Aaron Rodgers has pulled off a seemingly endless amount of incredible plays over the course of his NFL career. While this Week 6 play from 2014 wasn't exactly one of his more consequential plays, it does indicate just how special Rodgers can be when he's allowed to improvise, and go off the beaten path a bit.

With just about 11 seconds left in the game at the time of the snap, everyone in the building assumed the spike was coming. Even the announcer said "Here comes the spike."

Famously, however, Rodgers faked the spike, seamlessly completing a pass to Davante Adams. That got the Pack inside the 5-yard line, and set up the game-winning touchdown on the next play.

Rodgers has always been one of best off-script quarterbacks in the league, and it's hard to imagine anyone executing this awesome drive better than he did.
