Mike Zimmer on how Case Keenum's play affects his plans for Teddy Bridgewater: It's going to be hard to yank him out of there right now. He's playing good. I still have really high hopes, you know a lot of things happen throughout the course of this season, so we'll just see how it goes.

Case Keenum's 65-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen is tied for the longest touchdown pass of Keenum's career. This is Thielen's third straight game with a receiving touchdown after having none in his first 7 games this season, per ESPN Stats and Information.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Just a hitch route from Adam Thielen on the 65-yard score. Make a defender miss and go. The Rams were in a zero-pressure look. Thielen now up to 123 yards on six receptions.

Latavius Murray has two rushing touchdowns today. He had two rushing touchdowns all season entering Sunday. He is the first Vikings player with two rushing touchdowns in a game since Adrian Peterson in Week 16 of 2015, per ESPN Stats and Information.

Play action has been a big part of what Pat Shurmur has designed for Case Keenum this season. Keenum was 2-of-5 for 24 yards using play action in the first half, per ESPN Stats and Info. Keenum was 12-of-18 passing for 91 yards in the first two quarters with an 83.3 passer rating.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Strange first half for the Rams and Vikings. Eight penalties for 75 yards between the two teams. Minnesota's defense held Los Angeles to its fewest first half point total (7) this season. Coming into this game, Rams were averaging 38.5 points per game on the road. That figure was on pace to be the second-most by any team in NFL history, behind the 2007 Patriots (39.3), per Elias.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Anthony Harris, who is filling in for injured Andrew Sendejo, strips the ball from Cooper Kupp at the goal line and recovers the fumble. Huge momentum shift the Vikings way. Minnesota will take over at the 1-yard line.
