Cassel leads Vikings to only touchdown in preseason game
Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - It's only one preseason game, and in Matt Cassel's case, one drive.
But the veteran showed a glimpse of why Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer might be able to be patient with rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Bridgewater played okay in his first action, but Cassel completed 5 of 6 passes for 62 yards, and led the purple to its only touchdown of the game on the opening drive.
It's what the veteran expected of himself.
Matt Cassel\Last Night: 5-6, 62 yds: “Well, I think that just the offensive scheme and how it was set up tonight. It worked well and we have guys out there that can make plays. Cordarelle made a few great catches out there, Greg had one, Kyle Rudolph, Matt Asiata had one. So again, that's what this offense is about. It's about going through your reads and that's what we wanted to accomplish.”
