(WDAY Sports) - The Minnesota Vikings will try to bounce back this weekend against Atlanta.

It'll be an especially big game for rookie quarterback Christian Ponder, who tossed three critical interceptions in last week's loss to Oakland and received a phone call from Leslie Frazier later that night to make sure he didn't take it too hard.

“It's good to hear from the head coach that he's behind 100 percent and these are the moments we'll go through but, you know, it was good to hear from him.”

“Moments like these for a young QB, whether you're Petyon or Eli Manning or Tom Brady, are not unusual. It's how you respond to it will determine his long term success.”
