Keenum likely to start for Vikings for Rodgers, Packers

Share

Case in point: A relatively peaceful Sunday in Chicago this week for the Minnesota Vikings, who were settled into their hotel rooms in advance of their Monday night game with the Bears.

Going into this season, the Vikings had high hopes for quarterback Sam Bradford. However, Cook tore his ACL against the Lions in week four and was placed on injury reserve shortly thereafter. The Green Bay offensive line is a disaster right now.

The Green Bay Packers have realistically employed two starting quarterbacks for the past 25 years. "That's just kudos to them for critiquing themselves and critiquing their game and getting themselves to that point". Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott rose to the occasion, much like he did when the teams faced off past year in the Divisional Playoffs; this time, it was Prescott's team that took a commanding 21-6 lead in the second quarter, compared to when the Packers lead 21-3 in the playoffs.

Ted Thompson has since plugged some holes.

"Don't let him have the ball, he's too good at that". That was the first and last big moment Walker had with the team. The Cowboys took a 21-6 lead in the first half thanks to three touchdown passes from quarterback Dak Prescott.

Following the 2004 season, the Vikings came to Lambeau Field in the first-ever postseason match up between the two teams and sent the Packers home with the image of Moss fake mooning the crowd after scoring a touchdown in that game.

It's not fun picking against the Vikings almost every week. He was benched before halftime after aggravating a left knee injury.

Two plays later, Rodgers astutely called for a running back draw with the Cowboys expecting pass. Jones burst into open space across the line of scrimmage and angled toward the right sideline for 15 yards. Which Keenum will the Vikings get on Sunday against the Packers? Obviously, we've played against [Tom] Brady and Manning, Peyton Manning, other Mannings, all these guys. With the coverage fairly tight, Keenum isn't afraid to throw it downfield, but he's not going to throw it, nor fit the ball, into tight windows.

Said Jones: "They definitely did a great job blocking downfield all game".

Keenum has yet to play on a team with the talent the Vikings now have, and he's looked good both on film and statistically (he's completed 64.5 percent of passes so far this season). In order to keep the Vikings from keeping pace with Green Bay's deadly offensive attack, the Packers defense will have to neutralize the threat of Diggs, who is easily the best offensive playmaker the Vikings have. We don't play with 11 guys on offense.

Latavius Murray, whom the Vikings signed this offseason from the Oakland Raiders, carries a frame similar to former Packers running back James Starks.

By the time Jones releases to his left and turns to look at Rodgers, the quarterback is being pounded to the ground. Ideally, he's their change-of-pace back, but once thrust into the lineup against Chicago, he was the difference in that game. The three pass catchers have combined for 45 catches, 733 yards and 11 touchdowns.

In the most recent meeting between the division rivals, Adam Thielen secured 12 catches for 202 yards. Diggs is quick and manages to get consistent separation. Randall Cobb contributed 29 yards in four receptions.

Rookie cornerback Kevin King (concussion) missed practice at midweek, as did safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring). The interior of the defensive line will need to get a push to give Rodgers nowhere to step up in the pocket.

That is just like Zimmer, not afraid to jump in head first. Sitting in the zone creates indecision and allows the inside receiver enough space in the flat to score.
