The Packers went down to the wire with the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, something that I never would even think could have happened, but it did. And the Packers, slacking all game, decided to do what they do best and pull the victory off no matter what it takes, with a few players stepping up to steal Cleveland’s first win right out of their hands. Let’s get this started by giving 7 another game ball this season.

 

Brett Hundley

This game could have been the last time we see Hundley play in a Packers uniform, but I sincerely hope not, because I like him as a backup. He performs when it is necessary and that is something that cannot be taught. He finished the game with 265 yards on 35/46 passing and 3TDs, all of them being extremely clutch.

He opened the game up with a wide open TD to Jamaal Williams, who again was a big factor but did not get a game ball. He threw his last 2 to Davante Adams to send the game to OT then to win it in OT. Hundley added 31 yards on the ground, propelling the Packers to their 4th quarter, 14 point turnaround to send the game to overtime. He gets a game ball.

 

Davante Adams

Adams is without a doubt the future of Green Bay’s WR position. This offseason the Packers need to secure him on a nice long contract so we can ensure that he will not be doing the great things he does for the team for anybody else. Adams had a monster of a game and a monster of a season so far. With 10 catches for 84 yards and 2TDs, Adams looked unstoppable this game.

He helped send the game to overtime on a beautiful back shoulder throw from Hundley and then won it all on a screen pass, never touching the field again. He gets another game ball this season.

 

Clay Matthews

Say what you want about his “declining performance” but Matthews is a playmaker, even if his stats don’t show it. He always has been and he always will be one of the best linebackers in the league, and he is usually playing inside, away from his normal position.

Finishing the game with 1 sack and pressuring and hitting Kizer’s arm in OT to force an interception is more than enough to get him a game ball. Against the team that his father played for, Clay was able to save the Packers’ season with his playmaking abilities. This is his second game ball in 2 weeks.

The Packers looked shaky but again performed when it mattered. With another win in the books, the Pack still need 3 more to have a chance at the playoffs. Who will be crucial in the next 3 games (aside from AR12) to help the team make the playoffs?
