it -- Keenum likely will hand off QB duties to backup Teddy Bridgewater in Week 17.
Keenum completed 20 of 23 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 20-yard rush in Sunday's 34-7 victory over the Bengals.
Keenum was accurate and efficient, misfiring on just three passes while throwing touchdown passes from 20 yards and one yard out to Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph, respectively. He was replaced by Teddy Bridgewater after the Rudolph score gave Minnesota a 34-0 lead, but there's no quarterback controversy here. Any inkling of such a narrative was put to rest when Bridgewater promptly threw an interception on his first passing attempt.
Keenum will start Week 15 against the Bengals, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The rumors about Teddy Bridgewater taking the job went quiet the past month as Keenum continued to play at a high level. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer made it clear that one bad outing won't cost Keenum the job, as Sunday's 31-24 loss in Carolina was preceded by eight consecutive victories, with five of those coming against teams that currently own winning records. Keenum threw two picks and lost a fumble in Sunday's loss, but he also tossed a pair of touchdowns while accounting for 320 yards of offense (40 on the ground).
