A lot of people on Twitter thought this was a helmet-to-helmet shot against a defenseless player and therefore should’ve been called a penalty. It wasn’t called but it didn’t matter. The Vikes won the game handily anyway. Jarius Wright was lucky to walk away from this one with all his marbles still intact. Ferocious hit. The Texans have an incredibly physical defense. They just pound people. They beat up Adrian Peterson so bad he had to give way to Toby Gerhart late in the game. But the one guy they didn’t really beat up on? Christian Ponder. He mostly avoided hits. He was able to run a couple times for positive gains. Very good performance by Ponder. He gets married. He plays arguably his best game as a pro later in the week. Good run for him. Now, beat Green Bay at home and go to the playoffs. How about it Christian? Keep the run going.
