Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel has been ruled out with a toe injury he suffered in the second quarter. Rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater replaced Cassel with 12:15 left in the first half. The injury occurred on a five-yard scramble with 14:47 left in the first half where Cassel was slow to get up. He was later carted into the locker room. Cassel finished the game 5 of 10 for 53 yards. Bridgewater went 3 of 5 for 46 yards in the first half, leading the Vikings to a field goal on his first drive.

Adam Aizer, Jamey Eisenberg, Pete Prisco and Dave Richard recap the action of the Vikings and the Saints.

The comeback had Emery’s fingerprints all over it — rookie Kyle Fuller made two Pro Bowl-caliber interceptions to turn the game around. Jared Allen forced a fumble. Less-heralded free agent acquisition...
NEW ORLEANS -- Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is scheduled to have a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday on his right groin muscle after being sidelined late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Saints.
The biggest moment in the Vikings’ 20-9 loss to the Saints at the Superdome on Sunday was a controversial penalty that killed the second half momentum the Vikings built. Down 13-9 with 14 seconds left in the third quarter, cornerback Captain Munnerlyn and safety Robert Blanton sacked Saints quarterback Drew Brees on 3rd and 13. Munnerlyn lifted Brees up off the ground and threw him down viciously, prompting Brees to jump up and shove Blanton in frustration. Munnerlyn was called for unnecessary roughness, extending the drive that ended on an 18-yard touchdown catch by wide receiver...
