Christian Ponder has had a wildly inconsistent ride in his 28 starts, but the Vikings are hoping he can build off his second half from last Sunday and make that the norm.
BEST OF MAXIM
Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder has now been intercepted five times in his first three games.Fantasy Spin:He's only thrown two touchdowns over that span. At least Ponder (25-for-42, 228 yards, one INT) had the decency to rush for 46 yards on five carries Sunday against Cleveland, though it probably wasn't enough to salvage the day for most fantasy owners.
MINNEAPOLIS - Shortly after Sunday's 31-27 loss to the depleted Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier looked every bit as defeated as his 0-3 team.
Frazier scratched his head lamenting a loss in which his defense came up with four turnovers. Offensive line struggles, an inability to run on one of the league's best run defense and another failure defensively...
Christian Ponder knows there is a lot to correct across the board for the Vikings, but he doesn’t believe a change at quarterback is coming in the next week.
After a 10-6 finish that earned them a trip to the playoffs last season, the Minnesota Vikings had reason to hope for at least the possibility of a repeat performance in 2013, didn’t they? In one of the NFL’s toughest divisions in which three teams ended the season with 10 or more wins, a second-place finish accompanied by a ticket to wild card weekend is nothing to
Without fail, the most pressing topic for fans in this week's mailbag revolves around the Minnesota Vikings' quarterback.
The same questions about Christian Ponder continue and likely aren't going to end anytime soon. The answers, unfortunately, aren't likely to change either. At least we can provide an outlet for you, the fans, to vent your frustration.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he was hesitant running the ball Sunday in a 31-30 loss to the Chicago Bears. “Yeah, I was just able to confirm that I was hesitant on some [runs],” Peterson
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings enter Sunday's home game with a sense of urgency following their 0-2 start.
Sunday's opponent, the Cleveland Browns, added to the urgency early this week by making moves at quarterback and running back that sent Minnesota searching for film in preparation. Not only have the Vikings not faced Cleveland since 2009 and the Browns...

Last week: 25
On paper, almost beating the Bears is Chicago looks impressive, but consider that the Vikings lost despite winning the turnover battle, which only happens about 21% of the time. Christian Ponder didn’t have a bad game, completing 16 of 30 for 227 yards, a touchdown, and an interception and he probably kept Matt Cassel at bay for another week, after it was reported...
Someone will win Sunday’s game between the Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings.
Despite denying reports that they are tanking the season the Brows traded away running back Trent Richadson and will start third string quarterback Brian Hoyer for this game.
Things are not exactly going right for the Vikings either. They are 0-2 and questions are again circulating about the ability...
