It's been an incredible 24 hours for Carlos Hyde. The Cleveland Browns running back celebrated his birthday on Thursday - the same night his Browns were scheduled to play the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football.

Hyde rushed from the hospital to the field before Thursday night's game. The star running back was expecting the birth of his son on Thursday night - as if celebrating his own birthday wasn't enough.

The former Ohio State star warmed up for the game and put on a show, rushing for nearly 100 yards and two touchdowns on the night. Hyde helped Cleveland to its first win in 635 days after taking down the New York Jets by a final score of 21-17.

He then rushed back to the hospital for the birth of his son. On Friday morning, Hyde announced the birth of Carlos Hyde Jr., who weighed in at eight pounds, 11 ounces.

Congratulations to the Hyde family!
