So it makes sense that while many Vikings fans likely were pessimistic about the team's chances when Keenum was thrown in as the emergency starter in Week 2 against the Steelers, Kingsbury saw the beginnings of what would be a magical year.
As previously mentioned, the public still loves the Saints to cover as an underdog. If the Vikings can play straight up with no turnovers from the offense, they will win this game. "He has a little bit of everything". That would be awesome and a huge homefield advantage for the Vikes. "He's just fast and physical, a smart player". Bradford had just produced an injury-free career-best performance in 2016, after all, so the Vikings were banking on him. Three of the NFC's four teams left are dome teams. Listen to the game on the home of the Saints, WWL. That's fine. Brees showed the Panthers that he may be getting older, but he's still the same quarterback of the past few years.
Special teams are often the silent difference maker in most evenly matched games.
Four months later, the Vikings and Keenum are still playing. Brees hasn't lost a step. Vikings - QB Case Keenum set career highs in yards passing (3,547), TD passes (22) and passer rating (98.3). Keenum was a borderline MVP candidate this season. For part 4, we look at Cameron Jordan vs. the Vikings' O-line.
Riley Reiff was the first free agent signing the Vikings made heading into this season.in the National Football League and his $26.3 million guaranteed is the third-highest mark, showing just how important the Vikings viewed him. He's been that good.
Turkey warns citizens against travelling to US
Following the arrest of local US Consulate staff, US officials in Turkey had reported stopping visa issuance to American citizens. Turkey has called for his extradition, but the United States says sufficient evidence has yet to be put to a court.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - When Minnesota's offense huddled for the first time that mid-September afternoon in Pittsburgh, Case Keenum's energy and confidence quickly filled the circle. Would anyone be shocked if Keenum played poorly? "I think his faith has been that for him".
"I don't know how the Boston Globe would know because I haven't made any decisions yet", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
"It's a big stage where you want to be able to show your stuff, play your best football and just not go home - do whatever you got to do to not go home and advance to the next week and help this team", Thomas said. Like Everson Griffen, the Saints' pass rusher can overpower tackles or he can beat them around the corner. Anthony Barr is a problem coming off the edge. It doesn't matter how much faith the Vikings have in their defense.
