Eden Prairie, MN (November 30, 2017) – Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of November.
Keenum finished the month 69-of-97 (71.1%) for 866 yards with seven touchdowns and two interceptions for a passer rating of 114.0 while being sacked just twice. The Houston grad also added 39 yards and a touchdown via 13 rushes. His eight total touchdowns during the month is a new career-high, surpassing his previous high in a single month of seven, despite only playing in three games due to the team’s bye week.
The Abilene, Texas, native ranked third in the NFL during the month with a 71.1 completion percentage and his 866 passing yards ranked 11th overall and second among quarterbacks that played only three games. The fifth-year veteran threw for at least 280 yards and one touchdown in each game and helped the Vikings offense surpass 400-plus yards of offense each week.
The award marks the first time that Keenum has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Month. He is the second Viking to win Player of the Month honors this season, joining defensive end Everson Griffen who won the defensive award in October, marking the fourth time in Vikings history that the team has won back-to-back player of the month awards (Cris Carter/John Randle, 1999; Jake Reed/John Randle, 1997; Jack Del Rio/Anthony Parker, 1994).
