Keenum leads Vikings to fifth straight victory

Keenum leads Vikings to fifth straight victory

Washington Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris was promoted from the practice squad earlier this week and he's already got a highlight-reel catch he'll remember forever against the Minnesota Vikings.

Keenum finished 21-of-29 passing for 304 yards and four touchdowns, more than offsetting the two turnovers.

Washington dipped to 4-5 with the home loss.

On the day the former SC product produced three tackles and two pass defenses to go with the two interceptions.

Then, on the first play of the fourth quarter, safety D.J. Swearinger intercepted his second Keenum pass and returned it 31 yards to the Minnesota 2-yard line. However, Redskins coach Jay Gruden challenged the ruling on the field and was rewarded with a touchdown.

The Vikings quickly tied it. Keenum found wide receiver Stefon Diggs streaking down the left sideline and their 51-yard connection set up Latavius Murray's 1-yard touchdown run.

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum almost let Washington back into the game. Keenum should not struggle too bad against Washington, but he will probably not have a big game Sunday, either. Crowder has been Washington's punt returner in every game since he entering the National Football League in 2015.
