It’s his first monthly award of any kind in the NFL

Case Keenum keeps leading the Minnesota Vikings to victories, and now he’s scored a personal victory for himself.

Just a few moments ago, Keenum was announced as the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for the month of November.

The fact that Keenum won this award for November is made a bit more impressive by the fact that the Vikings only had three games in the month for him to compile stats in due to the Vikings’ bye week. In those three games, Keenum completed 69-of-97 pass attempts (71.1%) for 866 yards, and put up seven touchdown passes to just two interceptions. He also had 13 rushing attempts for 39 yards and another score. The Vikings were 3-0 in the month of November, scoring victories over the Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Rams, and Detroit Lions.

Keenum is the fifth quarterback in team history to win a Player of the Month Award. He joins Warren Moon (1995), Randall Cunningham (1998), Daunte Culpepper (2003 & 2004) and Brett Favre (2009) in that group. This is also the first monthly award of any sort that Keenum has won in his NFL career.

Congratulations to Case Keenum on being named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for the month of November. Hopefully December (and January) hold even bigger things for #7.
