Matt Cassel passed for 265 yards against Baltimore and he'll start Sunday against the Eagles.

Cassel said he's excited to get the start and said a key to success is consistency as a quarterback.  In other games, Matt had running back Adrian Peterson in the backfield, but Adrian has a foot sprain.  He didn't practice on Wednesday and might practice on Friday. But he's very much in doubt for Sunday.

Matt said he's confident in the backups, including Matt Asiata. Toby Gerhart has a hamstring injury and he didn't practice Wednesday.  Christiaan Ponder will be backup quarterback and Josh Freeman will be third string quarterback.
