The Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer announced this week that Case Keenum would remain the starting quarterback for this game. The question was would Teddy Bridgewater, who is now healthy be ready and get the start? Keenum has been good filling in for Sam Bradford, and get a chance to take on his former team in the Rams.

Keenum has thrown for just shy of 2,000 yards on the season with 11 touchdowns. Keenum has a great connection with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Thielen leads the team with 793 yards and 2 touchdowns. Minnesota ranks 12th in passing yards, 11th in rushing, and their 24.1 points per game is 10th in the league. The Vikings are without their rookie running back Dalvin Cook, who tore his ACL.

Rams Looking to Stay Red Hot

The Los Angeles Rams, led by head coach Sean McVay, and he has turned things around since the Jeff Fisher days. McVay is leading the Rams to the top scoring offense in the league. The Rams are scoring 32.9 points per game. Los Angeles ranks in the Top 10 in both passing and rushing, with Jared Goff leading the way behind center in his second season in the league.

Todd Gurley is approaching 1,000 yards rushing on the ground. The running back out of Georgia has rushed for 754 yards and 7 touchdowns on the season. Robert Woods, who is in his first season since coming over from the Buffalo Bills is the leading receiver with 622 yards and 4 touchdowns. The Rams are coming off wins at the Jaguars, with Cardinals, at Giants and with Texans.

Rams Win Again

The Los Angeles Rams are just too tough to defend right now. Even a really talented Minnesota defense is going to have a tough time containing the pass of the Rams, and the great run by Todd Gurley. Look for the Rams defense to give Case Keenum a rude return back to playing his former team. Look for the Los Angeles Rams to win again. Bet the Los Angeles Rams +3 over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
