Keenum leads Vikings to fifth straight victory

Vikings DE Everson Griffen (foot/back) is inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game at Washington. The touchdown grab Sunday was both his first reception of this season and the first score of his career.

But on the whole, Keenum's day was impressive, as former starter Teddy Bridgewater returned to the sidelines.

One of the few bright spots in the contest was the play of safety D.J. Swearinger.

During Sunday's 38-30 victory over Washington, Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught a 7-yard Case Keenum pass for a touchdown, a sweet little move in itself.

Bridgewater was activated last Wednesday from the physically unable to perform list, and there has been plenty of speculation about when he might regain his starting job.

And with that, the Vikings improved to 7-2 on the season, on a day when their defense was far from flawless.

Crowder is Washington's second-leading receiver with 28 catches for 272 yards this season. Five plays later, Keenum threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Diggs.

In the win, Thielen finished with eight catches for 166 yards and a touchdown. So which was better: Duck, Duck, Gray Duck or Leap Frog?

Quarterback Kirk Cousins passed for one touchdown and ran for two more.

Minnesota took seven minutes off the clock before Kai Forbath nailed a 53-yard field goal to push the lead to 38-27, and then stopped Washington on fourth-and-1 at the Minnesota 33.
