According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Matt Cassel will be the Vikings’ starting quarterback for their final two regular season games.
Matt Cassel will indeed start the Vikings' last 2 games, barring injury, per sources. No reason to further evaluate Josh Freeman.

Cassel should have been starting since the Vikings beat the Steelers over in London earlier in the season. He’s been their best quarterback all season.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Matt Cassel stopped his backpedal, looked ahead and saw the Philadelphia Eagles' defense part down the middle the same the Minnesota Vikings' defense did in practice during the week on a designed run.
Cassel took off and was untouched on a 6-yard touchdown run to give Minnesota a surprising 24-lead in the third quarter, against Philadelphia, which had won...
The Minnesota Vikings were extremely short-handed Sundaynear the end of an increasingly lost season, playing without their top tworunning backs, top two tight ends and top three cornerbacks.On the others side were the streaking Philadelphia Eagles,winners of five straight games and owning the NFC's best road record at 5-1.So of course, Minnesota rallied together and beatPhiladelphia...
Matt Cassel will finish out the season as the starting quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings.
Cassel has been hot of late winning two of his last three starts and the Vikings are rewarding him by announcing him as the starter for the rest of the season.

The Eagles defense came crashing down to Earth in a big way Sunday at the most inopportune time. Image courtesy: Minnesota Vikings.
One had to believe that the Philadelphia Eagles defense that had held opponents to fewer than 21 points in each of their last eight games would eventually come back down to Earth.
The fact that Matt Cassel and the Adrian Peterson-less Minnesota Vikings...
The Vikings have operated more efficiently this season with Matt Cassel at quarterback, making his future brighter. The numbers show the difference he has made in the passing game.
Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead the injury-depleted Vikings to a 48-30 victory over Philadelphia on Sunday, snapping the Eagles' five-game winning streak.
With Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out, Matt Asiata rushed for the first three touchdowns of his career and Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes for 163 yards...
Greg Jennings and Matt Cassel have a strong on-field relationship, no doubt. Jennings wonders how the season might have changed with more of Cassel; Leslie Frazier prefers to look ahead.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Matt Cassel has the best chance to be back with the Vikings in 2014. Josh Freeman likely won’t be back and Christian Ponder will be placed on the trade block.

Chris Mortensen, NFL correspondent and seasoned teleprompter-reader, did his segment on ESPN Sunday morning and suggested that Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy could be a possibility for the vacant head coaching position at the University of Texas. It was a case of simply connecting the dots rather than actual hard reporting. And on the surface the speculation makes sense...
I hope, for the sake of your sanity and your fantasy squad, that you listened to Vegas, dismissed the Eagles’ defense, and rolled with the Jaguars’ defense last week.
Philadelphia’s recent strong defensive play evaporated in a smoke that suffocated a million fantasy seasons, as the Eagles’ vulnerable secondary was lit aflame by none other than Matt Cassel. The Eagles didn’t...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer The Minnesota Vikings play in a division that has been up for grabs all season long. They've had four losses - and a tie - by four points or less.
So many factors led to the Vikings (4-9-1) being on the outside looking in as the season winds down. But one appears to stick out more than any other.
Matt Cassel has grabbed...

After going nine straight games without allowing more than 21 points to an offense in a game, the Philly defense is picked clean by Matt Cassel and the Minnesota Vikings to the final count of 48-30.
Simply put, the Eagles could not stop the Vikes from driving the ball down the field on them. This is most surprising seeing as how the number one and two running backs for Minnesota...
The Vikings are getting some key players back on offense this week, including a rare Wednesday practice appearance by Adrian Peterson. Also, Matt Cassel will remain the starter, Jerome Simpson won’t pursue comments by an official, Greg Jennings jokingly tries to stir it up and more.
