Still, Keenum completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards.

On the day the former SC product produced three tackles and two pass defenses to go with the two interceptions. Keenum finished the contest with 27 completions for 288 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.

Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis (85) leaps over Minnesota Vikings middle linebacker Eric Kendricks (54) and strong safety Andrew Sendejo (34) during the first half of an NFL football game in Landover, Md., Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. He took 43 passing attempts in the win Sunday. Harris is the cousin of Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen. Harris, promoted from the practice squad Saturday, made a diving one-handed catch near the pylon. However, Redskins coach Jay Gruden challenged the ruling on the field and was rewarded with a touchdown.

With the Vikings trailing 10-7 early in the second quarter, Keenum hit Thielen over the middle on third-and-4 for 37 yards to the Washington 19. Stefon Diggs caught a touchdown from Keenum, raced to the goal post and jumped on it. If Keenum starts to struggle, they won't hesitate to make the change. It will feel like a big game, but the Vikings won't be required to win it.

Thielen had another big game with eight catches for 166 yards and the score.

The Vikings' leapfrog celebration was legal, but Diggs leaping into the base of the crossbar was good for a 15-yard penalty, even in the New Fun League.

Vikings: They played without DE Everson Griffen because of a foot injury.
