Hill stepped in for concussed starter Teddy Bridgewater in Sunday's game against the Rams, completing 2-of-6 passes for 15 yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran saw his first action of the season Sunday, and actually led the Vikings to a game-winning field goal in overtime. It is unclear when Bridgewater will be able to return, but Hill is seemingly in line to start any games he misses. The Vikings will face off with a middling Raiders defense in Week 10, but Hill doesn't possess much fantasy potential, even in a starting role.

The Vikings have signed Hill, reports.

The addition of the 35-year-old Hill -- whose deal relays is worth $6.5 million over the next two seasons -- gives the Vikings a capable and experienced backup to work behind the team's rising young starter at QB, Teddy Bridgewater.

Hill completed 26-of-37 passes for 243 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 20-6 loss at Seattle.

Both of his interceptions came in the second half, and one of them was returned for a touchdown to essentially ice the game. He played respectably, once the Rams benched Austin Davis, but he'll likely return to a reserve role, if he re-signs with St. Louis.

Hill completed 24 of 32 passes for 290 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Giants.

If you were desperate enough to start Hill this week, this is probably on the better end of what you could have hoped for. Don't expect a repeat performance next week at Seattle.

Hill completed 20-of-39 passes for 239 yards, with no touchdowns and an interception, in Thursday's 12-6 loss to the Cardinals. He added 11 yards on three carries.

Things went no better for the St. Louis offense than Hill's statistics indicate, as the team had five consecutive three-and-outs at one point in the contest. The running game was of little use, with Tre Mason gaining just 33 yards on 13 carries, and also coughing up a fumble. While Hill's mostly been solid this season, he has largely ridden the coattails of a red-hot Rams defense. He still figures to bounce back, at least to some extent, in a much friendlier matchup with the Giants next week.

Hill completed 16-of-22 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 24-0 win over Washington.

Hill connected with six different receivers, throwing both of his touchdowns to tight end Jared Cook. Despite relatively modest yardage totals, Hill has four touchdowns and zero interceptions in the last two games, and he's got a decent Week 15 matchup against the Cardinals, who are allowing the sixth-most passing yards per game this season.

Hill completed 13-of-22 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 52-0 win over the Raiders.

After struggling in Week 12 against the Chargers, Hill was much better against the Raiders, leading the Rams to touchdowns on their first five drives. Despite the success, it wasn't all on the arm of Hill, as running back Tre Mason finished the day with 117 rushing yards and two scores, while also adding 47 receiving yards and another touchdown. Hill will continue to be more of a game manager, while the offense moves with Mason, though he could be in line for a few more scores in Week 14 against a Redskins defense that has allowed the third-most passing touchdowns this season.

Hill completed just 18-of-35 passes for 198 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 loss at San Diego. He also had three turnovers, including a costly end-zone interception in the final minute of the game.

Hill didn't make a lot of plays early on, and was under a lot of pressure throughout, fumbling midway through the third quarter, which was returned for a touchdown. It looked like he might rebound though, as he made a couple of nice throws on the Rams' penultimate drive of the game, capped by a seven-yard touchdown pass to Stedman Bailey with 2:07 remaining. After St. Louis forced a punt and got decent yardage on the return, Hill hooked up with Kenny Britt on a pretty 27-yard play, to put the ball inside the Chargers' 10-yard line. A couple of plays later, Hill threw an interception in the end zone, on what appeared to be a bad read. It will be interesting to see how Hill responds next week in a favorable matchup against the Raiders at home.

Hill completed 20 of 29 passes for 220 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 22-7 win over the Broncos.

Making his first start since Week 1, Hill connected with seven different receivers, with most of his production coming from wideout Kenny Britt, who caught four passes for 128 yards and a touchdown, a 63-yarder in the first quarter that put the Rams up 10-0. Hill was composed and fairly accurate with his throws and certainly did enough to keep the starting job that he just reclaimed from Austin Davis. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against the Chargers, who are ranked ninth in the league in passing yards allowed per game.

Hill will start Sunday's game against the Broncos in place of Austin Davis, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

It was reported Tuesday that Davis would remain the Rams' starter, but head coach Jeff Fisher changed course, and will go with Hill this week instead. Hill has not started a game since Week 1, but Fisher is hopeful that he will give the Rams a better chance to win this week in a tough environment facing the league's top run defense.
