The NFC North rivalry between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears has delivered on countless legendary NFL moments over the years. Christian Ponder may not be the first quarterback that comes to mind when you think of the greatest Vikes to field the position, but he did make one play that Minnesota fans won't soon forget.

Ponder was a scrambler at times, but he was also a quarterback with a career sack percentage of 8.2 with 20 fumbles over 38 games. Let us not forget that Lance Briggs had almost 1,200 combined tackles during his tenure, and was he one of the most feared linebackers of his time.

That's what truly made this Madden-like truck stick run by Ponder so jaw-dropping. I mean, he lays the shoulder down like Cam Newton in his prime and Briggs goes flying like a rag doll.

Ponder may go down as an all-time Vikings bust, from first-round pick to less than four full seasons in the league, but he will always have at least one GOAT play on his résumé. After all, let's just be honest, not many people will be having nightmares about this QB years later, except for, perhaps, Mr. Briggs.
