Video: Ponder on Packers


Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder has a title on his mind as he prepares for Saturday's Packers playoff game in Titletown.

"Our number one goal is to get to the Super Bowl and win it and have a ring on our finger," Ponder told reporters Monday. "We’re just going to prepare and work hard like we do every week."

Ponder says it'll be tough to win in Green Bay, but he's looking forward to the challenge.

"We've been treating it like a playoff atmosphere since that first Chicago game," Ponder said. "We knew if we lost one then we'd be out of the dance, and that's how it is now."
