Carlos Hyde had one a heck of a Thursday, involving two birthdays, two touchdowns, and one monumental win.

The former Buckeye and current Browns running back spent much of his day in the hospital awaiting the birth of his first child, before going straight from the hospital to the stadium in time for Cleveland's Thursday night game against the New York Jets.

Hyde made it to the game, and was instrumental in the Browns' first win in 635 days, scoring the team's only two touchdowns in the 21-17 victory and rushing for 98 yards.

For his first touchdown, Hyde had an extremely fitting celebration.

Hyde didn't stick around long to celebrate – he hurried right back to the hospital for the birth of his son, Carlos Hyde Jr.

To top it all off, Thursday was also Hyde's own 28th birthday.

Sounds like a wild day, but not one that he'd trade for the world.
