The Vikings didn’t go public with their choice for a starting quarterback until the start of Sunday’s game against the Titans, so it’s no great surprise that coach Mike Zimmer wasn’t making a call for next week in the wake of their 25-16 victory.
The Vikings were down 10-0 at the half on Sunday, but rallied in the final 30 minutes behind a pair of defensive scores and four Blair Walsh field goals. Shaun Hill went 18-of-33 for 236 yards on the way to the win, earning him a good review from Zimmer if not another game as the starter ahead of Sam Bradford.
“I thought Shaun did well,” Zimmer said. “One of the things I told him going into the ball game was you don’t have to be anybody else. You just have to yourself and that is good enough to win. You take care of the football, make the right plays and I thought he did good. Sam has done a nice job getting ready as well. We will take it one week at a time and see where it takes us.”
Zimmer said he’ll speak with the coaching staff on Monday as the team works toward a quarterback decision for their first home game at U.S. Bank Stadium against the Packers next Sunday night.
