Vikings stick with Keenum as starting QB v Rams

NFL Power Rankings: Upstart Rams, Vikings battle in potential playoff preview

Vikings Announce Case Keenum Will Start At QB vs. Rams Over Teddy Bridgewater

Case Keenum is completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 1,914 yards, 11 touchdowns and five interceptions.

It's hard to argue with Zimmer on this one: after Sam Bradford suffered what has turned out to be a season-ending knee injury in Week 1 (Bradford tried to play in Week 5 but bowed out before halftime), Keenum has stepped in and led the Vikings to a 5-2 record as starter. Keenum has outperformed the expectations of a backup and has the Vikings sitting on top of the NFC North. Goff is at the helm of an offense on pace to lead the league in scoring after finishing dead last in points previous year.

Case Keenum will start again at quarterback this week for the Minnesota Vikings. "And business as usual is me doing my job". "Otherwise, he wouldn't dress" on the active roster on Sundays, Zimmer said. This game likely comes down to which offensive line holds up more, as these defenses are both one of the best at sacking the quarterback and creating game changing plays. They would have a 10-day break between that game and their December 3 trip to Atlanta to face the Falcons.

Israel Offers Aid to Iran-Iraq Earthquake Victims
In Washington, a USA official confirmed its authenticity, but said the deal was only preliminary and still subject to changes. Israel has long complained about the involvement of archenemy Iran , and its proxy Hezbollah, in Syria.

The Los Angeles Rams look for a fifth straight victory to build on their lead in the NFC West.

In the meantime, Keenum remains in charge of the offense.

Zimmer was asked whether Keenum's win streak played into the decision. He did start nine games for Los Angeles a year ago, completing 60.9 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Warmer weather, rising non-OPEC output threaten oil market balance
On Tuesday, the International Energy Agency cut its oil demand growth forecast by 100,000 barrels per day for both 2017 and 2018. Meanwhile, domestic United States oil output rose by another 25,000 barrel a day to 9.645m b/d.

"I can't put our team in tough spots like that", Keenum said.

In other words-if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But, you're winning football games with Keenum right now, so I'm not sure why you would rush to meddle with a winning formula at this point.
