Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer just blew up Twitter.

In Tuesday’s press conference, Zimmer explained what he loves about quarterback Case Keenum, how he plays football and his willingness to takes risks.

“The thing I like the most about Case [Keenum] is he’s got big balls. He’s not afraid. He’s going to pull the trigger and he’s going to play like that, so, you know, that’s a good thing.”

Drew Mahowald presents the 14th edition of the Skol Scale following the Minnesota Vikings’ impressive win over the Los Angeles Rams and discusses the Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions.

This Minnesota Vikings team is for real — especially when playing inside the friendly confines of U.S. Bank Stadium.

Mike Zimmer and his defensive unit completely shut down the NFL’s highest-scoring offense, allowing exactly zero points after the game’s first drive. The 19-year-old head coach for Los Angeles scripted a beautiful first drive for the Rams, but Zimmer delivered knockout punch after knockout punch of in-game adjustments in the remaining 55 minutes of the game.

The deafening stadium full of over 66,000 fans rattled sophomore sensation Jared Goff and the Rams. There were delay-of-game penalties, false starts and unnecessary timeouts used by the visiting team on what seemed like every drive. Los Angeles, which averaged over 32 points per game, scored just seven in U.S. Bank Stadium.

At 8-2, there’s no suitable action other than to throw a party, so we channel Mr. Wordwide and do just that. In this episode of Bump & Run, I focus on appreciating what we have, no matter how it’ll end, and rejoicing in the Vikings being among the NFL’s elite.
