Walden named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Posted by Tom Fanning on January 5, 2011 – 10:34 am

Packers linebacker Erik Walden was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Chicago Bears this past Sunday.

Walden, who signed with the team as a free agent on Oct. 27, posted the first sacks of his three-year career as he brought down Bears QB Jay Cutler twice in a 10-3 victory that clinched a playoff berth for the Packers.

Walden also recorded a career-high 16 tackles (12 solo), which matched the best total posted by any Packer defender in a game this season. He was part of a defense that limited Cutler to just a 43.5 passer rating as he completed 21-of-39 passes for 168 yards and no TDs with two INTs. It was the third time in the past nine games that the Packers prevented their opponent from scoring a touchdown.

Walden’s two sacks were part of a six-sack day for the Packers, which matched their single-game season high (Week 1, at Philadelphia). It brought Green Bay’s season total to 47, which was tied for No. 2 in the league. That is the best ranking by a Packers team in franchise history.
