Josh Freeman's time as the Minnesota Vikings' top quarterback was short-lived, at least in the short term, as Freeman might have a concussion and will miss Sunday's game. This will keep the Vikes' QB carousel turning -- something the Twin Cities should be used to by now. After all, Freeman is the 12th quarterback to start a game for Minnesota in the past 12 seasons. Can you name the other 11?More games from ESPN Arcade »
Giants earn first win of season
After a quarter, it seemed like the New York Giants might be bound for yet another defeat in this difficult season. But then, well, it finally happened: New York won, 23-7 at the expense of the lowly Minnesota Vikings and debutant quarterback Josh Freeman. New Tom Coughlin's crew is 1-6. What's next for New York?

NFL Week 7 -- Vikings at Giants
The Super Bowl champs from two years ago! A playoff team from last season! And ... only one win between them in 2013? That's the situation facing the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants, whose playoff hopes appear dead already. The questions, then: Is this the week the 0-6 Giants finally win? And what to make of the Minnesota quarterback situation?
Vikings sign Josh Freeman
Josh Freeman's unemployment didn't last long -- less than a week after getting released by the Buccaneers, he's been signed by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have struggled at quarterback this season, with Matt Cassel starting in place of an injured Christian Ponder for the team's only win of the season. If Freeman recovers the form he showed early in his career, it could turn Minnesota's season around quickly; if not, he'll be another wrong answer to a question the Vikings have been asking for years.
Cassel to start for Vikings
Matt Cassel will get another chance to recreate his success filling in for Tom Brady in 2008, as the Vikings will start him on Sunday against the Steelers. Christian Ponder's injury is too serious for him to start, but missing this game could be risky for him. Ponder hasn't played well this season, and if Cassel provides stability at the position, he could do to Ponder what Lou Gehrig did to Wally Pipp. But, you know, with much less historical significance.
