Vikings unsure who their starting QB will be vs. the Bengals

In addition to providing an update about Justin Jefferson on Monday, Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell also shared an update about the team's quarterback situation heading into Week 15.

According to the Star Tribune's Ben Goessling, O'Connell said the team returned to Minnesota late on Sunday, and he wants to have a little more time to look at the film from the win over the Raiders before determining a starting quarterback for the upcoming Bengals game.

Assuming O'Connell will be choosing between Josh Dobbs and Nick Mullens as the team's starter for Week 15, the decision seems pretty simple, even if it's only based on how both quarterbacks performed on Sunday.

In three quarters, Dobbs completed 43.5 percent of his 23 pass attempts for just 63 yards and no touchdowns while also getting sacked five times.

As for Mullens, in less than one quarter, he completed 69.2 percent of his 13 passes for 83 yards, he wasn't sacked, and he led the Vikings on their only scoring drive of the game.

The Dobbs experiment has seemed to run its course and a switch to Mullens needs to be made before Minnesota returns to the field on Saturday in Cincinnati.
