The Packers' offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week in their 25-14 Week Five victory over the Falcons.

Offense: QB Aaron Rodgers

With apologies to WR James Jones, who had one of his best games in a Packers uniform (five catches for 140 yards, including a 70-yard TD), Rodgers continued his outstanding league MVP run. Connecting with 12 different receivers, Rodgers threw for 396 yards and a pair of TDs and registered a 117.0 passer rating.

Defense: SS Charlie Peprah

Peprah had a team-leading eight tackles and a huge interception on a pass he initially tipped that halted an Atlanta drive in the fourth quarter that could have tied the game.

Special teams: PK Mason Crosby

Crosby came up big by connected on all four of his field-goal attempts, including a 56-yarder late in the first half that tied a franchise record and proved to be a big momentum turner.
