Vikings QB Christian Ponder threw for his highest yardage total since Week 8 and tied a career-high with three touchdown passes Sunday against Green Bay.Fantasy Spin:Ponder hasn't had to do much besides turn around and hand the ball of to 2,000-yard rusher Adrian Peterson in the second half of the season, so Sunday's performance will likely go unnoticed.

Ponder has quietly passed through his struggles

The Minnesota Vikings are Adrian Peterson's team. Christian Ponder, though, is the one most responsible for their progress. The passing game was so bad and the ground game was so good that, for a while, Peterson was rushing for more yards than Ponder was accumulating passing. But since the Vikings lost to the Packers on Dec. 2, due largely to the two interceptions Ponder threw...

Ponder playoff bound in his second year

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier, basking in Sunday's playoff-clinching win against the Green Bay Packers, made sure he delivered a very important message to his embattled quarterback following Sunday's 37-34 win. He approached second-year starter Christian Ponder. "Do you realize you just led your team to the playoffs in your second year in the National...

When Ponder was down, Frazier picked him up

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Christian Ponder walked off the field on Dec. 2 at Green Bay feeling personally responsible for the Minnesota Vikings' loss to a division rival, a defeat that nearly finished off his team's playoff chances. Ponder had thrown two interceptions, both in the second half and both in the red zone, in a game the Vikings had led, 14-10, at halftime. The second...

Vikings battle turnovers, not elements, outside

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier pondered on Monday whether he would have his team practice outdoors this week in anticipation of Saturday's playoff game in Green Bay, where temperatures are expected to range from a high of 27 degrees to a low of 14 degrees. By the time Frazier arrived at the team's Winter Park facilities Tuesday, the issue had...

One and done; Green Bay Packers

Recent playoff games in Lambeau have not been kind to Packers fans…next weekend will be no different.   My predictions are ALWAYS wrong, so…Packer fans…enjoy the very real possibility that what I am about to write will be dead wrong…because it usually is. That being said, the POSSIBILITY that I may be wrong is really the only hope the Packers have of not being embarrassed...

Vikings into playoffs with Winfield in doubt

MINNEAPOLIS A little over a month ago, the Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Christian Ponder were licking their wounds after a tough loss at Lambeau Field and lamenting a missed chance at a key road win against the Green Bay Packers because of two interceptions thrown by Ponder. Minnesota spoke then of the necessity of having to win-out to have any hopes of reaching the postseason...

Dickerson happy Peterson didn't break record

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson finished the season nine yards away from breaking Eric Dickerson's NFL rushing record for a season.  But the Pro Bowler says that he only had one focus, and that was winning the game.   "Ultimately we got the 'W'," Peterson said after carrying the ball a career-high 34 times for 199 yards rushing and a touchdown...

Passing game a welcome addition for Vikings

Sunday's 37-34 win against the Green Bay Packers perhaps wasn't the most dominating win of the season for the Minnesota Vikings, but it certainly was the biggest. Beating NFC North champion Green Bay was Minnesota's most important victory since the 2009 season. A 37-34 win, thanks to a time-expiring 29-yard field goal by rookie kicker Blair Walsh doesn't qualify...

Packers lose to Vikings, lose bye

Well, well, well...that didn't quite work out as planned, did it, Packer fans? While we knew -- and projected -- that this would be a close game (we had the Packers beating the Vikings 27-24), we didn't think the Green Bay Packers would let the opportunity to secure the number 2 seed and a bye in the NFC playoffs slip through their fingers. They did. Losing to Minnesota 37...

Game Thread: Packers vs. Vikings is All That Matters

OK ladies, this is it. Here we go. Everyone take a deep breathe and try not to get nervous tummies where you have to poop a bunch. We need you for the long haul. It's the final game of the Minnesota Vikings' regular season, and they're playing the Green Bay Packers. If the Vikings win, they're playing again next week like a boss. If they lose today, they still...

PJD's Game 16 Recap: A Game for the History Books

A Game for the History Books: They actually did it. A team that was predicted to finish by most experts at a paltry 3-13 again pulled off the ridiculous and ended up 10-6. They had some poor games along the way (Tampa Bay loss? Should've won that damn Colts game), but they also notched some impressive wins along the road that could have told us all this was inevitable. Wins...
