Minnesota Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes (26) celebrates after intercepting a pass during the second half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears, Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017, in Minneapolis. Bradford has not played since a dominant performance of week 1 in a Monday night win over the Saints while Keenum is 1-2 as a starter in his absence. It seemed worth watching, however, thanks to the fact that rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was getting his first National Football League start and because Sam Bradford was finally back in action after needing three weeks off due to a knee injury.
Bradford participated in a limited capacity heading into the Vikings' second straight NFC North matchup after missing two weeks of practice.
On @mtrubisky10's first career pass.
And then things got worse.
On the first sack, which resulted in a safety for Chicago, the Vikings were backed up at their own 5-yard line after being slapped with offensive holding on a punt return. It looks like he may have some rust to shake off before he's back to that player again.
The Mitch Trubisky era has begun with the best two-point conversion play we've seen in a long time.
It was at that point that common sense should have caused Zimmer to put Keenum in the game.
The Minnesota Vikings need to know about their starting quarterback as well.
Nonetheless, Bradford continued to play. From the very beginning Bradford did not look right and was benched before the half was over, a decision that probably should have come sooner.
The Bears are excited and a bit anxious about starting their new Rookie QB Mitch Trubisky.
The touchdown, a 13-yarder to Kyle Rudolph on a scramble drill to give the Vikings a 10-2 lead, culminated a drive lasting almost half of the third quarter after Minnesota possessed it for just 12:49 in the first half.
Keenum outpassed Bradford in the first drive of the second half, throwing for 68 of the Vikings' 75 yards on the series.
Zach Miller caught 3-of-6 targets for 39 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 5 loss to the Vikings.
"Whether it's a turnover, steal, a first down - whatever it is you just want to make an impact throughout the game to kind of help those guys on offense and defense", Cunningham said.
The decision to start him is not what was in question. "Those big blocks are how you get big plays like that". He opened the second half with a 13-yard strike to tight end Kyle Rudolph for Minnesota's first touchdown, but the Bears took advantage of a special teams blunder the following drive to strike back. It was picked off by the Vikings' Harrison Smith already in field-goal range.
Keenum rejuvenated the Vikings' offense.
Is that ideal? No.
