Down by 16 late in the third quarter, the Seattle Seahawks faked out the Green Bay Packers to get on the board with a Garry Gilliam touchdown in the NFC Championship. 

In one of the best plays of the game, Canadian punter Jon Ryan appeared to be setting up a field goal attempt for kicker Steven Hauschka. Instead, they pulled off the perfect fake field goal touchdown. 

The 33-year-old Regina native became the first Canadian to throw a touchdown pass in an NFL game since 1993, and the first punter to ever throw a touchdown pass in the NFL post-season.
