Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier says unequivocally that his team’s starting quarterback in Christian Ponder. Frazier says he never considered taking Ponder out of last week’s game. Ponder has struggled in recent weeks, throwing for only 63 yards in Sunday’s loss at Seattle and only 58 yards in a win against Arizona two-and-a-half weeks ago. He has eight interceptions in the last five games, after having not thrown a pick in the first four games of the year. Minnesota is 5-and-4 and hosting Detroit this Sunday at noon.
