At least Vikings coach Leslie Frazier won't have to make a quarterback announcement Monday.
Or Wednesday. Or Thursday. Or Friday.
One positive for the Vikings that came out of Sunday's 26-26 tie against the Packers at Lambeau Field was their quarterback situation is settled. At least for this week.
But Christian Ponder did enough against the Packers to again get the nod next Sunday against Chicago at the Metrodome.
As the story pointed out, nearly each week this season, there has been some suspense about who would start at quarterback. Frazier has waited until mid to late week to make his announcement but that won't be the case this week. The Vikings take on the Bears who were torched by the Rams in Week 12.
