Keenum helped the team’s offense surpass 400-plus yards of offense each week – while being sacked only twice.

It’s the first time Keenum has won the award. He’s the second Viking this year to receive a player of the month award, with defensive end Everson Griffen winning the defensive award for October.

It’s the fourth time in Vikings’ history where the team won back-to-back player of the month awards.
