Winner: Jayden Reed

Jayden Reed is a star. He left the game with a chest injury and didn't return, but not before he put the Packers in control of the game. Reed caught six passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns while setting a new franchise record for most receptions in a season by a rookie.

Reed's first touchdown was one of the Packers' best all season. Jordan Love threw a picture-perfect pass in the middle of the field to Reed for a 33-yard score. Reed made an excellent play, but he was even better on his second touchdown, breaking multiple tackles to turn a short gain into a 25-yard touchdown.

Loser: Samori Toure

It was another missed opportunity for Samori Toure, leaving his long-term future with the Packers in doubt.

When Green Bay's receiving corps is at full strength, Christian Watson, Jayden Reed, Romeo Doubs, and Dontayvion Wicks are all ahead of Toure. In recent weeks, Bo Melton and Malik Heath have also seemingly moved ahead of Toure on the depth chart.

Toure had one catch for minus-six yards and muffed a punt that led to Minnesota's only touchdown. The second-year receiver has failed to make an impact this season, and things got worse in Week 17.
