Fisher: 'We're staying with Case' as Rams QB

Sep 21, 2017 - 7:48 PM Los Angeles Rams quarterback Case Keenum was intercepted four times, including twice in the end zone during the fourth quarter of a 17-10 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday in London.

But Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters after the loss that he is sticking with Keenum as his starting quarterback despite a 3-4 record, leaving No. 1 overall draft pick Jared Goff on the sidelines waiting his shot.

"Quarterback is not the reason we lost," Fisher said after the game. "We're staying with Case. I'll make changes at receiver before I make a change at quarterback."

Keenum's first interception came off a tipped ball, which was corralled by Giants defensive back Landon Collins and returned 44 yards for New York's first touchdown.

It was the first of two interceptions by Collins. His second pick set up the Giants' go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Twice in the fourth quarter, Keenum was picked off the end zone by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, including on the Rams' final drive. Trailing by seven with one minute to play, Keenum marched the Rams to the Giants' 15-yard line. But on third down, Keenum appeared to have some miscommunication with receiver Brian Quick, resulting in Rodgers-Cromartie's clinching interception in the end zone.

Keenum finished 32 of 53 for 291 yards with a touchdown to Tavon Austin and the four interceptions. On the season, he has completed 62.5 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and four interceptions for the Rams, who have lost three straight games.

The Rams traded up in the draft to take Goff out of California but have gone with Keenum in their first season in Los Angeles.

Fisher said that won't change, but he will have the entire bye week to reconsider.
