Vikings vs. Packers: Christian Ponder Faces Big Test Against Green Bay's Defense

When the Minnesota Vikings host the Green Bay Packers, rookie quarterback Christian Ponder will take the field leading the 1-5 Vikings in his first NFL start. Ponder couldn"t be facing a bigger challenge as he makes his debut against the league"s last standing unbeaten. 

Ponder is in for quite the challenge facing a defense that is tied for the seventh in the league for total points allowed. While the Packers haven"t given up very many points, they certainly have allowed teams to pick up chunks of yards. It wouldn"t be surprising to see Ponder put up some heavy yardage totals, but lack the finishing skills that will be needed to provide the massive upset.
