The Vikings will start Matt Cassel Week 1, according to FOX's Jay Glazer.
Cassel started all three preseason games, looking sharp while going 26-of-39 (66.6 percent) for 367 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Teddy Bridgewater was also solid in his three appearances, going 26-of-40 for 266 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. The close battle predictably goes to the veteran, as Cassel was always expected to be a bridge while the first-round rookie develops a little bit. Cassel, a low-end QB2 for now with a dash of upside thanks to Norv Turner's vertical scheme, will not have a long leash. Aug 25 - 9:43 AM
