Failure to capitalize in all three phases keeps Vikings winless

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was given 51 seconds, one timeout and a four-point deficit to try to rectify his team’s slow start this season and give his critics something to chew on before calling him out.

By akrammer@1500espn.com

‘The moment,’ or play in the game that solidified the outcome, came with the Minnesota Vikings down 27-24 early in the fourth quarter, when quarterback Christian Ponder tripped over guard Brandon Fusco’s foot and delivered a sloppy handoff to running back Adrian Peterson, who never had control and lost the fumble.

The Minnesota Vikings trailed the Jacksonville Jaguars by three points with 20 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the 2012 opener when they got the ball at their own 31-yard line.

There was little reason for hope.
