Minnesota Vikings Hand The New York Giants First Win Of The Season

Freeman Signing Further Muddles Minnesota QB Group

Minnesota’s quarterback this weekend will be Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder, not Josh Freeman. If Ponder has healed from his broken rib, Coach Leslie Frazier said, he will return as the starter. If Ponder is still hurt, Cassel will keep the job. Beyond Sunday’s game against Carolina, well, there’s no guarantee for anyone. The Vikings were finalizing Freeman’s contract Monday, four days after the 25-year-old was cut by Tampa Bay. He didn’t make it in time for practice but was scheduled to arrive later, and Freeman and general manager Rick Spielman were scheduled to address reporters in an evening conference call.

Matt Cassel Leads The Minnesota Vikings To First Win Of The Season

Christian Ponder’s broken ribs forced the Minnesota Vikings to start backup quarterback Matt Cassel. The nine-year veteran led the team to a 34-27 victory. The Vikings finally have something to build on this season with the consistent and trustworthy quarterback.
