ESPN comments:
 

There's no bigger breakthrough for the 2017 Vikings than Case Keenum. Even after Sunday's loss to the Panthers, Keenum still ranks third leaguewide in Total QBR and has led Minnesota to an 8-3 record in his starts. He entered the season with a career 9-15 record as a starter.

The biggest risers of the week are the Kansas City Cheifts & Detroit Lions, jumping five spots each. The biggest fall of the week belongs to the New York Jets, dropping eight spots from #20 to #28.

The Vikings face the Bengals this Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
