The running back led all Minnesota rushers this week with 18 carries for 113 yards and one 29-yard touchdown.

The Vikings (5-2) held the Ravens to 208 total yards and Kai Forbath kicked six field goals, including two of at least 50 yards.

On Sunday, Minnesota grabbed its third straight win with a 24-16 victory over Baltimore, but it was the first time in awhile that Keenum looked and performed like a backup. The defensive end became the sixth player to record a sack in each of his team's first seven games to start the season since the sack became an official statistic in 1982.

"I don't know. We haven't really figured out anything but I'm just going to stay positive because you can't do anything when you get negative", he said.

This season has not exactly gone according to plan for Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray. But ankle surgery caused him to miss all of the offseason workouts and training camp and most of the preseason as well, putting him behind Dalvin Cook and Jerick McKinnon on the depth chart.

"On the edge" is where Forbath lives these days.

Neither team found the end zone in the first half, with Minnesota up 9-6 at halftime via a trio of Forbath field goals, answered by two Tucker field goals for the Ravens.

"Nothing I'm anxious about", Forbath said.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh walks off the field after an NFL football game against the Minnesota Vikings, Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, in Minneapolis. Wallace was hit hard after catching a pass across the middle, losing his helmet and fumbling in the process.

The 31-year-old Wallace was then put through "concussion protocol" and could not return to the game.

"Once he went out we weren't able to really take any deep shots over the top of them for whatever reason, whether it was personnel or what they were giving us up front", Flacco said. The turnover was negated when the Vikings were flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play. Run-stopping Ravens DT Brandon Williams, who had missed the previous four games due to injury, tackled Vikings RB Latavius Murray for a 3-yard loss on Minnesota's first run of the game.
