GIF of the game: Tolzien's twirl

The day didn't end how Packer quarterback Scott Tolzien imagined Sunday, but the journey to the end of the day wasn't as bad as the final result.

After starting his second game for Green Bay, Tolzien was yanked by head coach Mike McCarthy in the third quarter, and Matt Flynn entered to salvage a tie for the Pack.

While Tolzien didn't get the chance to finish what he started, he had a nifty highlight before departing, pulling the old spin move out of the bag of tricks on his way to a rushing touchdown.

SB Nation said of the move "the legend of Scott Tolzien begins."

A short-lived legend, but memorable nonetheless.
