Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin had one of the most unconventional touchdowns of the season in Sunday's game against the Bears.

The play started late in the second quarter with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropping back to pass, before being hit from behind by Bears defensive end Julius Peppers. As the ball flew forward and then onto the ground after the hit, virtually every player on the field assumed it was an incomplete pass.

However, after Bears linebacker James Anderson ran past the ball, several seconds went by before Boykin scooped up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown. No whistle had been blown, and the play was eventually ruled a fumble by Rodgers and touchdown by Boykin. 

Boykin picks up the ball, realizes no whistle had been blown, and runs it in for a touchdown.

Packers coaches and players signaling for Boykin to run the ball into the end zone. 

After review, the ruling of a touchdown on the field was upheld.
