MINNEAPOLIS — In an unexpected battle of the backups, Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum out-dueled Green Bay’s Brett Hundley as the Vikings beat the Packers 23-10 on Sunday, forging a tie atop the NFC North standings.
Hundley, a third-year pro, was pressed into duty in the first quarter after Packers starter Aaron Rodgers was lost for the game, and possibly for the season, with a broken collarbone.
Keenum, making his fourth start in place of the injured Sam Bradford, was 24-of-38 passing for 239 yards, with a touchdown and an interception as the Vikings improved to 4-2.
Hundley, hounded by the Vikings defense for much of the day, finished 18 of 33 for 157 yards, with a touchdown and three interceptions. Hundley was sacked four times as the Packers fell to 4-2.
Kai Forbath had three field goals for Minnesota.
