Zimmer names Keenum start ... for next game

(TSX / STATS) -- EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- People confused that Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer won't come out and name Case Keenum as his starting quarterback for the rest of the season just don't get it.

Keenum is playing the best football of his life. Perhaps that's because he's playing like he has to fight, claw and scratch to win the job back every single week.

Whatever's going on, it ain't broke and Zimmer ain't fixing it. The Vikings are riding a seven-game winning streak and are 9-2 after all but wrapping up their second NFC North title in three years with a 30-23 win at Detroit on Thanksgiving. Detroit fell to 6-4, three games out with five to play, while the Packers are four out and becoming more unlikely to bring quarterback Aaron Rodgers back this season.
