The Packers’ offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 23-20 overtime loss to the Dolphins in Week Six:

Offense: Chad Clifton

Spearheading a tremendous effort by an offensive line that flawlessly protected Packers QB Aaron Rodgers — giving up zero sacks despite 35 pass attempts — Green Bay’s veteran left tackle made Minnesota’s Jared Allen a virtual nonfactor aside from the Vikings' defensive end’s early interception.    

Defense: A.J. Hawk

In addition to making a team-leading 11 tackles, the Green Bay inside linebacker's interception of a short pass by Brett Favre intended for Bernard Berrian on Minnesota’s first possession of the third quarter set up the Packers’ go-ahead score.

Special teams: Tom Crabtree

With PK Mason Crosby in effect having the night off with no field-goal attempts, and Tim Masthay kicking only two punts, there’s not much to choose from on special teams. But Crabtree did make one-third of the Packers’ six special-teams tackles.
