Keenum keeps Vikings looking for rest in final first round

Quarterback Case Keenum sent in a touchdown pass, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 16-0 and recorded their first shutout win in nearly 25 years.

For the Vikings it was their first shutout since they beat the Detroit Lions 13-0 on December 5, 1993. It was the first shutout on the Packers (7-8) since November 14, 1971.

The victory allows the Vikings (12-3), who had already secured the title of the North Division of the National Conference, to maintain their chances of getting a rest in the first round.

The Minnesota team can secure a break if the Carolina Panthers lose or draw on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Keenum found his receiver Stefon Diggs with a four-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the game.

The quarterback completed 14 of 25 passes for 139 yards with a scoring pass.

The Packers (7-8), already eliminated from the final-phase dispute, lost to quarterback Brett Hundley, who completed 17 of 40 for 130 yards and two touchdown passes.
