The Green Bay Packers are rolling right now. Winners of four straight games, Aaron Rodgers and the Pack have a chance to get into the playoffs in the final week of the season after appearing dead in the water at multiple points.

While stars like Christian Watson have emerged this season on the offensive side of the ball, Green Bay may have a new star on special teams too. Keisean Nixon is quickly becoming a crucial part of the Packers' unit and Matt LaFleur wants to do whatever he can to get the ball in his hands.

When asked about this, LaFleur had a badass response.

Just in the last two weeks, he has made game-changing plays on the return team. Last week he returned a kick 93 yards and then in Week 17 he brought one back all the way for a touchdown en route to a huge Packers win.

With their playoff lives on the line and Nixon returning kicks, the Packers are currently 4.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
