KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The last time Matt Cassel stepped inside Arrowhead Stadium, banners were flying overhead for him to be benched. He had been booed at a recent celebrity softball game and become a scapegoat for an entire organization during hard times.
Now, two years later, the former Chiefs quarterback has the inside track on the starting job for the Minnesota Vikings, who visit Kansas City for a preseason game Saturday night.
Both teams are expected to play their starters into the third quarter, though plenty of stars are also expected to sit out. Among them are Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who both missed practice time this week.
