Offense: QB Aaron Rodgers

After saying he was "terrible" in the Packers' season-opening victory over the Eagles, Rodgers rebounded nicely against the Bills. After taking a little while to get totally into rhythm, Green Bay's "A-Rod" went 19-of-29 passing for 255 yards and a pair of TDs with zero interceptions and registered a 116.3 passer rating. His passer rating in the second half was 158.3, the highest rating possible. Rodgers also put his legs to good use, scrambling five times for 20 yards, including a nine-yard TD jaunt.

Defense: LOLB Clay Matthews

Talk about a no-brainer. After missing most of training camp with a hamstring injury for the second straight season, Matthews couldn't be off to a better start, becoming the first Packer in franchise history to register three sacks in consecutive games. He also had another tackle for loss and five QB hurries altogether.

Special teams: KR Jordy Nelson

For the second week in a row, Nelson did a very respectable job, averaging 30.5 yards on a pair of kickoff returns with a long of 34.
