Vikings rule Bradford out vs Bucs; Keenum to start again

QB Jameis Winston says he’s focused on the deep-ball chances to De Sean Jackson he missed in the opener “We left a lot out there.”

QB Jameis Winston says he’s focused on the deep-ball chances to De Sean Jackson he missed in the opener “We left a lot out there.”

When the Buccaneers head into their game in Minnesota, the Vikings will be looking to improve drastically following a 26-9 loss in Pittsburgh.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum hits wide receiver Stefon Diggs deep for a 47-yard gain. View the best game highlights from the Vikings 34-17 win over the Buccaneers. Meanwhile, the offense couldn't sustain drives and was 1 of 6 on third downs.

Keenum has beaten the Bucs the last two times he faced them - though he was playing for the Rams at the time.

Along with Adam Thielen (98 yards on Sunday), the Vikings have a pretty underrated receiving core, and an unexpected one when you consider Thielen was undrafted and Diggs was a fifth-round pick. Diggs caught the ball over Smith and spun out of a tackle to break free for a 59-yard touchdown.

Jarius Wright added a touchdown catch for the Vikings.

Case Keenum's reputation preceded him against Tampa Bay.

With widespread rebuke around the league toward President Donald Trump for his obscene criticism of the kneeling by players during the national anthem in protest of social injustice, Evans and Jackson each took a knee with a hand on their heart in front of the bench as the "Star Spangled Banner" played.

Nobody was kneeling on the Vikings sideline, but many players also stood arm in arm, with owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf and general manager Rick Spielman joining them.

The Bucs' stumble is much like previous year, when Tampa Bay won an impressive opener against Atlanta, only to take a 40-7 loss at Arizona on the road, with multiple injuries that carried into the rest of the seasn. The Buccaneers entered the game missing a starter from every unit of the defense and dealt with injuries to defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (ankle) and safety T.J. Ward (hip) in the second half. Minnesota's big-play receiver ran past CB Vernon Hargreaves down the left sideline and made a sliding 45-yard catch to the Bucs' 20.
