Vikings Going With Rookie at QB

The Minnesota Vikings are going with rookie Tarvaris Jackson as their starting quarterback.

Coach Brad Childress announced today that Jackson would start the final two games of the regular season, beginning Thursday night at Green Bay.

Jackson, a second-round draft choice out of Alabama State, replaced Brad Johnson in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the New York Jets and threw for 177 yards and a touchdown. It was the third time this season that Childress had benched Johnson.
