The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 20-17 loss in overtime to the Bears in Week Three:
Offense: Aaron Rodgers
The Packers' quarterback outperformed Bears counterpart Jay Cutler, completing 34-of-45 passes for 316 yards, one TD and one interception for a 92.5 passer rating. He also had two runs for 20 yards, including a three-yard touchdown, and was much more responsible than his offensive line for Green Bay's zero sacks allowed due to his deft scrambling.
Defense: Tramon Williams
Continuing to do a solid job in place of injured CB Al Harris, Williams had a team-leading seven tackles, one of the team's three sacks, two tackles for loss and one QB hurry. He also was not penalized — unlike 13 of his teammates in the Monday-night flagfest.
Special teams: Jordy Nelson
On an otherwise miserable night for the Packers' special teams, Nelson continued to do a respectable job returning kickoffs with five for 97 yards (19.4-yard average), including a long of 40.
