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 46-16 Week 14 victory over the Raiders.

Offense: RB Ryan Grant

With James Starks sidelined with an ankle injury, Grant stepped up and rediscovered his big-play form, rushing 10 times for 85 yards and a pair of TDs. Grant's 47-yard romp into the endzone two plays after Raiders QB Carson Palmer threw an interception on Oakland's first possession produced the Packers' first score of the day. He also had a six-yard TD run in the second quarter.

Defense: BLB Rob Francois

Making his second consecutive start, Francois registered nine tackles, an interception, a pass breakup and a forced fumble.  

Special teams: PK Mason Crosby

Crosby connected on all four field-goal attempts — from 34, 38, 49 and 33 yards — and seven of his 11 kickoffs resulted in touchbacks. He did have one small glitch when one of his five point-after tries was blocked.
