The Packers coaching staff awarded four game balls to players for their individual performances in the 31-13 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

On offense, the honor went to WR Jarrett Boykin, who led the team with eight catches for 103 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown. It was Boykin’s first career 100-yard game and first career TD, all coming in his first career start.

On defense, game balls were awarded to CB Davon House and LB Jamari Lattimore. House snagged his first career interception on an early fourth-and-1, and later in the game, he broke up two passes around the goal line, one on a fourth-and-15 deep throw intended for WR Josh Gordon.

Lattimore led the defense with nine solo tackles and 12 total tackles, including his first pro sack and a deflected pass.

On special teams, CB Micah Hyde received recognition for his 18-yard punt return early in the game to help set up Green Bay’s first touchdown, and for two tackles on the coverage units, including one of Browns KR Travis Benjamin to prevent a TD at the end of a long return.

    Nothing like seeing guys out there hustling and tackling.
    So good to see that and keeping their heads in the game and not letting anyone get behind them.
    Keep up the good work boys!!!!

    Micah Hyde’s true 40 time might not be as slow as we initially thought?

    Those mentioned and the defense as a whole shined yesterday against a statistically good Browns team. Congrats. The Special Team needs work however. Next test comes next week in the dome where things always seem to get dicey. Go Pack!

    Can’t say enough about the job Jarrett Boykin did yesterday. The team needed him to step up and the kid responded big time! When Jones and Cobb get back, our WR corps is going to be ridiculously good for the playoffs!

    I was really wrapped in what I saw of Boykin last year & even though he had a few drops & nerves…glad things worked out for him in the end. Looking forward to the rest of his season….

    Ted Thompson does not deserve the criticism that he gets, for not getting older guys, these guys are young, so who knows what they can do.

    Once again Ted Thompson shows he knows his stuff.

    It was great seeing Hyde catch that 4.3 guy from behind. The announcer was really shocked! LOL, It just goes to show people that some guys run faster playing football than on timed on a track.

    Best guy on the team seems to clearly be Ted Thompson. Followed closely by the coach ‘em up quick team they have in GB. Get well quickly to all the guys with injuries, But you can afford to take a little time if you need it.
