Vikings up 17-9 over Eagles at halftime

Matt Cassel, Greg Jennings AP

If the Vikings keep playing this way, some will be fooled into thinking they don’t need Adrian Peterson and they already have a quarterback.

Playing without Peterson (and backup Toby Gerhart), the Vikings are up 17-9 on the Eagles after a Matt Asiata’s first career touchdown run.

The Vikings aren’t exactly running well, but they’re gnawing away at the clock thanks to an efficient half by quarterback Matt Cassel.

They’ve had three drives of at least 10 plays, not the kind of grinding you’d expect from a team so thin in the backfield.

Cassel is 14-of-20 passing for 202 yards and a touchdown in the first half, an impressive performance against any team.

But the fact the Vikings have run 38 plays so far has the Eagles looking gassed.

    Same story by the Eagles every season. Flash in the pan during regular season, crumble in Playoffs. Forever Zero Superbowls. #Historydontlie

    Gotta hand it to the Vikings offense. Their O line is the big reason they’re winning, they are giving Cassel tons of time.
