Three Packers awarded game balls from Miami

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 13, 2014 – 5:54 pm

GREEN BAY — The Packers coaching staff awarded three game balls from the 27-24 victory over Miami on Sunday.

On offense, the game ball went to right guard T.J. Lang, who recovered a third-down fumble by QB Aaron Rodgers on the game-winning drive, which kept the Packers alive for what turned out to be a fourth-down conversion from Rodgers to Jordy Nelson en route to the game-winning TD.

On defense, rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the recipient. The press box statistics credited Clinton-Dix with a team-high seven tackles, all solo, including one for loss and one pass broken up. Mike McCarthy said on Monday he felt Clinton-Dix played his best game to date.

On special teams, the game ball went to Micah Hyde, who had two punt returns totaling 41 yards. His 24-yard return in the second quarter came when he escaped a mass of humanity in the middle of the field, and his 17-yarder in the fourth quarter put the offense on the 40-yard line to start the final drive.

Four Packers awarded game balls vs. Jets

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 15, 2014 – 3:00 pm

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.

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.

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 31, 2013 – 8:09 pm

The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to five players for their performances at Chicago in Week 17.

CB Jarrett Bush was recognized on special teams, while WR Jordy Nelson and RB James Starks were the recipients on offense, plus CB Tramon Williams and LB Andy Mulumba on defense.

Bush had a tackle on kickoff coverage and a forced fumble on a Bears kickoff return. He also recovered a fumble by teammate Micah Hyde on a punt return.

Nelson had a career-high 10 receptions and a season-high 161 yards, while Starks had 11 rushes for 88 yards as part of the offense’s four-TD output. Nelson’s 161 yards were just one yard shy of his single-game career high, while Starks’ 88 yards were his most this season since Week 2.

Williams was credited with six total tackles (five solo) with two pass break-ups and one forced fumble. Mulumba, an undrafted rookie, had a sack among two tackles for loss and three total tackles.

Five players earn game balls vs. Cowboys

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 16, 2013 – 5:09 pm

The Packers coaching staff awarded game balls to five players for their performances against the Cowboys on Sunday.

On offense, QB Matt Flynn and RB Eddie Lacy were the recipients. Flynn completed 26 of 39 passes for 299 yards with four TDs and one INT for a 113.1 passer rating. He led the offense to five consecutive touchdown drives in the second half.

Lacy rushed 21 times for 141 yards and a TD and added 30 yards on four receptions. He went over 1,000 rushing yards for the season, and at 1,028 he’s closing in on John Brockington’s franchise rookie record of 1,105 yards set in 1971. The rushing TD was also Lacy’s eighth of the season, already a team rookie record.

On defense, CBs Sam Shields and Tramon Williams were awarded game balls. The duo combined for 14 tackles, and they each had an interception of Dallas QB Tony Romo in the last three minutes of the game.

Shields’ pick, his third of the season, gave the Packers the ball at midfield, down 36-31 with 2:46 left, and set up the go-ahead TD drive. Williams’ interception, also his third of the season, came with 1:22 left and ended any comeback hopes for the Cowboys after they had fallen behind, 37-36.

K Mason Crosby was the game-ball recipient on special teams. Crosby kicked five touchbacks on seven kickoffs and was good on a 57-yard FG, his fifth FG of 50-plus yards this season.

Four players earn game balls for win vs. Atlanta

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 10, 2013 – 10:00 am

The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to four players for their performances in the 22-21 victory over Atlanta on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

TE Andrew Quarless was honored on offense as he posted career highs with six receptions for 66 yards. Quarless also caught a 2-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter — his first touchdown since his rookie season of 2010 — that provided the winning points.

On defense, DE Johnny Jolly and CB Jarrett Bush were the recipients. Jolly was credited with a handful of tackles, including one for loss, plus a fumble recovery and a batted pass. Bush, who played the dime defensive back spot, made two huge plays down the stretch. He broke up a fourth-down pass to TE Tony Gonzalez with the Falcons on the edge of field-goal range with just under two minutes left, and then he intercepted QB Matt Ryan with four seconds left to seal the win.

S Sean Richardson received the game ball on special teams. Richardson, who got his most extensive action of the season on defense, taking over at safety for M.D. Jennings, was credited with one coverage tackle, and he was part of a solid day for the return units, as CB Micah Hyde averaged 25.3 yards on three kickoff returns and added a 12-yard punt return.

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.
