Matt Cassel stepped on the platform, grasped the podium with both hands, looked around and grinned.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson surpassed the 10,000 yard rushing plateau. He is the 28th player in league history and third quickest to do so. He is grateful for his God-given talent and blessed to have had the players around him to make it happen.

Politicians, Vikings executives and possibly a few notable former players will be on hand at the groundbreaking ceremony for the team’s new, $1 billion stadium.

NFL teams talk about the season being in four quarters. The league begins that final quarter this week. The Minnesota Vikings travel to M&T Bank Stadium to take on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday in their Week 13 game. The Ravens are led on offense by quarterback Joe Flacco, but wide receiver Torrey Smith is the player to watch. The defense is led by veteran nose tackle Haloti Ngata.
After years of controversy and public debate, Tuesday marks the beginning of the end for the Metrodome. State officials and the Minnesota Vikings will break ground for a new NFL football stadium.
Another week has brought another quarterback quandary for the Minnesota Vikings. Matt Cassel played well enough in relief of Christian Ponder to take over the job. Ponder left Sunday’s win over Chicago with a concussion.
Vikings rally to win!
