VIDEO: Remembering When Scott Tolzien Embarrassed the Vikings Defense With a Nasty Touchdown Run
There's been some amazing moments in the old NFC North rivalry between the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. There have also been some massive names in this rivalry, but they should not overshadowed the ridiculous display from quarterback Scott Tolzien, as we embarrassed a Vikings defense with his legs.

Now, Tolzien is not known to be an athletic, mobile quarterback. However, some divine intervention kicked in, as the former Wisconsin Badgers QB put the state on his back and pulled off one of the craziest runs by a Packers quarterback in recent memory.
When things aren't working with your arm, use your legs. That must have been what crossed Tolzien's mind after faking out a Vikings defender 10 yards in the backfield. He then followed his blockers, set up a defender with a stutter step and spun back into the field for a touchdown. Lamar Jackson who?
Now, this isolated moment nearly solidified Tolzien among the Packers quarterback greats, alone. Bart Starr, Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers... Tolzien. Unfortunately, the run was not enough – not even close really. He completed just seven passes on the day for 98 yards. The game ended in a 26-26 tie, which sometimes feels worse than a loss.
