Entire offense, Daniels, Crosby awarded game balls vs. Minnesota

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 30, 2013 – 9:00 am


The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to the entire offense, to DE Mike Daniels and to K Mason Crosby from the 44-31 victory at Minnesota.

The offense scored every time it touched the ball — five touchdowns and three field goals — until kneeling down on its final possession. The Packers piled up 464 total yards — 285 passing from QB Aaron Rodgers and 182 rushing, with RBs Eddie Lacy (94 yards) and James Starks (57) combining for 151 of those. WR Jordy Nelson had seven receptions for 123 yards, including a 76-yard TD.

Daniels, the second-year defensive end from Iowa, was the game-ball recipient on defense. Daniels sacked Minnesota QB Christian Ponder twice, the first two-sack game of Daniels’ career. The effort doubled his season sack total to four.

Crosby, the special teams award winner, was 3-for-3 on field goals, from 30, 20 and 45 yards, and made all five of his PATs for 14 total points. Crosby also took over on kickoffs after the Vikings’ Cordarrelle Patterson returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. Crosby’s directional kickoffs helped to keep Patterson in check the rest of the game.

    What about Micah Hyde?

    Daniels: it’s about time!!. He has been playing great this year but flies under the radar because of the stellar overall play of the entire D-line. He will become even more of a standout as the season progresses. He is not just a sack guy. He’s a tough guy, running back nailer who could lead the team in sacks this year. Keep watching, it gets better!.

    I think the entire Defensive line along with Micah Hyde deserves game balls! That 93 yard punt-return TD capped off an amazing and fast first half of play! The Defensive line deserves game balls because they held Peterson to ONLY 60 yards!

    Bet they had a hard time deciding where the game balls were going to go this week. Just about everyone deserved it.

    Glad to see Mason Crosby back at his best and the article didn’t mention he’s a pretty good tackler when required.

    Hyde didn’t get a game ball, I suspect, because he missed the tackle on the opening kickoff.

    David Bakhtiari did a great job on Jerod Allen. On the side lines it looked like Jerod Allen did’nt know what hit him.

    Where oh where is Daytone Jones? For a good few years now we’ve had far better results from our post 1st round picks.

    I suspect that Hyde atoned for the missed tackle with a punt return for TD. He’s still only a rookine with 7 games under his belt but I like what I see.

    And by the way, Considering all the injuries, it must be disruptive with all the changes to the special teams units.

    Probably the reason Micah didn’t get a gameball is because he missed the tackle on Patterson’s return. He made up for it with a return of his own but that’s probably the reasoning behind it.
