All game, you sort of had the feeling that the battle in Green Bay between the Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers would turn into a classic, especially with all the implications on the line, and that it did.

In the fourth quarter, following a costly Matt Flynn fumble, the Steelers put the ball in the end zone on a one-yard Le’Veon Bell touchdown run to give Pittsburgh the 38-31 lead, putting the Packers’ playoff hopes in serious jeopardy.

Well, on the ensuing kickoff, rookie Micah Hyde out of Iowa did everything in his power to put his team in a position to see that that would not end up being the case.

The rookie took the ball and proceeded to scamper his way 71 yards down the right sideline to put his offense in great position to potentially tie the game up:

Unfortunately, though, the Packers offense couldn’t capitalize on Hyde’s efforts as they weren’t able to get the ball in the end zone and the Steelers left with the victory.
