Matt Cassel was polished. Teddy Bridgewater was poised. The Minnesota Vikings have yet to pick a starting quarterback, but their passing game has sure been productive in the preseason.
Bridgewater gave the giddy fans chanting his first name a pair of go-ahead touchdown throws to cheer for in the fourth quarter, propelling the Vikings past the Arizona Cardinals 30-28 on Saturday night.
Coach Mike Zimmer said he hasn't reached the date he's had in mind for a decision.
Cassel has taken the majority of the turns with the first-team offense, and the veteran has done nothing but solidify his status, the story said. Bridgewater at least gave Zimmer more to think about with his second-half performance, albeit against backups and guys bound to be cut in a couple of weeks.
