SI.com on Ponder: 'best throw I saw all day'

The Minnesota Vikings may have lost 24-14 to Atlanta on Sunday without the help of all-everything running back Adrian Peterson, but former Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder continued to show the tremendous upside he has in the NFL.

Here's what Sports Illustrated's Don Banks wrote about a particular play that Ponder made in the game in his Sunday " Snap Judgements" column.

"The best throw I saw all day came from Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder, who hit Percy Harvin between the numbers on a 39-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-13 in the fourth quarter. It was a perfect strike, and even though Harvin was somehow being well-covered by Falcons inside linebacker Curtis Lofton on the play, the Vikings quarterback put it where only Harvin could make the play."
