  • Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater warms up before Sunday's game against Washington

He threw a pair of interceptions to safety D.J. Swearinger, one late in the third quarter and one on the first play of the fourth quarter. He finished the game with a much more down-to-earth quarterback rating of 117.0 (21 of 29 for 304 yards and four touchdown passes).

The Vikings are becoming well known for their celebrations. However, they are going to continue to let backup QB Case Keenum run the offense in Week 10 against Washington. "I told somebody on the field that Teddy definitely raises the cool factor of the quarterback group".

For much of the game, Keenum looked ready to seize NFC offensive player of the week honors. Keenum did participate in that one.

Latavius Murray (who scored on a 1-yard run) handled the tough yards and Jerick McKinnon handled the scat yards, and together they made for a decent running attack that helped set up a very effective power game. Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. Appearing in all 16 regular-season games in 2014, 2015 and 2016, he has accumulated 63 career receptions in all while his 24 catches this time around are already a new single-season career-high mark.

"We'll just see how it goes, " Zimmer said.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for one touchdown but did throw an interception. Swearinger, cornerback Josh Norman and other players lamented a lack of consistency from week to week, leading to the question of whether the Redskins can handle and sustain success.

Keenum should be able to stay consistent against Washington this week.

Washington (4-4) played without six injured starters in a 17-14 win over the Seahawks. He drilled a 53-yard field goal in the fourth quarter, making him 5 of 5 this season on field-goal attempts of 50 yards or more, and made all five of his extra-point attempts. "But you know, he's an excitable guy and he needs to understand when are the good plays, when are the bad plays sometimes". Prior to the start of this season, Grant has scored only two touchdowns for his National Football League career - both of which came back in 2015. "It was really cool".
