Donald Driver is one of the greatest wide receivers in Green Bay Packers history. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Pack in 2010, and his 10,137 yards are the most in franchise history.

None of those yards were as easy as the 31 he picked up on this perfect trick play in 2002.

Tight end Bubba Franks caught what looked like a routine swing pass in the backfield, but instead of running with it he pulled up and tossed the ball deep to Driver, who was standing completely unguarded in the end zone. That gave the Packers a lead heading into half time.

The 2002 season was a strong one for the Packers. They finished the regular season 12-4, and Franks wasn't the only player to find success slinging the rock, as Brett Favre put up 27 touchdowns and 3,658 yards.

Whether it comes through trickery like this or not, Packers fans will hope their offense can keep making big plays with Aaron Rodgers at the helm in the 2020 season.
