Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says Christian Ponder may have passed for just 91 yards in Sunday's win over the Bears, but he’s also praising Ponder for making key third down conversions in the fourth quarter.

Frazier told reporters today that was “a major part” of the Vikings’ success.

Frazier also talked about winning on the road, which Minnesota must do the next two weeks if they expect to make the NFC playoffs. The primary area of improvement while outside Mall of America Field is to win the turnover battle.

"We haven’t done a good job when it comes to winning that turnover battle and it has cost us," Frazier said. "Our margin for error is not very big, and when it happens it become very problematic for our team."
