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.
