Insider Only Matt Cassel to start at QB vs Steelers on Sunday

Vikings starter Christian Ponder has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs the Steelers. Matt Cassel will start.
Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley should have a positive effect on the team for at least one week in being able to provide a detailed scouting report on Cassel who had a career year under Haley in 2010 throwing for 27 touchdowns.
The Steelers also have a familiarity with Cassel in that they’ve faced him three times since 2008, including last season.

In three starts vs the Steelers, Cassel is 45 of 95 for 571 yards and 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Cassel has been sacked 12 times in those three starts.
