The Minnesota Vikings finally get their first (home)win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The final score 34-27 was in Wembley Stadium. The big story was Christian Ponder out with a broken rib and how Matt Cassel can step in to lead the team. Cassel answered that question fairly quick against a slumping Steelers team.

White Cassel trying to keep his job and Jennings showed more speed than I thought he had.
Can't Knock the Cassel
Oh man ... There was a moment in the game with about two minutes left where I was certain we were going to hit that 0-4 mark. I thought FOR SURE we were going to let another team drive it down our throats with little time left on the clock for us to respond, and we were going to hit that 0-4 mark. We were going to be well on our way to that top draft...

I don’t understand...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a very nasty habit of taking their opponents lightly and playing down to their competition. It led to a disappointing 2012 season and it has led to an embarrassing start to the 2013 season. Though the team did look better during the loss to the Chicago Bears last week, they have yet to start fast in any game in 2013.
The Steelers only leads that they’ve...
Vikings fans are excited about Matt Cassel starting, but there is no real indication that he will be the savior. Whether it’s just eyeing up his offseason or comparing his statistics last year to Christian Ponder’s, or even their numbers under pressure, nothing portends a dramatic improvement in quarterback play.
Leslie Frazier liked what he saw out of Matt Cassel, but he wasn’t willing to name him the starter after the Vikings’ first win. More time is needed for evaluation, Frazier indicated.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings are the home team this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Of course, the game is in London's Wembley Stadium, not the Metrodome. After last week's loss at home to the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota knows there is one possible difference being overseas in the United Kingdom.

In the city of Big Ben, it was Greg Jennings and Adrian Peterson who proved to be the biggest attractions.
That means Ben Roethlisberger is leaving London with the Pittsburgh Steelers off to their worst start since 1968 - and with only the faintest of hopes of making the playoffs.
Jennings made two touchdown catches, Peterson ran for two scores and the Vikings' defense made...

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Matt Cassel will start over Christian Ponder this Sunday as the Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers battle it out in London. Possible reasons for the change can be found in Ponders performance the past couple days along with the possible rib problems hindering him from practice...
The Vikings announced that Matt Cassel will get the start at quarterback this week as Christian Ponder sits out after breaking his ribs last week.
No one had any idea how serious Ponder’s injury was until today. He ended up telling TwinCities.com that he doesn’t have any issues with the throwing the football, but there are some concerns with his rib protruding into his...
Week 5 on the fantasy football waiver wire isn’t what I’d call exciting. You have a couple of usual suspects when it comes to the waiver wire but you never know. A roll of the dice on some of these names could pay off in big dividends if you are looking for bye week relief.
