Mike Zimmer's response was loud, clear and simple when asked who his starting quarterback is this week... "Case Keenum."
Zimmer's decision means Keenum will play Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium against the same Los Angeles Rams team he started nine games for last season.

Despite Teddy Bridgewater's availability, Keenum has retained the starting spot after leading the Vikings to five straight victories.
Keenum has relieved Sam Bradford twice this season when a knee ailment knocked Bradford out of the starting slot in Weeks two and five.
The Vikings play the Rams Sunday before embarking on a three-week stretch of road games, including a short week next week before facing the Lions in the traditional Thanksgiving Thursday game in Detroit.
