The Packers’ offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 31-27 loss to the Patriots in Week 15:

Offense: QB Matt Flynn

In his first pro start on a national stage, Flynn more than held his own matched up against likely league MVP Tom Brady, completing 24-of-37 passes for 251 yards. Flynn had three TDs to three different receivers, one interception and a 100.2 passer rating.

Defense: NT B.J. Raji

Raji continued his rock-solid play on the nose, registering four tackles, including a pair of sacks for 17 yards in losses and two tackles that stopped BenJarvus Green-Ellis for no gain.  

Special teams: P Tim Masthay

Masthay was dependable for the second week in a row, with four punts averaging 41.3 yards (38.5 net), with a long of 58 and two punts inside the 20-yard line. New England had three punt returns for only 11 yards.
