The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 27-17 Week Three victory over the Bears in Chicago:

Offense: TE Jermichael Finley

Operating against an undermanned Bears safety corps, Finley caught seven of the eight passes thrown his way for 85 yards and had TD catches of six, seven and 10 yards.

Defense: FS Morgan Burnett

Switching from strong safety to replace the injured Nick Collins, Burnett continued to arguably be the Packers' best overall defender early in the season. He had five tackles and a pair of interceptions.

Special teams: P Tim Masthay

Masthay wasn't anything special with six punts averaging 38.2 yards (33.2 net) and only one punt inside the 20-yard line. But unlike last year's Week Three game against the Bears, Chicago star RS Devin Hester was a nonfactor with one fair catch and only one punt return for 21 yards.
