Redskins WR Maurice Harris makes circus TD grab against Vikings

Well, that's one way to get your first touchdown in the NFL.

With the Vikings trailing 10-7 early in the second quarter, Keenum hit Thielen over the middle on third-and-4 for 37 yards to the Washington 19.

The Vikings had another touchdown celebration before that on Sunday, which proved to be costly.

The second-year pro out of Cal was making his 2017 season debut with Washington against Minnesota on Sunday after being promoted from the practice squad.

Regardless, the Redskins have not given their fans much to cheer about at home, losing two out of their five games played so far this season.

Harris's 36-yard catch over Minnesota cornerback Trae Waynes, who couldn't have been in much better position, was even more remarkable when you consider that it was his first of the season.

LANDOVER, Md. - Case Keenum was heading for the game of his life, and then he stumbled.

Minnesota held on for a 38-30 win over Washington, with the Vikings offense putting on a clinic for most of the day.

Keenum threw a career-high four touchdown passes in the second and third quarters for a 35-17 lead.

One of the few bright spots in the contest was the play of safety D.J. Swearinger. With Teddy Bridgewater active for the first time since January 2016 after a devastating knee injury, Keenum was 21 of 29 for 304 yards and TD passes to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, David Morgan and Jarius Wright.
