Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, Wednesday, Sept. 24, which ends his season.

Week 12: vs Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Christian Ponder reminded everyone why the Vikings drafted Teddy Bridgewater this year, by flubbing Ponder's one start of the season at Green Bay in Week 5 (six sacks taken for -34 yards; 22/44 for 222 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown). Since then he's been back on the third team where he deserves to be, leaving Bridgewater to learn his craft as an NFL starter. Looking back to Week 5 won't tell us much about Bridgewater's prospects during Week 12. Bridgewater had a game to forget against the Bears last week, throwing 18/28 for 158 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -11 yards. He had a better game two contests ago, throwing 26/42 for 268 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (with two sacks taken for -16 yards). During that two week span, Cordarrelle Patterson (10 targets for 3/33/0 receiving) and Greg Jennings (12 for 7/80/0) lead the list of most-targeted receivers for Bridgewater. He's thrown his TDs to tight ends Rhett Ellison (five for 5/37/1) and Chase Ford (nine for 6/70/1) - there hasn't been much in the way of fantasy points to share around. The Packers' pass D is ranked 13th in the NFL averaging 238.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 15 passing scores given out vs. 14 interceptions (tied-third in the NFL) and 25 sacks (tied-11th) put up to date. Mark Sanchez managed 26/44 for 320 net yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions at Lambeau Field last week (three sacks taken for -26 yards), while Jay Cutler threw 23/40 for 256 net yards, one TD allowed vs. two interceptions thrown while taking three sacks for -18 yards. The Packers have the edge in this matchup.
