With Bridgewater Uncertain, Ponder Waits In Wings

Teddy Bridgewater is progressing. But will he be ready for kickoff against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday? It could be a game-day decision.

Opponent Profile: Vikings Renew Rivalry With Packers On Thursday

The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers meet for the first time in 2014 on Thursday in Lambeau Field. Both teams are coming off solid wins which got them into a tie for second place in the NFC North Division.

Pondering Life As A 3rd-Stringer With Vikings

Christian Ponder’s descent from first-round draft pick to third-string quarterback has been formalized, with the release of the first depth chart of the season by the Minnesota Vikings. After losing the starting job to Matt Cassel last year and watching the team draft Teddy Bridgewater, Ponder entered the final year of his rookie contract in lame-duck mode, realizing the likelihood he’ll soon be playing elsewhere.
