The Minnesota Vikings needed to rely heavily on its defense in their Week 1 win against the Tennessee Titans. Minnesota is now hoping a quarterback change will take some of the pressure off Sunday.

The Vikings are expected to name Sam Bradford the starting quarterback for its Week 2 game against division rival Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN. Bradford took all first-team snaps in practice this week.

Bradford was expected to get accustomed to the offensive playbook before he takes over for Shaun Hill. He was acquired a week before the start of the season after Teddy Bridgewater tore his ACL and dislocated his knee.
