GREEN BAY – The votes are in, and now there's one more vote to cast.

The winners of each of the four categories in Signature Snaps are presented here for Play of the Year for 2014.

Be sure to watch the video and vote for your choice.

Top running play

Eddie Lacy, 44-yard TD at Tampa Bay, Week 16

Late in a scoreless first quarter, Lacy took a handoff to the left, broke one tackle at the line of scrimmage and was off to the races to give the Packers the early lead against the Buccaneers. This became the longest touchdown run of Lacy's career.

Top passing play

Jordy Nelson, 45-yard TD vs. New England, Week 13

Hounded by star Patriots CB Darrelle Revis most of the first half, Nelson finally got away from him. After catching Rodgers' pass over the middle, Nelson cut to the left and took off for the pylon, diving for a touchdown to put the Packers ahead, 23-14, with just 14 seconds left in the half. The Packers would go on to beat the eventual Super Bowl champs, 26-21.

Top defensive play

Julius Peppers, forced fumble vs. Dallas, NFC divisional

With the Packers trailing in the third quarter, 14-10, Peppers possibly saved this playoff game. Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray was about to run through a huge hole to his right when Peppers got an arm on him and stripped the ball. Instead of giving up a possible 59-yard TD run, the Packers got the ball back as DE Datone Jones recovered and Green Bay kicked a field goal to climb a little closer.

Top special teams play

Micah Hyde, 55-yard punt-return TD vs. Detroit, Week 17

The Packers had just gotten stuffed at the goal line on their first offensive series of the game, but the defense held and forced the Lions to punt from their own end zone. Hyde took this one to the house for the first points of the game and his third career punt-return TD, tying the franchise career record also held by Desmond Howard and Will Blackmon.
