Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs DAL (18 / 37 / 206 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum didnÕt play particularly well but was also playing with backups at several key positions. His top receiver was out along with a couple of injured linemen. The interception on their first possession almost set the tone for what was to come in this game. Case put up a fight in the first half as he led the team to ten points on offense. He threw a short touchdown in the redzone in the 2nd quarter that kept the score relatively close going into halftime. However, the 2nd half was abysmal for the entire Washington offense. Many of their drives ended with a punt due to penalties and bad execution. CaseÕs completion percentage was just below 50% and he only managed two field goals in the second half. It was a fitting end to a season full of poor play and turmoil.
2019 Week 16 vs NYG (16 / 22 / 158 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 1 / 1 rush)
Case Keenum had to fill in for Dwayne Haskins as he was knocked from the game due to injury. His day got off to a shaky start punting quickly on his first possession. On his following possession he led the team on a touchdown drive. It was capped off by touchdown in the back of the endzone to Steven Sims. He saved his most impressive drive for last as he marched the offense ninety-nine yards for a game tying touchdown. His twenty-yard pass to get Washington out of the endzone got the drive started. He converted two third downs as well. On first and goal, Case punched it in himself after everyone was covered on the play. It was a gutsy play as he almost fumbled trying to squeeze in between two defenders for the score. Case made some clutch throws and helped Washington make a comeback.
2019 Week 8 vs MIN (12 / 16 / 130 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had a good start to this game until the untimely turnover. He led the offense to three first downs and completed his first three passes before giving the ball back to Minnesota. Case had the Redskins in scoring position twice but only came away with field goals. Play-action passing, and the run game worked surprisingly well against the Vikings defense. However, Case only came away with two field goals and exited the game at halftime due to concussion. Its unfortunate Case went down because this was the best the offense had looked in weeks.
2019 Week 7 vs SF (9 / 12 / 77 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum was in extreme game manager mode today with the harsh weather conditions. Between the heavy rain and Bill Callahan's emphasis to "establish the run" Case only attempted twelve passes on the day. He didn't even cross the hundred-yard mark as each of his nine completions were within ten yards. Ball security was even more important in today's game as the weather conditions were extremely sloppy. Therefore, Case was reluctant to take any chances and the play calling was just as conservative. He got the Washington offense in scoring position on the opening, but the thirty-nine-yard field goal was missed.
2019 Week 6 vs MIA (13 / 25 / 166 / 2 / 0 pass, 4 / 10 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum did just well enough to win against the Dolphins. With the coaching change, came a differing philosophy as the offense went to a more run-oriented unit. This kept the chance for turnovers to a minimum although Case did have a fumble in this game. Nonetheless it was recovered by Washington. Case connected on less than 50% of his attempts today but he did manage to throw two touchdowns. His 2nd touchdown was the easiest pass he had all day on a streak upfield for thirty-yard touchdown. Case wasn't sharp at all in this game but playing against a team that is arguable worse than Washington he had room for error.
2019 Week 4 vs NYG (6 / 11 / 37 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had his worst start to a game this season and it ended with him being replaced. He was wildly inaccurate and continued his bad decision making from the previous game. On the third play of the game he threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown. He also missed Trey Quinn for a potential touchdown on a seam route deep downfield. With a little under 7 minutes left in the second quarter he was replaced by Dwayne Haskins.
2019 Week 2 vs DAL (26 / 37 / 221 / 2 / 0 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum played a steady game although it resulted in a loss. The offense started slow with a few 3-and-out possessions, but Case finally put together a scoring drive at the end of the first quarter. The touchdown drive was run dominated with eight runs and two passes. To cap off the drive, Case handed the ball off on the goal line and Washington was on the board to start the second quarter. After halftime, Case orchestrated an eleven-play drive that ended with a twelve-yard pass on a hook route where the receiver did most of the work. Case didn't have many possessions to do much damage in the second half, but he did manage one more scoring drive as the game was mostly already decided. The defense struggled to get off the field, so the offense was stalled. Case took care of the ball and made plays, but not enough to get a win.
2019 Week 1 vs PHI (30 / 44 / 380 / 3 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Case Keenum had a perfect start to this game, literally. He demonstrated great command of the offense and established a rhythm to offset the Eagles pressure. The opening drive touchdown pass may have been the result of poor tackling as Case threw a quick out to Vernon Davis. The bad tackling turned into a forty-eight yard touchdown. The most impressive part of Case's first half performance is that they weren't running the ball well. The short passing game opened up a few deep shots as Case connected with Terry McLaurin on a deep post to record his 2nd touchdown of the first half. Case rung up 20 twenty points for the Washington offense in the first half and looked great. The second half was a different story. The Washington offense had only managed ten plays and thirty yards as it got late into the 2nd half. A few three and outs to go along with long drives by the Eagles left Washington on the sidelines a ton. Case managed one late garbage time touchdown but the game had already been decided. Case couldn't capitalize on the minimal opportunities in the second half as the Eagles were rallying. Case did overthrow a potential touchdown in the third quarter that could have been a huge momentum booster if he connects. Nonetheless, the offense was shut down in the second half and Case's solid game was cut short.
Latest NewsLions | Detroit may look at Case Keenum (Sat Jan 11, 09:08 PM) - Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Case Keenum may receive interest from the Detroit Lions this offseason, in the opinion of the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett. The Lions showed interest in Keenum last offseason. Our View: The Lions want veteran insurance behind Matthew Stafford. In 2019, Stafford was playing at a high level before injuring his back and missing the final eight games of the season. Jeff Driskel and David Blough didn't make much of an impact for the Lions but a guy like Keenum could keep things afloat while Stafford is banged up. Of course, everyone wants Stafford to be healthy but the need to be ready in case he gets hurt again.
