Former UK punter Tim Masthay throws TD pass

Who knew that the first former Kentucky football player to throw an NFL touchdown pass since 2003 would be Tim Masthay?

The Green Bay Packers punter and holder executed a perfect fake field goal attempt in Green Bay's 23-10 win over the Chicago Bears.

Late in the second quarter, Masthay took the snap for what appeared to be a field goal. Instead, Masthay flipped the ball to backup tight end Tim Crabtree, who raced 27 yards for the touchdown that put the Packers up 10-0 with 1:50 left in the half.

Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby then made a 35-yard field goal on the final play of the half to stretch the lead to 13-0 at intermission.

As Jon Hale of KyForward points out, Tim Couch was the last UK player to throw a touchdown pass in the NFL and that was in 2003.
