The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 9-0 upset victory on the road over the Jets:

Offense: WR Greg Jennings

On a day in which Green Bay's offense managed a season-low 237 yards and only three Mason Crosby field goals, Jennings gets the nod with a decent six-catch, 81-yard effort matched up against a pair of very tough cornerbacks in Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie.      

Defense: CB Tramon Williams

Continuing to make a legitimate push for a Pro Bowl berth, Williams was responsible for two of the Packers' three takeaways with an interception and a fumble recovery. Williams also had a forced fumble, two pass breakups and five tackles and helped hold Jets WRs Santonio Holmes and Braylon Edwards in check (combined four catches for 75 yards).

Special teams: P Tim Masthay

With apologies to Crosby, who connected on 3-of-4 field-goal attempts in tough wind-swept conditions, Masthay no doubt cemented his job security with a tremendous effort, nailing eight punts for an average of 44 yards (41.5 net), with a long of 55 and five of the punts landing inside the 20.
