Dan Connolly almost breaks one...

This, was pretty funny. You just don't see offensive lineman break long runs...pretty much ever. But yet in Sunday nights Packers/Patriots game, that's exactly what happens.

Here's your set up. The Packers have just scored and are about to kick off to the Patriots, the kicker, Mason Crosby hits a grounder that is scooped up by wedge blocker/guard Dan Connelly. Connelly proceeds to bust out of the pack and go 71 yards before he's finally tackled.

Yeah, it's pretty funny...and slow, but hey, it's a big return and as Chris Collinsworth said, probably a career highlight.

Here's your video before it gets pulled.
