Case Keenum played brilliantly on Sunday. He threw accurately all over the field and stayed in the pocket much better than he did the previous week in Pittsburgh.
He did not look like a journeyman, which is what he has been.
So I looked up what he has done previously in his career following big games.
In 2013, he put together three excellent starts at the beginning of the season.
Game 1: 271 yards, 1 TD, 0 interceptions
Game 2: 350 yards, 3 TDs, 0 interceptions
Game 3: 201 yards, 3 TDs, 0 interceptions.
The making of a star, right?
In his next five games he threw for more than 169 yards only once while throwing a combined two touchdowns and six interceptions.
Last year, Keenum put up 321 yards, three touchdowns and one interception on Oct. 16. The next week he threw for 291 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions.
If there is a lesson here it is this:
Keenum has talent. He can get on a roll. What he hasn't done previously in his career is sustain success.
