I will admit – before you read any further – that I didn’t watch a second of the Minnesota Vikings’ preseason game on Friday against the Indianapolis Colts. What you are about to read is simply an analysis based on what I’ve read and the box score. So, I apologize.
Sage Rosenfels was 10-for-13 for 91 yards, helping the Vikings score on their opening possession.
Tarvaris Jackson was 7-for-15 for 39 yards.
It would appear that Rosenfels has the edge, but there’s still three preseason games to play. Rosenfels has spent his entire career battling for a starting spot. This could be his best opportunity. But you have to wonder, at this point in his career, how he hasn’t won a job before.
