Here's how key Vikings rookies performed in the Vikings 34-10 win over the Cardinals.
Christian Ponder — The Metrodome crowd was clear in letting Leslie Frazier know whom they wanted to play quarterback with their "we want Ponder" chants throughout the game. While Frazier avoided giving into the fans' demands Sunday, the day when he will have to is creeping closer as Donovan McNabb continues to struggle.
Kyle Rudolph — He followed up his two consecutive strong games with a doughnut in all the receiving categories. It's hard to blame him, though, as the Vikings' passing game only completed 10 passes. He still has a place in the Vikings' offense.
Christian Ballard — He is a part of the defensive line rotation and recorded a QB pressure Sunday.
