Vikings fans are loud and proud in enemy territory to support the team against the Green Bay Packers Saturday.
The teams are meeting for the third time this season in a rematch of Sunday's season finale. The Vikings' 37-34 victory earned them the last wild-card spot in the NFC.
As Vikings fans were tailgating with drinks in hand and victory on their minds, a huge question mark hung over Viking's quarterback Christian Ponder. He was limited in practice all week with a bruised right elbow.
The Vikings made an announcement about 90 minutes before the game, saying Ponder was inactive and Joe Webb would be starting at quarterback.
Earlier, KSTP Sports Director Joe Schmit said Ponder was out early during practice in Green Bay and made about 10 soft throws before going back into the locker room.
