Quinn, a first-round draft pick in 2007, will make his fourth career start. He went 1-2 last season before a finger injury that required surgery. Quinn had slightly better statistics than Anderson, a former Pro Bowl selection, during the exhibition season.
Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian, who did not play most of the preseason because of a hamstring injury, was active for the opener. Berrian led the NFL last season with 20.1 yards per catch and scored a career-high seven touchdowns.
