Nov. 20 10:03 AM PT11:03 AM MT12:03 PM CT1:03 PM ET18:03 GMT2:03 AM 北京时间11:03 AM MST1:03 PM EST12:03 PM CT22:03 UAE13:03 ET16:03 - Ponder will be the starter at Green Bay on Sunday.
Analysis: Vikings coach Leslie Frazier announced his decision on Wednesday, and Ponder made this sound like it wasn't much of a decision at all. Ponder said Frazier didn't tell him he was keeping the job. He just assumed the spot was still his. Ponder's status was in question after he had three more turnovers last week in a loss at Seattle. After throwing his second interception in the fourth quarter, Ponder was pulled for Matt Cassel.
Nov. 19 3:07 AM PT4:07 AM MT5:07 AM CT6:07 AM ET11:07 GMT7:07 PM 北京时间4:07 AM MST6:07 AM EST5:07 AM CT15:07 UAE6:07 ET9:07 - Ponder was pulled for Matt Cassel early in the fourth quarter on Sunday at Seattle, and coach Leslie Frazier didn't convey much hope on Monday for Ponder to keep the job this week.
Analysis: Ponder lost a fumble on the third play of the game and ended consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter with those cringe-worthy interceptions, a collection of mistakes that fit right in with his career portfolio and led to 17 points for the Seahawks.
Nov. 18 1:47 PM PT2:47 PM MT3:47 PM CT4:47 PM ET21:47 GMT5:47 AM 北京时间2:47 PM MST4:47 PM EST3:47 PM CT1:47 UAE (+1)16:47 ET19:47 - Against the Seahawks, Ponder finished 13 of 22 for 129 yards, one TD, two interceptions and a lost fumble.
Analysis: Ponder completed just 59.1 percent of his passes, his second-lowest percentage of the year.
Nov. 15 11:18 AM PT12:18 PM MT1:18 PM CT2:18 PM ET19:18 GMT3:18 AM 北京时间12:18 PM MST2:18 PM EST1:18 PM CT23:18 UAE14:18 ET17:18 - Ponder says his injured left shoulder is ready to go and he wants to start against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Coach Leslie Frazier says he'll wait until Saturday before making a decision.
Analysis: Ponder is still recovering from a dislocated left shoulder, but the right-handed quarterback was able to go through practice this week. He says he expects to be ready to go on Sunday.
Nov. 8 11:38 AM PT12:38 PM MT1:38 PM CT2:38 PM ET19:38 GMT3:38 AM 北京时间12:38 PM MST2:38 PM EST1:38 PM CT23:38 UAE14:38 ET17:38 - The Minnesota Vikings are unsure if Ponder will be healed in time for their next game.
Analysis: Ponder dislocated his non-throwing left shoulder trying to dive for a touchdown at the end of a run late in the third quarter during Minnesota's victory over Washington on Thursday night. Coach Leslie Frazier said Friday that an MRI test on Ponder's arm showed no further damage. His ability to play next Sunday at Seattle will depend on how much strength he's able to gain back in the joint.
Nov. 8 12:41 PM PT1:41 PM MT2:41 PM CT3:41 PM ET20:41 GMT4:41 AM 北京时间1:41 PM MST3:41 PM EST2:41 PM CT0:41 UAE (+1)15:41 ET18:41 - Ponder was 17 of 21 for 174 yards and two TDs and one INT in Thursday's 34-27 win over Washington. He also rushed twice for 13 yards.
Analysis: Ponder dislocated his non-throwing left shoulder so his status is questionable but if you are using him as a fantasy quarterback, your status in your league is also questionable.
Nov. 7 6:56 PM PT7:56 PM MT8:56 PM CT9:56 PM ET2:56 GMT10:56 AM 北京时间7:56 PM MST9:56 PM EST8:56 PM CT6:56 UAE (+1)21:56 ET0:56 - Minnesota quarterback Christian Ponder has injured his left shoulder, and the Vikings have ruled him out of the rest of the game against the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: Ponder was hurt late in the third quarter when he scrambled for 14 yards and dived toward the pylon, exposing his upper body to two defenders as he rolled out of bounds. The call on the field was a touchdown, but as Ponder walked off in pain in care of trainer Eric Sugarman, the replay officials reversed the ruling to give the Vikings the ball at the 1.
