Christian Ponder arguably had his best game as a pro by completing 21-of-35 for 198 yards and two TD passes. Ponder also added 33 yards on the ground and a TD.
Analysis: This wasn't his biggest statistical output, but considering it came against the vaunted San Francisco D, he gets plenty of bonus points. He mixed it up and wasn't dumping off all the time like we've seen him for most of his career. Percy Harvin is a huge help to create openings down the field and things might even get better for him once he gets Jerome Simpson back. He'll get a nice matchup against the Lions.
