The Vikings looked to be in great shape with a 35-17 lead before Keenum threw balls that were picked off in the third quarter and early in the fourth by Swearinger.

Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris was just called up from the practice squad.

Still, Keenum completed 21 of 29 passes for 304 yards. Then he threw a ridiculously irresponsible interception, and then, on his next attempt, another.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins #8 of the Washington Redskins talks with quarterback Case Keenum #7 of the Minnesota Vikings after the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins 38-30 at FedExField on November 12, 2017 in Landover, Maryland.

Washington (4-4) played without six injured starters in a 17-14 win over the Seahawks.

Kai Forbath, though, kicked a 53-yard field goal with 7:45 left in the game to give the Vikings a safe 38-27 lead. The play was ruled out of bounds, but the Redskins challenged and replay showed Harris came down inbounds for the touchdown. However, they are going to continue to let backup QB Case Keenum run the offense in Week 10 against Washington. Five plays later, Keenum threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Diggs. The Vikings are not holding Keenum back in the passing game. His 36-yard touchdown catch on Sunday was the first scoring reception of his career. Crowder has been Washington's punt returner in every game since he entering the National Football League in 2015. Against the Vikings, the Redskins rushed for a paltry 81 yards.
