"I think a great example is we had a third and one and we ran a boot and threw it to Thielen two yards short of the first down, two guys trying to tackle him and converted the first down", Zimmer said.

Fantasy Impact Overall, it was a fantastic effort from Keenum, though his two interceptions, which came on back-to-back throws, allowed the Redskins to get back into the game after it was well in hand.

But in the victory, he made it clear that the Vikings will need Teddy Bridgewater back in order to be a true contender.

Because these are the Vikings, they can't reach 7-2 with a healthy roster and a simple quarterback depth chart.

The Minnesota Vikings went into the offseason knowing that they needed a capable backup.

"They were loud", Thielen said of the Vikings fans.

"If they feel that way, then I got to do a better job of making sure they don't get a big head", coach Jay Gruden said Monday.

"We were consistent with drop-back game, with the play-action game", he said. Diggs said he wanted to pay homage to service members, but the Vikings were penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

That was until Swearinger stepped in for his first interception with the Redskins.

"I didn't see them when they were sitting on the ground over there, but I did see Diggs jump on the goal post and we had a little discussion, " Zimmer said of Sunday's celebration.

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 26 of 45 passes for one touchdown but did throw an interception. 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. The second one came on the first play of the fourth quarter and was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2.

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum almost let Washington back into the game. "We were running the ball and passing the ball and protecting well".

Look at this from the perspective of the Vikings' decision-makers: They owe it to this team to play their best quarterback, and they owe it to the franchise to be able to make an informed decision on the position for next year and beyond. That all but locked up another win for Keenum as the starter.
