Week 16: Top 3 performance moments

Posted Dec 23, 2013

A quick glance at the highlights from Packers vs. Steelers


LACY CUTS BACK FOR 14-YARD TD RUN

With the score tied at 7 late in the second quarter, RB Eddie Lacy took a handoff to the right, cut back to the left into the open field and ran 14 yards for a go-ahead TD, leaping and spinning over defenders as he crossed the goal line. Lacy rushed 15 times for 84 yards in the game, surpassing John Brockington’s 42-year-old franchise single-season rookie rushing record in the process.

LATTIMORE FORCES FUMBLE NEAR GOAL LINE

Midway through the third quarter with the Packers trailing, 17-14, Green Bay pinned the Steelers on their own 2-yard line with a well-placed Tim Masthay punt. On the first snap of the series, LB A.J. Hawk met RB Le’Veon Bell in the hole, and LB Jamari Lattimore knocked the ball loose for a fumble, which CB Tramon Williams recovered. Bell was originally ruled down, but the Packers challenged, won a reversal and eventually scored a touchdown to re-take the lead.

HAWK INTERCEPTS ROETHLISBERGER TO BEGIN ANOTHER COMEBACK

Down 31-21, the Packers needed a spark, and Hawk provided it. On the final play of the third quarter, Hawk reached up with one hand and intercepted QB Ben Roethlisberger’s pass. A personal foul against the Steelers on the return put the ball on the Pittsburgh 23-yard line, and the Packers kicked a field goal to get back within one score.
