Football experts widely panned Gary Kubiak’s decision to select a fullback out of Nebraska in the NFL Draft, even in the sixth round. On his first official carry in the NFL, Andy Janovich proved Kubiak to be a genius.

The 23-year-old former Nebraska Cornhusker buried his head against a stout Carolina Panthers defense and busted loose for a 28-yard touchdown run.

Janovich was essential on the play prior, which set up the touchdown. The fullback helped spring C.J. Anderson for 28 yards as well, leveling a huge block at the line to spring his backfield partner.
