Vikings Win, But Lose Ponder In Comeback
Source: Chip Scoggins, Star Tribune
Down to only 42 players in uniform because of a rash of injuries, the Vikings secured their first victory on American soil Thursday night in unlikely fashion: With Christian Ponder leading a comeback and their defense holding firm.
Strange developments, right?
Matt Cassel provided a steady hand in relief of an injured Ponder and the defense cranked up the pass rush after a miserable first half as the Vikings halted their four-game losing streak with a 34-27 victory against the Washington Redskins at Mall of America Field.
