VIDEO: Vikings Try Flea-Flicker, It's Picked Off

The Minnesota Vikings are pulling out all the stops to try and catch up with the Green Bay Packers and their 14-0 lead. Rookie quarterback Christian Ponder had a nice scramble on 3rd-and-1 to pick up the first down on the drive. Two plays later however, the drive ended when the Vikings tried this:

Adrian Peterson flipped the ball back to Ponder, who chucked the ball deep down the field into the middle of the field only to have it picked off by Tramon Williams. The pass was intended for Devin Aromashodu, but he had two Packer defenders with him on the clearly pre-determined throw. Luckily for the Vikings, the Packers couldn't capitalize on the turnover and punted the ball back to the Vikings.
