Vikings Pull Sam Bradford For Case Keenum Before Halftime

Bradford didn’t look right all evening

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports

At the start of this game, the Minnesota Vikings thought they had their starting quarterback in the fold. They did. . .but, unfortunately, he was largely ineffective and has been replaced.

Just before the end of the first half, the Vikings pulled Sam Bradford in favor of Case Keenum, due in large part to Bradford just not looking right all evening.

Bradford misfired on his first three passes of the evening, and then took an awful sack in the end zone by Leonard Floyd for a safety to open the scoring. Bradford held onto the ball for over five seconds on the play, and was then sacked three more times before the Vikings took him out.

Keenum has started the Vikings’ previous three games, and it looks like he’s going to go the rest of the way in this one as well. However, if something should happen to Keenum, the Vikings don’t have another quarterback active, as Kyle Sloter was deactivated prior to tonight’s game.

Once again, the Vikings have made a quarterback change, replacing Sam Bradford with Case Keenum. Minnesota will get the ball to start the second half.
