Found September 16, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

The Minnesota Vikings were getting dominated by the Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck. It was 4th and 4 in the red zone when the Vikings decided to go for it late in the fourth quarter. Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson weren’t even on the field. Christian Ponder chucked up a pass that was tipped by another player and landed in the hands of Stephen Burton. Unbelievable. Can Minnesota come back and take down the Colts? JUMP!
