Sstarting QBs the Vikings have used since 2011. Case Keenum, pictured, became the ninth on Sunday. The Vikings have had only two QBs — Teddy Bridgewater in 2015 and Christian Ponder in 2012 — play all 16 games of a regular season in that stretch.
A week after starter Sam Bradford lit up the Saints for a 10.8-yard average per throw, Keenum averaged 4.5 yards per throw on 37 attempts. Tight end Kyle Rudolph’s impressive one-handed grab produced Keenum’s longest completion, 27 yards
Dalvin Cook had just 3 rushing yards at halftime in Pittsburgh, where the Vikings run game was hampered by poor execution and holding penalties. After some “adjustments,” according to Mike Zimmer, Cook picked up 61 yards on six carries in the second half.
