The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 28-26 victory over the division-rival Lions in Week Four:

Offense: Jon Kuhn

The Packers' burly running back was a life saver in Green Bay's final possession of the game. With his team clinging to a two-point lead and needing to keep the Lions' offense off the field for one more last-ditch attempt at pulling off an upset, Kuhn steamrolled for 34 of his 39 rushing yards for the day, picking up three crucial first downs, including an eight-yard rumble on 3rd-and-7 that pretty much sealed the deal.   

Defense: Charles Woodson

Not only did Woodson register a team-leading 13 tackles, three pass breakups and a 48-yard TD for an interception. He also came up huge on the Lions' final possession of the game after Alphonso Smith's brilliant interception, tackling RB Jahvid Best after a one-yard run and breaking up a pair of passes intended for Calvin Johnson that stopped the surging Lions dead in their tracks and forced a punt.

Special teams: Nobody

It's hard to acknowledge any of the Packers special-teamers in a second consecutive shoddy outing earmarked by two fumbled returns by KR Jordy Nelson and a 21-yard punt by Tim Masthay in the first quarter that brought the boo-birds out big time at Lambeau Field.
