The Packers’ offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 21-16 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia:

Offense: RB James Starks

Starks was a driving force from the get-go, providing Green Bay’s offense with badly needed balance on 23 carries for 123 yards (5.3 ypc) and a long of 27. He also had two catches for nine yards and a kickoff return for 20 yards.

Defense: CB Tramon Williams

Williams sealed the deal with a leaping interception in the endzone in front of intended receiver Riley Cooper with the clock winding down, in addition to holding the dangerous DeSean Jackson in check with only two catches for 47 yards.   

Special teams: P Tim Masthay

While not as effective as he was last week against the Bears, Masthay made sure Jackson would not be a force returning punts, limiting the Philly Pro Bowler to one return for only 14 yards.
