Doing what the Vikings did here normally isn't the right call. But Adrian Peterson isn't a normal guy, and if you got to make a touchdown with less than 10 seconds left, no timeouts, and a Christian Ponder, you'd take your chances. The gamble worked here as Peterson took the QB draw and dove his way into the end zone to close the half down 24-17 against the Packers.
The Packers would go on to light up the Vikings in the ensuing two quarters with Minnesota's own biggest weaponâ€”the run game. James Starks and Eddie Lacy combined for over 150 yards as the Packers lead the Vikings 41-24.
The Packers ended up winning, 44-31.
