The Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings are set to square off this Sunday. Carolina enters the contest coming off its second win of the season over the Washington Redskins. Minnesota, on the other hand, lost to the Green Bay Packers in a close game where rookie Christian Ponder made his debut.
It's been a busy week for the Vikings, who released wide receiver Bernard Berrian and suspended cornerback Chris Cook indefinitely. Minnesota will hope to put away its off-the-field distractions when it travels to Carolina, while the Panthers will hope to build off last weekend's win.
Here's a look at the upcoming game and three matchups to keep an eye on.
