Vikings At Packers: Green Bay (Likely) Seals It

If you're a fan of the Minnesota Vikings, it's getting harder and harder to defend having Christian Ponder continue to start at quarterback.

On the final play of the third quarter, after yet another big run by Adrian Peterson, Ponder threw his second interception of the game, and the second to Morgan Burnett, to stop another Minnesota scoring threat. The Packers took over on that play, and held the ball for exactly eleven minutes, eating up the majority of the fourth quarter.

The Packers played it safe deep in Minnesota territory, settling for a field goal try by Mason Crosby from 31 yards out. Crosby has been shaky over the past few weeks, but Crosby drilled the kick to make the score 23-14. The Packer drive spanned 18 plays and 73 yards.

That leaves just four minutes of football at Lambeau Field, and the Vikings needing two scores in order to pull out a victory. With the way the Vikings' offense has looked so far this afternoon, it would appear that the odds of such a thing happening are relatively slim.
