Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder attempts to bounce back after loss

Wesley Hitt

Christian Ponder threw two interceptions versus the Packers last week.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder is hoping to bounce back after a 23-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers last week in which he threw two key interceptions in the third quarter.

Ponder was was 12-of-25 passing for 119 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions against the Packers last week. The Vikings led the Packers, 14-10, at halftime before Ponder's interceptions swung the momentum and the Minnesota offense failed to score in the second half.

Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com thinks "it's not beyond reason" to think that backup quarterback Joe Webb may see playing time if Ponder struggles again this week when the Vikings take on the Chicago Bears.

At 6-6 so far this season, the Vikings trail the Packers and Bears by two games in the NFC North division and are still in the running for a wild card spot.

Ponder was 22-of-43 passing for 159 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Vikings' 28-10 loss to the Bears in Week 12.
