Minnesota Vikings takeaway No. 2

Another tough decision needs to be made at quarterback.

The Minnesota Vikings have started four different quarterbacks during the 2023 NFL season and it wouldn't be too shocking if the coaching staff made the decision to change direction one more time before the season is over.

Nick Mullens has struggled as a starter for the Vikings. His four interceptions and two fumbles hurt Minnesota's chances of achieving victory on Sunday. Ball security needs to be much better going forward.

Many fans are already pounding the table for rookie quarterback Jaren Hall to have another opportunity as a starter. Considering Mullens' struggles, it's not out of the question that he could get the nod in one of the team's upcoming games.

As long as the Minnesota Vikings aren't mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, expect the coaching staff to roll with whichever quarterback they feel gives the team the best chance to win, whether that be based on experience or potential.
