Jake Locker and Matt Cassel might never leave the sidelines Thursday night with a pair of rookie quarterbacks possibly getting the chance to start. The Titans and Minnesota Vikings are just trying to wrap up the preseason safely, so they can turn their attention to the start of the regular season on Sept. 7.
There are a good amount of teams this season that will be looking to their quarterbacks to bring everything together to be on the winning path. Here is my list of quarterbacks that need a big 2014 season….
The Minnesota Vikings ride an impressive two-game winning streak into its Week 5 matchup against the lowly Tennessee Titans at Mall of America Field. The Titans boast one of the most explosive running backs in the NFL. But before last week’s big game, Chris Johnson has struggled to get yards behind an underperforming offensive line.
The Minnesota Vikings will face Tennessee Titans backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. The Vikings got linebacker Erin Henderson from a concussion Wednesday, his status for Sunday is still unknown. Chad Greenway was fined for his hit on Calvin Johnson and the Vikings want from the NFL why Josh Robinson was flagged for a personal foul penalty on a tackle.
Coach Mike Munchak says veteran Matt Hasselbeck will be the starting quarterback Sunday when the Titans visit Minnesota.
Jake Locker threw a 45-yard touchdown pass in his NFL debut, and the Tennessee Titans beat the Minnesota Vikings 14-3 Saturday night to make new coach Mike Munchak a winner in his preseason opener.
