Monday November 16th, 2015

Case Keenum will start at quarterback for the Rams next week against the Ravens instead of Nick Foles, head coach Jeff Fisher announced Monday.

The decision to bench Foles comes after he completed just 17 of 36 passes for 200 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday’s loss to the Bears

In nine games this season, Foles has completed a career-worst 56.6% of his passes, and has thrown seven touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Rams are 4–5 this season, trailing the 7–2 Cardinals in the NFC West and behind the Packers and Falcons (both 6–3) in the wild card race. 

Keenum has started 10 games in his NFL career, all with the Texans, and has a 2–8 record. He has completed 55.2% of his passes in his career with 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
