The Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears yet again on Sunday, extending the Packers’ win streak over the Bears to five straight games – as well as extending the Packers’ win streak during the 2021 season to five games as well.
All three units had their ups and downs during the game, but all played well enough to warrant another victory.
Speaking of the three units, let’s ask the age-old question: Who were the three best players from the three individual units in the Packers’ fifth straight win?
Special teams: P Corey Bojorquez
Bojo Blast continues to be a really solid punter for the Packers. He only got the opportunity to punt three times, but amassed a total of 168 yards (including one punt that went 82 yards).
Bojorquez is justifying the Packers’ decision to move on from J.K Scott in the offseason nearly every week, while also making the Rams look crazy for trading him.
Defense: DT Kenny Clark
Honorable mention: LB Rashan Gary
Kenny Clark is backing up his huge extension from 2020 with his current level of play that he’s dishing out.
Clark played out of his mind in Week 6 against a very bad Bears offensive line, recording a team-high six pressures, two sacks and two run stops. This was arguably Clark’s best game of the season, and definitely one of the best of his entire career.
Offense: QB Aaron Rodgers
Honorable mentions: Aaron Jones, Marcedes Lewis
I try to avoid giving Aaron Rodgers this award since you can make a case that he deserves it every single week, but the Week 6 win over the Bears was definitely the doing of everybody’s favorite bad, bad man.
Rodgers, despite staying under 200 yards passing, completed 17 out of 23 passes with two of those going for touchdowns. He also had a rushing touchdown in the final minutes of the fourth quarter that would seal the victory for the Packers – which warranted an all-time, legendary reaction from Rodgers.
