BALTIMORE -- Hello from a snowy M&T Bank Stadium, where we're just over an hour from kickoff between the Vikings and Ravens. There's snow expected throughout the afternoon, with a chance of it turning to sleet at some point. In any case, the field figures to be slippery today, so the Vikings could find an advantage with Adrian Peterson.
There are no surprises with the Vikings' inactives today; Christian Ponder is out, of course, with Matt Cassel starting at quarterback and Josh Freeman backing him up. Peterson, who was questionable for the game with a strained groin -- but always expected to play -- will start.
Here is the full list of Vikings inactives:
