EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings will try to keep the Green Bay Packers - jokergreen0220 - 27.02.2020

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings will try to keep the Green Bay Packers guessing about their starting quarterback this week.Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday he has not yet decided whether Shaun Hill will stay in the lineup or be replaced by Sam Bradford on Sunday night in the long-anticipated matchup between the border-state rivals that will break in Minnesotas new $1.1 billion stadium.I just figured itd be good sports talk radio. I dont know, Zimmer said, adding: Green Bay is an awfully good team. Everybody is picking them to go to the Super Bowl. Were just trying to be in the fight, and Ill try to keep my cards close to the vest.Bradford had only seven days to prepare for the opener at Tennessee, after arriving in a trade with Philadelphia that was prompted by the season-ending injury to Teddy Bridgewaters left knee. Vikings coaches have praised Bradford as a quick study, but the 15-year veteran Hill was the safe pick for the first week.If they didnt trust him to make a spot start 12 days after Bridgewater went down with a devastating injury, then there wouldve been no point in even having Hill on the roster in the first place. Hill did nothing to invalidate Zimmers decision, completing 18 of 33 passes for 236 yards and most importantly no turnovers during Minnesotas 25-16 victory.He had poise. He never got too high or too low, wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. If you noticed, he had some wheels if you saw him take off and run a little bit. Im just happy that he is playing at a high level, and I expect that from him.Adrian Peterson rushed for only 31 yards on 19 attempts, a product of the Titans crowding the line of scrimmage and daring Hill to beat them deep.One-third of Hills completions netted more than 15 yards, and four of them (two to Adam Thielen, one to Diggs and one to Kyle Rudolph) could be qualified as long passes. The throw to Diggs, midway through the fourth quarter as the Vikings drove for the fourth field goal of the second half by Blair Walsh, gained 33 yards. That was the only one that exceeded 21 yards.There are two reasons Zimmer and his assistants would make the switch and send Bradford out for the debut of U.S. Bank Stadium, On the big stage of the nationally televised prime-time game for the defending NFC North champion Vikings against the team best positioned to take away that title.One: His superior arm strength ought to help the Vikings stretch the field better and, ideally, create more space in the box for Peterson to run free. Two: The Vikings gave up two draft picks for him, including their first-rounder in 2017, so the plan all along has been to start him as soon as practical.Theres a lot of different things going into it, Zimmer said.Cornerback Trae Waynes also fared well in his fill-in start after Xavier Rhodes hurt his right knee the morning of the game. Rhodes had been fighting a hamstring injury for the last few weeks, but that has healed. Rhodes said he felt a popping sensation in the knee while he was stretching and didnt sound optimistic about being ready to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. He was headed for an MRI exam Monday afternoon.I was excited coming into the season, ready to play in the first game, and it didnt turn out the way I wanted it to, so I was pretty upset about it, Rhodes said.Zimmer said Rhodes wont need surgery.So well take it day by day, the coach said.Terence Newman started at the other outside spot, with Captain Munnerlyn in his usual role in the nickel package. Waynes will figure to take some of Newmans playing time this year, his second in the league. The injury to Rhodes raised an extra opportunity for Waynes.He continues to get better. Hell continue to get more playing time, Zimmer said.

LOUIS -- Back in April when the season started, it was easy to expect the Pirates season-ending trip to Busch Stadium meaning something for both Pittsburgh and the St. Louis Cardinals.Instead, all Pittsburgh can do when it closes the season is play the role of spoiler against a Cardinals team trying to make its sixth consecutive National League playoff appearance.St. Louis starts the Friday night series opener fresh off the years most controversial win, a 4-3 decision Thursday night over the Cincinnati Reds that was decided by Yadier Molinas two-out RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning.Molinas one-hop liner shouldnt have scored Matt Carpenter, though, because the ball hit off signage beyond the left field wall. It should have been a ground-rule double, but third base umpire Scott Barry ruled the ball in play and the Reds didnt challenge fast enough after the fact.Biggest win of the year, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, and tomorrow nights the biggest game of the year. Cant wait.St. Louis (83-76) is two games behind the New York Mets (85-74) for the NLs top wild-card spot and a game in arrears of the San Francisco Giants (84-75) for the second spot.The Giants close the season with a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, while the Mets finish with three at Philadelphia.The Cardinals will have the matchup advantage in the opener against the Pirates as St. Louis right-hander Carlos Martinez (15-9, 3.15 ERA) will face raw but talented Pittsburgh right-hander Tyler Glasnow (0-1, 4.91).Martinez is coming off a 3-1 loss Sunday night at the Chicago Cubs that saw him work six innings aand give up two runs on six hits and four walks while fanning six.dddddddddddd Martinez is 3-5 with a 4.01 career ERA against the Pirates, and 1-2 this season in three starts.Glasnow will make his fourth career start. His first occurred July 7 in St. Louis, where he pitched decently for 5 1/3 innings but lost 5-1 as Adam Wainwright stifled Pittsburgh for seven innings. The hard-throwing Glasnow can touch the mid to upper 90s with his fastball but has experienced command issues at times.The Pirates (78-81) reached the playoffs the past three seasons, but they fell victim to injuries and inconsistent pitching this year. They will have to sweep the series to avoid their 21st losing season in 24 years.Pittsburgh will be without left fielder Starling Marte (back) for the weekend and might be without shortstop Jordy Mercer (forearm) as well.Were going to play all the men that are capable of playing, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. Marte has been unplugged. Mercer might not be able to go. You saw a couple of throws he made across the diamond (Thursday). ... Thats basically all hes got.Pittsburgh leads the season series 9-7, having won five of the seven games in St. Louis. The Cardinals are 35-43 at Busch Stadium, clinching their first losing mark at home since 1999.The Saturday game will match Pirates right-hander Chad Kuhl (5-4, 4.25) against a pitcher to be determined. St. Louis will use Wainwright (13-9, 4.67) in Sundays regular-season finale opposite Ryan Vogelsong (3-7, 5.00). ' ' '
