PFW executive editor and resident Packers expert Dan Arkush selects Green Bay's players of the week on offense, defense and special teams in the team's 24-3 Week Six victory over the Rams.

Offense: QB Aaron Rodgers

Doing most of his damage in the first half, Rodgers continued to spread the ball around effectively against the Rams, throwing for 310 yards and three TDs to three different receivers while registering a 119.6 passer rating. Rogers also had seven carries for 15 yards with a long gain of nine.

Defense: CB Sam Shields

Green Bay's defense kept the Rams out of the endzone despite surrendering a whopping 424 yards. The Rams' best shot at a score went up in smoke when Shields picked off Sam Bradford in the endzone. Shields also had five tackles.

Special teams: PK Mason Crosby

Crosby is a perfect 10-for-10 on field goals this season after kicking a 32-yarder for Green Bay's first score of the game. He also had three touchbacks in five kickoffs.
