On Saturday, Maurice Harris was promoted from the Redskins' practice squad to their active roster.

Keenum threw a career-high four touchdown passes in the second and third quarters for a 35-17 lead. He was 26 of 45 for 327 yards and one interception for Washington (4-5). The Vikings are not holding Keenum back in the passing game.

On the day the former SC product produced three tackles and two pass defenses to go with the two interceptions.

That test would be the 15th ballistic missile test since Trump took office, and the first since September. Trump made the comment on Twitter after accusing the North Korean tyrant of calling him "old".

One of the few bright spots in the contest was the play of safety D.J. Swearinger. The second one was returned 31 yards to the Minnesota 2, leading to a 2-yard run by Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins that cut the defecit to 35-27 with 14:47 left in the game. The play was ruled out of bounds, but the Redskins challenged and replay showed Harris came down inbounds for the touchdown.

Redskins: Visit the New Orleans Saints on Sunday in a game they now badly need to win given their upcoming schedule. Kyle Rudolph caught a touchdown pass, and the offense celebrated with a game of "Duck, Duck Gray Duck" in the end zone. Keenum should not struggle too bad against Washington, but he will probably not have a big game Sunday, either.

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum almost let Washington back into the game. The call was reversed, resulting in a 36-yard touchdown catch that you'll see on highlight reels for a while. Keenum passed to tight end David Morgan for a 1-yard touchdown and the Vikings' lead was 11. Vikings K Kai Forbath hit his 16th straight field goal. LB Will Compton left with a foot injury and will have an MRI.
