15. Minnesota Vikings (1-5) Last week: 12

The quarterback carousel in Minnesota is still up and running heading into divisional rivalry game this Sunday night against Green Bay. A concussion (and probably the fact that Josh Freeman couldn’t hit an open receiver Monday Night if he was standing two feet in front of him) will spell an opportunity for Christian Ponder to return and maybe keep hold of his starting quarterback gig. He should probably be their starter anyway regardless of the outcome of Sunday’s game which is in serious doubt with a red hot Aaron Rodgers coming to town sporting a 123.5 career passer rating in nine Sunday night regular season starts.
