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 37-20 divisional playoff loss to the Giants

Offense: WR Donald Driver

The gritty veteran was at least one Packers receiver who managed to hang onto the ball, catching three passes (on three targets) for 45 yards and a 16-yard TD, in addition to setting the franchise record for postseason receptions. Driver's other two catches resulted in key third-down conversions.

Defense: FS Morgan Burnett

Burnett certainly came to play, stopping one drive with an interception. He deftly broke up two other passes and registered four tackles.

Special teams: OLB Brad Jones

Jones blocked a field-goal attempt in the second quarter. He also pushed Burnett for Top Defensive Player honors with a sack, a tackle for loss and two QB hits as the starting right outside linebacker.
