Continued: Reusse: Ponder found his rhythm in Chicago, then the rug was pulled

And after that third-down throw to Jennings, another third-down conversion for Ponder at the goal line — using his speed or his arm — could have caused legions of Vikings fans to say:

“Maybe we were wrong about this guy. Maybe he can turn into a reason that this team wins games in tough circumstances.”

Musgrave didn’t believe, and now Ponder must wait for that moment. He could go 20-for-22 with three touchdowns Sunday and it won’t matter, because it would be a victory over the Browns with Brian Hoyer starting at quarterback.

Bad decision, Purple brainiacs — not giving your quarterback the chance to lock up a road win in Chicago and gain big points back home.
