The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 23-20 overtime loss to the Dolphins in Week Six:
Offense: Greg Jennings
After admitting leading up to the Miami game how frustrated he was over his relative lack of involvement in the Packers' offense, Jennings had a big game against the Dolphins. Green Bay's No. 1 receiver caught six of the seven passes thrown his way for 133 yards, including an 86-yard TD catch on a deep post route, on which he made a beautiful move, with 1:03 remaining in the first quarter.
Defense: B.J. Raji
The Packers' second-year nose tackle gets the nod ever so slightly over CB Tramon Williams after registering his second straight superlative performance. Raji led the Packers' defensive linemen with seven tackles, including one tackle for loss, and also contributed a key pass deflection on Miami's first possession of the fourth quarter. Williams also had seven tackles and added an interception on a pass intended for Miami's Brandon Marshall that put the clamps on a Dolphin scoring drive late in the first quarter. The Packers responded on the next play with the TD pass to Jennings.
Special teams: Mason Crosby
The Packers' placekicker nailed his only two field-goal attempts of 46 and 26 yards and also came up with a TD-saving tackle on a kickoff return by Miami's Nolan Carroll early in the fourth quarter.
