The Vikings knew they were going to have a hard time running without Adrian Peterson in the lineup.
So maybe they just won’t bother.
The Vikings are up 7-3 on the Eagles after a 57-yard touchdown pass from Matt Cassel to Greg Jennings.
Cassel completed his first eight passes for 149 yards, a perfect start for the latest quarterback in their parade. He’s looked sharp and confident, which he needs to be with their best player standing on the sidelines.
