Vikings QB Case Keenum celebrates with the mannequin challenge

Jan 14, 2018, 4:26 PM

Leave it to the Minnesota Vikings, with their unheralded quarterback Case Keenum squaring off opposite New Orleans Pro Bowler Drew Brees, to hold a 17-0 halftime lead on the Saints.

A backup to begin the season, Keenum has seen his stock rise rapidly in leading the upstart Vikings this year.

And while Minnesota’s 13-3 regular season would lend evidence that Keenum just might be decent, if not pretty good, little did we know that Keenum was this darn good at celebrating touchdowns.

After Vikings running back Latavius Murray scored on a one-year rush with 10 minutes to play before halftime, Keenum was committing 110 percent to pulling off a mannequin challenge with his teammates.

Or was it a game of freeze tag?

Keenum took a high five from a teammate and froze in the end zone while pumping his fist. Two other Minnesota players froze as well, but they weren’t holding the posture for quite as long.

The quarterback used up about all the time he could before the special teams unit kicked the extra point.
