Matt Cassel to start again Saturday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel will make his third straight preseason start Saturday at Kansas City, coach Mike Zimmer told reporters. The paper said it would be "extremely surprising" if Cassel doesn't start the regular-season opener Sept. 7 at St. Louis.

Cassel, who's competing with rookie Teddy Bridgewater, hit 12 of 16 throws for 153 yards and a touchdown and added 30 rushing yards in last Saturday's win over Arizona.

Matt Cassel hooks up on long TD pass vs. Cardinals
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel went 12 of 16 for 153 passing yards and one touchdown while also adding 30 rushing yards on three carries in his team's 30-28 preseason win over the Cardinals Saturday.

Cassel foreshadowed the touchdown on the first offensive play, connecting with tight end Kyle Rudolph on a 17-yard pass. Two drives later, he hit Rudolph down the deep let side for a 51-yard touchdown. Cassel put his team in field-goal position in three of his other four drives, with the kicker nailing two of his chances. Cassel seems like a good bet to open the season as the starter, despite rookie Teddy Bridgewater's late-game heroics in Saturday's win.

Teddy Bridgewater: 'I have been overthinking'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who seems to be losing ground in the quarterback battle with Matt Cassel, believes he needs to lessen the mental load on the field as he tries to learn the nuances of his offense and opposing defenses.

"Basically, I have to stop overthinking," Bridgewater told NFL.com. "I haven't been pressing, but I have been overthinking."

Mike Zimmer, who has named Cassel the starter for the second preseason game Saturday night against Arizona, concurs.

"He's got so much going on in his mind right now that I just want him to play," Zimmer told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. "That's what I told him ... and that's what I'm going to tell him before the ballgame. Just go play. You've been doing this since you were 5 years old. Go play and have some fun."

Matt Cassel limited to one series in preseason opener
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel got the start and enjoyed and was limited to one series of work with the first-team offense Friday against the Raiders.

Cassel led his team to a 10-play, 70-yard drive, which was capped by a 1-yard touchdown run from Matt Asiata. He completed 5 of 6 passes for 62 yards before being replaced by Teddy Bridgewater with 6:22 left in the first quarter.
