Matt Cassel has broken foot, which means it’s Teddy Time

By Darin Gantt The Vikings’ starting quarterback job is Teddy Bridgewater’s for the forseeable future. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters after the game that starter Matt Cassel has several broken bones in his foot, which means the job is Bridgewater’s by default. Asked if Bridgewater was his starter moving forward, Zimmer replied: “That […]

Saints hang on to beat Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings

By Darin Gantt Drew Brees was hot early, but got heated late. And that was enough to get the Saints their first win of the season, 20-7 over the Vikings. Brees was surgical on the first two drives, leading the Saints to quick touchdowns. But the Vikings defense decided to show up after that, […]

Panthers dominate Vikings 35-10

By Darin Gantt

A week ago, if you’d have suggested to many Panthers fans that Derek Anderson would have replaced Cam Newton, some of them (OK, the insane ones) might have taken you up on it.

Harrison Smith doubtful to return with foot injury

By Darin Gantt

The only good news for the Vikings today is that they’re one week closer to seeing if Josh Freeman can play.

Safety Harrison Smith was hauled off the field with a foot injury, and […]

Favre puts to rest speculation that he’ll return

By Mike Florio

If we told you last week that a former Jets quarterback would on October 10 unretire again and wear No. 4 in New York, most would have guessed Brett Favre over David Garrard.

But it was Garrard, not Favre, who returned to the NFL on Favre’s 44th birthday. And Favre says he […]

Report: Freeman eventually will start for Vikings

By Mike Florio

It looked obvious when the Vikings signed quarterback Josh Freeman. Then, when the Vikings started talking about the situation, it became less obvious.

Now, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports says it’s inevitable.

Freeman eventually will start for the Vikings, at some point this year.

It makes sense. If the Vikings want to […]

Jordy Nelson says Packers are still the favorites to win the NFC North

By Mike Florio

The Packers are 2-2. The Bears are 4-2. The Lions are 3-2. The Vikings, despite being 1-3, have Adrian Peterson and now Josh Freeman.

So who’s the favorite to win the division?

“I would have to say us,” receiver Jordy Nelson recently told Eric Kuselias of NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk. “I know […]
