SALT LAKE CITY — Former BYU running back Jamaal Williams is known for his playful nature before games. Often he can be found playing catch with fans. 

On Sunday before his first NFL playoff game with Green Bay, though, the Packers’ social media staff captured a different kind of moment for the third-year back. 

This one involved Williams shaking hands with Seattle running back and seasoned postseason veteran Marshawn Lynch.

The Packers’ official Twitter account shared video of the interaction. Williams then retweeted the video on Twitter with the word “RESPECT” before Green Bay edged Seattle 28-23 to advance to next Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
