Because we all can use a quick break from the day's serious stories:

Not only did the Green Bay Packers' Randall Cobb last night become the first guy born in the 1990s to play in an NFL regular season game, he also tied a league record when he ran a kickoff back 108 yards to score a touchdown.

Cobb's team beat the New Orleans Saints 42-34.

Here's the 21-year-old rookie's touchdown run.
