The 1-6 Minnesota Vikings visit the 2-5 Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon at Bank of America Stadium. Neither the Vikings nor the Panthers are pleased with their record as they approach they mid-point of the season, but both teams remain intriguing as they look to the future by starting rookie quarterbacks.
Minnesota's Christian Ponder didn't have the easiest assignment in his first start last week against the Green Bay Packers. The Vikings lost and Ponder struggled against the aggressive Green Bay defense at times, but he also show the ability to make plays and develop into a nice threat to play alongside Adrian Peterson. Of course, the Panthers are all in this season with rookie sensation Cam Newton at quarterback and they'll be trying to build on last week's impressive win over the Washington Redskins that saw Newton throw for 256 yards and rush for 59 yards.
