GREEN BAY — Four Packers players were awarded game balls by the coaching staff for their performances in Green Bay’s 38-17 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
On offense, the game balls went to offensive tackles Bryan Bulaga and David Bakhtiari. Their blocking on the edges contributed to RBs Eddie Lacy and James Starks averaging better than five yards per carry each, while QB Aaron Rodgers posted a lofty 154.5 passer rating.
On defense, a game ball went to CB Casey Hayward, who intercepted a pass for the second straight game. Hayward now has eight interceptions in his career.
On special teams, a game ball went to veteran Jarrett Bush, who played 26 snaps on special teams alone and posted a season-high three coverage tackles.
