The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to four players for their performances in the 31-24 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.
Game balls went to WR Jordy Nelson on offense, DT Mike Daniels on defense and K Mason Crosby and LB Andy Mulumba on special teams.
Nelson set a career high with 209 receiving yards, including an 80-yard TD that broke a 24-all tie. He became the first Packers player with a 200-yard receiving game since 2004, and his 209 yards tied him for the fourth-highest single-game total in franchise history. Nelson’s 80-yard TD also tied him with Greg Jennings for the most TD receptions of 80-plus yards in a Packers career (four).
Daniels was a disruptive force all game, being credited (press box statistics) with five solo tackles, including two for loss, and a sack. His hit on Jets QB Geno Smith in the second quarter produced a fluttering pass that was picked off by CB Tramon Williams.
Crosby made all three of his FG attempts, including a 55-yarder that was the longest by a Packers kicker ever at Lambeau Field. He has now made 18 straight FGs, dating back to last season. Crosby also kicked four of seven kickoffs for touchbacks.
Mulumba was credited with one special teams tackle but later left the game with a knee injury.
