Greg Jennings and the Minnesota Vikings have been a far more productive offense with Matt Cassel at the helm.
The Vikings are out of playoff contention, but they've finally found a rhythm throwing the ball with Cassel effectively going deep and targeting a wider range of receivers. That starts with Jennings, who has caught all four of his touchdown passes this season from Cassel.
In just 4½ games with Cassel, compared to 8½ without him, Jennings has accumulated 57 percent of his yardage for the year.
Jennings says he'd welcome Cassel back as the starter for 2014.
