Five game balls awarded vs. Lions

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 7, 2013 – 3:00 pm

Game balls

The Packers coaching staff on Monday awarded five games balls to players for their performances in the 22-9 victory over the Lions at Lambeau Field.

On offense, guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton were awarded game balls for their blocking against Detroit DTs Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley.

On defense, outside linebackers Nick Perry and Mike Neal were the recipients. Perry had the first two-sack game of his career, while Neal added a sack and two other tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

On special teams, kicker Mason Crosby was awarded a game ball for his 5-for-5 effort on field goals. Crosby made kicks from 26, 52, 31, 42 and 45 yards, tying the franchise record for made field goals in a game.

    Exciting times for our Defense. Perry and Neal becoming dominant players, forcing teams to not game-plan solely on stopping Clay. Great, well deserved win. In the words of Vic Ketchman; ‘look out’

    I saw a comment, the Lion’s would have won, if they had their “star” wide receiver. Wooda shoudda-coudda!!! We have players down also. BUT, all our players are “stars.” so the table was set leaning in the Lion’s favor. If their “Star Wide Receiver” (I think his name is “Mega-Tron) will be healthy when we meet them again in Detroit. Our “Stars” in our Def. back field will be able to handle him.

    I am exceptionally happy to see Crosby get back in a groove! I didn’t think he was going to last after his performance last season, but I was proven wrong and I am now happy McCarthy stuck with him. The O-Line is looking so good with run blocking right now. Awesome!

    Congratulations to all the recipients. Those recognized were very deserving of it.

    Now, let’s show the city with the first armed police force in the U.S., that we have a few offensive weapons of our own. We can’t go to the SB until we knock-off the defending champs.

    Go Pack!!

    I agree with Thomas’ congrats. Honorable mention to Burnett who helped make our secondary look like it could finally cover more than turtles. And to Lacy as well for carrying the running load without a hickup.

    That’s Cool, I would like one…… I couldn’t see the game in Ohio. Ticked Off. Also last week a game on FOX Sport’s channel and they switched games because it was a tighter game. Any body else have that problem ?

    I’ve had to listen to the last 2 games on Sirius Radio on the computer. Sure would be nice to see it. I have to wait ’til (when no other games are on) I can watch them on NFL GameRewind.

    I was happy for all game ball recipients, but I really think that A. J. should also have gotten a game ball.

    Glad to see Mason is making FGs consistently. Five in a row is a good start. He certainly deserved the game ball. Only thing is it would be better seeing 7 than 3. Glad to see he turned it around.

    I’m in central Illinois so all we get are the bears, colts and rams. So each week I watch a live stream on first row sports.

    To Turner and OKGOPACK I watch all Packer games at the Bridgetender Inn, on Anna Marie Island. It’s a Packer Bar here in Florida and there is a site on Packers.com where you can find these locations in your area. Good Luck. Great to see linemen get a game ball keep up the great line work it all starts there! Go Pack
