Found October 29, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Vick Ballard rushed 12 times for 55 yards and added the game-winning 16-yard touchdown in overtime at Tennessee in Week 8. Ballard started and handled all of the carries on the opening drive, but gave way to a rotation with Donald Brown the rest of the way. Delone Carter functioned as the goal-line back. Ballard sold out his body at the end of a throw-back screen, twisting on a magnificent backwards dive to hit the pylon on what may go down as the touchdown of the year in the NFL. Ballard has emerged as a consistent back for the Colts.  His touchdown was an amazing play and should have been ESPN Plays of the Week.
