Packers 2013 Top Plays: Honorable Mentions

With the countdown halfway over, we look back at some of the plays that just didn't quite make it.

Tom Lynn

As we count down the top 10 plays of the Green Bay Packers' 2013 season during the weekdays, today we'll take a look at a few plays that just missed the cut for the top ten.

These plays were nominated for consideration and received votes, but did not get enough to quite make it into  the top ten.

Eddie Lacy's long run starts the comeback

Week 15
Opponent: Dallas Cowboys
AT&T Stadium

This one was in my personal top ten, but fell just short of making the top 10. After the Packers received the opening kickoff of the second half, Lacy broke off a 60-yard run on the first play from scrimmage to let the Cowboys know that the Packers would not go down easily.

Watch the video here.

Jermichael Finley runs over a pair of entire defenses

The next two runners-up were a pair of Jermichael Finley plays.

Week 7
Opponent: Cleveland Browns
Lambeau Field

Three broken tackles and a slick spin move on his way to the end zone earned Finley our appreciation, but not quite enough to crack the top ten with this play:


The next play was also Finley's handiwork.

Week 2
Opponent: Washington Redskins
Lambeau Field

This play did not end in a touchdown, but Finley evades or flat-out runs over three Redskins before having to be taken down by a pair of them well downfield after a huge gain.


Scott Tolzien spins his way to the end zone

Week 12
Opponent: Minnesota Vikings
Lambeau Field

Without a doubt, this was Scott Tolzien's best highlight of the 2013 season. After driving the Packers down into the red zone thanks to big receptions by John Kuhn and Jordy Nelson, Tolzien dropped back to pass, but pump-faked out an oncoming blitzer. He scrambled left, then made this ridiculous spin move to evade Letroy Guion and find his way into the end zone for a six-yard score.


Unfortunately, the legend (at least for 2013) ended at halftime, as Matt Flynn took over in the second half and led the Packers back to a tie with the Vikings.


Would you have included any of these plays over the ones you've already seen in our top 10 so far? Let us know in the comments.
