Winner: Kenny Clark
What more can we say about Kenny Clark? He is a game-changer. We can talk about the rookies making an impact on defense, and understandably so, but Clark is still leading the way along the defensive line.
Clark ended the game with a pass breakup on fourth down, and he forced a fumble at the Packers' three-yard line to save a potential touchdown. According to Pro Football Focus, Clark had eight quarterback pressures in the game. It was a dominant display from the two-time Pro Bowler.
Winner: Carrington Valentine
It's hard to believe Carrington Valentine is a seventh-round rookie cornerback. With Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes injured and Rasul Douglas no longer in Green Bay, Valentine was the Packers' No. 1 outside corner. He faced the daunting prospect of guarding five-time Pro Bowl receiver Keenan Allen and first-round pick Quentin Johnston.
Sure, Valentine wasn't perfect. Johnston beat him on a potential game-winning touchdown but dropped the ball. But what cornerback wouldn't give up plays in this matchup? Especially a seventh-round rookie.
Valentine did so much well. He broke up three passes for the second time in three weeks. The aggressiveness and confidence Valentine plays with is admirable. It's only a matter of time before he gets his first career interception.
The Packers landed a draft-day steal with Valentine in the seventh round. He continues to make an impact.
