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
Opponent: Dallas Cowboys
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.
Jermichael Finley runs over a pair of entire defenses
The next two runners-up were a pair of Jermichael Finley plays.
Opponent: Cleveland Browns
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.
Opponent: Washington Redskins
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
Opponent: Minnesota Vikings
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.
