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.

    For now, Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel is listed as a wide receiver, but he did just as much damage as a running back and returner in college as well. That leaves his NFL future somewhat in doubt, as far as where he fits best, but that’s nothing new to this explosive, hybrid weapon.

    A first-team All-Big Ten selection two years in a row at guard, Pat Elflein was asked to move to center in 2016. How did he do? He not only was named first-team all-conference again, but he was a consensus All-American and the Rimington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center in his first year full-time at the position. So what will he play in the NFL? Guard or center?

    Penn State receiver Chris Godwin has put up some pretty good numbers, with 128 catches for just over 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns over the last two seasons. But he wants NFL teams to know his game is more than just the numbers.
