Donald Driver Gave Up Touchdown To Randall Cobb

Tweet This!

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver holds the franchise's receptions and receiving yards records. And in Week 9, he could've extended his record by getting one more catch but chose to let fellow wideout Randall Cobb lineup in his spot.

In the first quarter of the game against the Arizona Cardinals the Packers were 13 yards out from scoring. Aaron Rodgers called Driver's number on a slant play. When Green Bay broke the huddle, Driver overruled Rodgers and called Cobb's number.

"When we broke the huddle I was getting ready to line up," Cobb said. "He pushed me and said, 'Go ahead and go get it kid.' "

So instead of Rodgers hitting Driver in the chest with a laser, it was Cobb. The touchdown still wasn't a gimmie—Cobb had to beat Patrick Peterson on the play and dart past two defenders and spin off a hit by Adrian Wilson before rolling into the end-zone. 

You can see the play here at the 0:26 mark:

Fantasy owners who played Driver in Week 9 are not reading this the same way as Cobb owners are. Either way, it's refreshing to see a Pro Bowl veteran like Driver boosting a budding talent like Cobb.