Nov. 4 10:04 AM PT11:04 AM MT12:04 PM CT1:04 PM ET18:04 GMT2:04 AM 北京时间11:04 AM MST1:04 PM EST12:04 PM CT22:04 UAE13:04 ET16:04 - In Sunday's loss to Dallas,Ponder was 25 of 37 after being named starter on Friday, and with Josh Freeman inactive because of a concussion.
Analysis: Though Ponder has thrown three TDs, six INTs and isn't a consistent fantasy option, he's the best choice for the Vikings if healthy.
Nov. 1 10:10 AM PT11:10 AM MT12:10 PM CT1:10 PM ET17:10 GMT1:10 AM 北京时间10:10 AM MST12:10 PM EST11:10 AM CT21:10 UAE13:10 ET15:10 - Ponder will start at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Analysis: Vikings coach Leslie Frazier made the announcement on Friday. Frazier has tabbed Ponder over Josh Freeman in a somewhat surprising decision. After spending three games on the sideline, Ponder returned to the starting lineup last weekend against the Green Bay Packers while Freeman sat out with a concussion. But he did little to inspire confidence that he was capable of being the long-term answer at the position.
Oct. 25 1:08 PM PT2:08 PM MT3:08 PM CT4:08 PM ET20:08 GMT4:08 AM 北京时间1:08 PM MST3:08 PM EST3:08 PM CT0:08 UAE (+1)16:08 ET18:08 - Ponder will be Minnesota's starting quarterback again on Sunday night. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier made the announcement Friday. Josh Freeman took the last turn on the carousel, but after his rough performance on Monday night he reported concussion-like symptoms.
Analysis: Freeman was cleared to resume practicing with the team on Friday, but Frazier decided that was too late in the week for him to catch up with the game plan and get ready to play Green Bay. So after being benched for Matt Cassel earlier this month, Ponder has the job again. The best game of Ponder's NFL career came against the Packers last year, a victory by the Vikings to finish the regular season and reach the playoffs.
Oct. 23 10:24 AM PT11:24 AM MT12:24 PM CT1:24 PM ET17:24 GMT1:24 AM 北京时间10:24 AM MST12:24 PM EST12:24 PM CT21:24 UAE13:24 ET15:24 - Josh Freeman has a concussion and Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he will likely turn to Ponder for the game against Green Bay on Sunday night.
Analysis: Ponder is back in after losing his starting job a month ago. Ponder started the first three games, all losses for the Vikings.
Sep. 25 5:10 AM PT6:10 AM MT7:10 AM CT8:10 AM ET12:10 GMT8:10 PM 北京时间5:10 AM MST7:10 AM EST7:10 AM CT16:10 UAE8:10 ET11:10 - Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings against Carolina on Sunday.
Analysis: Ponder was cleared to play this Sunday against Carolina. Despite Frazier's earlier insistence that Ponder was the starter when healthy, the Vikings decided to make the former first-round draft pick the backup the same week they signed ex-Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman for still another option.
Sep. 16 11:05 AM PT12:05 PM MT1:05 PM CT2:05 PM ET18:05 GMT2:05 AM 北京时间11:05 AM MST1:05 PM EST1:05 PM CT22:05 UAE14:05 ET17:05 - Ponder threw for 227 yards, a touchdown and an interception Sunday at Chicago after getting picked off three times in a season-opening loss to Detroit.
Analysis: Ponder did not play that bad, but he's still nothing more than a No. 3 fantasy QB at best.
July 31 3:25 PM PT4:25 PM MT5:25 PM CT6:25 PM ET22:25 GMT6:25 AM 北京时间3:25 PM MST5:25 PM EST5:25 PM CT2:25 UAE (+1)18:25 ET21:25 - Ponder improved statistically from his rookie season, and the Vikings won seven more games to make the playoffs. But those developments didn't quiet the questions about whether the former first-round draft pick fits the franchise's plans.
Analysis: The third year of Ponder's career will determine whether he's the answer or not. With Adrian Peterson coming off a 2,000-yard rushing season, an offensive line intact from the year before and upgraded group of receivers, Ponder should have more support than he did last season.
