Vikings stick with Case Keenum as starting QB vs. Rams

Case Keenum is still the Vikings’ starter.

Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer announced Wednesday the team will stick with the journeyman quarterback under center when the Viking take on the Rams in Week 11.

Triumph: The Jaguars already have their most wins in a season since 2010, when they went 8-8. The defense has been dominant, Leonard Fournette has impressed and Blake Bortles has done just enough. The team would have to go completely off the rails for this season to be anything less than a triumph for Sacksonville.

Triumph: Two of Carolina’s three losses are to the 9-1 Eagles and 8-2 Saints. The Panthers also have rushed for 200 yards and multiple scores in back-to-back games, and if that type of success on the ground continues, the sky could be the limit for Carolina.

The league’s senior director of football communications, Randall Liu, announced four changes to the NFL schedule for Weeks 12 and 13. On Sunday, Nov. 26, the Saints-Rams game will be moved to 4:25 PM ET and televised on CBS with the Titans-Colts matchup moved to Fox at 1 p.m. ET.

On Sunday Dec. 3, an NFC South rivalry game between the Panthers and Saints is being moved to 4:25 PM ET on Fox with the Broncos-Dolphins also flexed to Fox at 1 p.m. ET.

There are no changes to Sunday Night Football for Weeks 12 and 13, with Packers-Steelers and Eagles-Seahawks on tap for primetime in those respective weeks.

With Devonta Freeman sidelined Monday night, Tevin Coleman played 42 snaps and delivered 20 carries for 43 yards and one touchdown while also hauling in one of two targets for 15 yards. The efficiency wasn’t good — albeit against a tough Seattle defense — but Coleman saw enough volume to finish the week as a top-25 fantasy back. If Freeman returns against Tampa Bay this week, Coleman will revert back to fringe flex territory. If Freeman is out, Coleman will be a back-end RB1 and should be locked into lineups.
