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 19-14 loss to the Chiefs in Week 15.

Offense: RB Ryan Grant

With not much to really choose from for the first time this season, Grant gets the nod for the second consecutive game after rumbling for 66 yards on 12 carries (5.5 yards per carry) and catching three passes for 35 yards.

Defense: CB Charles Woodson

Woodson provided excellent run support, registering a team-leading 11 tackles, including one exceptional tackle of Chiefs RB Jackie Battle behind the line of scrimmage that highlighted an early defensive stand in the red zone.  

Special teams: P Tim Masthay

Masthay boomed five punts for a 53.4-yard average (46.2 net), landing three of them inside the 20. He had a long punt of 71 yards.
