EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings are trying to figure out how to get off the ground.

They struggled through another poor performance by Christian Ponder in Sunday's loss at Seattle, wasting 182 yards rushing and two touchdowns by Adrian Peterson. As the toughest part of their schedule comes into view, the Vikings are searching for solutions to their sputtering passing attack.

Coach Leslie Frazier said Monday he hasn't thought about pulling Ponder from a game or even a series. The second-year quarterback has been bothered by a minor injury to his right knee, and he got up slowly a couple of times against the Seahawks.

But Frazier said Ponder hasn't complained about the knee and doesn't believe it's a problem.
