Keisean Nixon has made a massive name for himself in a short time for the Green Bay Packers. It is hard to find someone who has made such an impact on special teams for the Packers since Desmond Howard in the 1990s. Nixon has instantly made the special teams a weapon for the Packers. That is a far cry from the liability they seemed to be in 2021. Nixon has been so incredible that he holds a statistic that hasn’t been done since the year 2000.
Keisean Nixon Holds Streak That Hasn’t Been Done In 22 Years
Per Field Yates, Keisean Nixon has an incredible streak running:
Packers DB/KR Keisean Nixon had a 91-yard kickoff return on Christmas and a 105-yard kickoff return TD yesterday. He now has 7 straight games with at least 90 total kickoff return yards, the longest streak in the NFL since 2000. He’s been a massive spark plug for Green Bay.
Seven straight games with at least 90 total kickoff return yards is absurd. It is especially absurd given where the Packers’ Special Teams were just one year ago. Here is the epic video of his kickoff return touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday:

The Packers next opponent? The Detroit Lions. They will play the final game of Week 18, and it will be a big one. Lions-Packers on SNF means Detroit will know before kickoff if they have a chance at making the playoffs. A Seattle wins eliminates Detroit and they’ll only be playing to try to ruin Green Bay’s season. A Seattle loss means Detroit and Green Bay go at it for the final playoff spot in the NFC. This will be the biggest game in the Packers-Lions rivalry of recent memory.
