Packers’ return man Keisean Nixon continues hot start
The Green Bay Packers officially have a special teams weapon in the form of Keisean Nixon. And on Sunday, he got things started off on a good note again.
After Miami went down and kicked a field goal on the opening drive, Keisean Nixon took the ensuing kickoff 93 yards. The long return showed off Nixon’s big play ability again. It also set up Green Bay with great field position.

Since joining the Packers, Keisean Nixon has really taken advantage of his opportunity. Not only as a return man but in the nickel corner spot too. He even earned the praise of Aaron Rodgers, as well.
Rodgers told the media that during his time with the Packers, he’s never had a kick returner that teams didn’t kick too. Keisean Nixon is that guy now and it could be huge for the Packers’ future not only this season but next.
It’s just too bad the Packers had to settle for three points after the long return. Now, they need to take advantage of those opportunities more often.
