The Minnesota Vikings were blown out by the New England Patriots 30-7 Sunday in the team’s home opener at TCF Bank Stadium. The Vikings scored first, but surrendered 30 straight points to lose. There is nothing positive to say about the game. Every aspect of the game was bad for the Vikings.
Letting the rookie quarterbacks play and keeping the starters on the sideline may have been the best decisions Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt made all night.
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.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has named veteran Matt Cassel as the team’s starting quarterback for the season opener against the St. Louis Rams. Zimmer made the announcement Monday, though it has long been known that Cassel has been the choice over rookie Teddy Bridgewater.
Matt Cassel made a winning return to Arrowhead Stadium, even if it was just a preseason game. The quarterback who was booed, benched and eventually released two years ago by the Chiefs, threw for 152 yards and a touchdown Saturday night, leading the Minnesota Vikings to a 30-12 win over a scuffling Kansas City team dealing with a rash of injuries and suspensions.
The crowd at Minnesota’s preseason games has given Teddy Bridgewater quite the welcome. Anthony Barr is the one more likely to hear those cheers from Vikings fans throughout his rookie year.

Teddy Bridgewater gave the giddy fans chanting his first name a pair of go-ahead touchdown throws to cheer for in the fourth quarter, giving the Minnesota Vikings a 30-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night. Bridgewater floated a back-shoulder fade pass from 2 yards out to Rodney Smith with 18 seconds remaining for the lead, after the Cardinals had gone ahead on a bizarre fourth-down score about a minute earlier.
Matt Cassel was sharp from the start, giving Teddy Bridgewater a model touchdown drive to watch. That’s the early snapshot of Minnesota’s starting quarterback competition.
Sure, this is only the preseason. Still, Teddy Bridgewater’s first game with the Minnesota Vikings is kind of a big deal.
It’s hard to blame football players and fans if they’re a little excited and hungry this week. After about two weeks of training camp at Minnesota State University, Mankato, the Vikings will take the trip up Highway 169 back to the Twin Cities for their first preseason game Friday night.
Christian Ponder’s descent from first-round draft pick to third-string quarterback has been formalized, with the release of the first depth chart of the season by the Minnesota Vikings. After losing the starting job to Matt Cassel last year and watching the team draft Teddy Bridgewater, Ponder entered the final year of his rookie contract in lame-duck mode, realizing the likelihood he’ll soon be playing elsewhere.
Captain Munnerlyn started his first training camp with the Minnesota Vikings away from the action and on the sideline, placed on the physically unable to perform list so he could work his way through a minor hamstring injury.
