The Minnesota Vikings will continue with Josh Freeman as their starting quarterback despite a lackluster performance in his debut Monday night against the New York Giants.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Tuesday that Freeman will start against Green Bay on Sunday night.

Freeman was 20 of 53 for 190 yards, no touchdowns and one interception during the 23-7 loss to the Giants for a completion percentage of 37.7.

"It was up and down," Frazier said Monday night of Freeman's debut. "We put together what we thought was a good plan to help him be successful in this ballgame, but it didn't work out."
