Vikings Vs. Colts 2012: Christian Ponder Plays Well In 4th Quarter

The Minnesota Vikings came up short on Sunday, but they finished with a strong fourth-quarter rally that nearly turned the tide. SB Nation's Daily Norseman appreciated the play of quarterback Christian Ponder over the final 15 minutes:

There's something cool about a guy that can bring a team back from two scores down and tie the game late. Yeah, there was a little luck involved, but still, hat tip to the young kid for not giving up and putting the Vikings in position to win the game. Those last two drives were impressive, and absolutely big time and clutch.

Ponder helped the Vikings erase a two-touchdown deficit and tie the game late, but the Colts were able to come right back and get into position for a game-winning field goal. Ponder finished the day 27-35 for 245 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
