Vikings name Nick Mullens starting quarterback moving forward

posted in: News | 0

Nick Mullens will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings moving forward.

The official announcement came from head coach Kevin O’Connell on Tuesday before the Vikings held a walkthrough practice at TCO Performance Center. The decision makes sense considering Mullens replaced Josh Dobbs under center the past Sunday to lead the Vikings to a 3-0 road victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

Though the offense struggled for most of the game, Mullens completed 9 of 13 passes for 83 yards, leading the Vikings down the field for their only points of the game.  Meanwhile, Dobbs was very inefficient, finishing 10 of 23 passing for 63 yards.

It’s still unclear if Dobbs or Jaren Hall will be the backup quarterback.
