The Green Bay Packers recovered from an unforgettable trip to Los Angeles with a memorable victory over the Carolina Panthers on a snow-covered Lambeau Field in Week 10.
Matt LaFleur's team is now 8-2 and in possession of a front-runner. two seeds in the NFC arriving in bye week.
Here are the bolts and types from the Packers Victory:
DL Kenny Clark : Statement game from No. 97. He was one step away from at least three sacks, and he stood in at least eight different passing matches in the background. The Panthers often tried to block him one on one with Matt Paradis, but that was a big mistake. Clark was too strong and too fast. In the second game of Scrimmage Clark went with Paradis backfield and defeated Christian McCaffrey after a short win. Later he diagnosed the third-down screen and was the first defender to stop there. He's going to think about those missed bags during Bye week, but do not be surprised if he explodes into a bagged game in the last six weeks.
OL Elgton Jenkins: ] Another outstanding achievement of the rookie offensive lineman. He allowed no pressure and was the primary hole opener in several explosive runs. On rank 3 and 9 of the Packers' first touchdown, Jenkins looked good, but recovered, giving up the stunt and completely eliminating rookie Brian Burns. His block at the point of attack opened the first touchdown run by Aaron Jones. In the third quarter, he dominated. Several Jamaal Williams chunk runs occurred behind Jenkins' blockage.
WR Davante Adams: A week after Adams had scored only 41
OLB Za'Darius Smith: It's hard to believe he did not have a sack. Several times he won immediately, but could not bring Kyle Allen to the ground. In a rush, he kicked hard and hit the left tack free, resulting in a penalty and finally a bag for Tyler Lancaster. Two games later he was behind in less than two seconds, but Allen got rid of it. He is always an effective attacker from the inside against guards.
OLB Preston Smith: His two sacks dropped to third place. The first was the result of sheer speed and speed around the corner. He reached the outer shoulder, accelerated through contact, and chased the quarterback down in his pocket. Kyle Allen was fortunate enough to hold the ball. The second sack looked similar. He used quick hands and feet to get the edge and turn the corner, and Kenny Clark's internal pressure held Allen straight into Smith's target as he stepped into his pocket. Finally, Smith finished the final game of the match with a stop after Kyler Fackrell met Christian McCaffrey in the backfield.
RB Aaron Jones: He is such a special player. He left Luke Kuechly in the hole during his 5-yard touchdown run to open the game. On his 28-yard scamper in the second half, he made a sharp cut in, breaking into the second level and beating the diver's attack attempt of safety. At times, it looks as if he is gliding across the grass at a different speed than anyone else around him. His third touchdown was a perfect example. Three defenders let him box, but he exploded into the second level, leaving all three in the dust. Security forces must have nightmares when trying to fight him in the open field. In the fourth quarter, Jones turned a fire loss into an explosive run as he sprinted outside and turned the corner after the Panthers had clogged the middle. He also had a 16-yard penalty, which was denied by a penalty, and Rodgers missed him wide open in the middle of the field, which was likely to have been a simple catch-and-run touchdown in the third quarter.
S Adrian Amos: Two point-saving pieces make Amos worth a place here. He read Kyle Allen's eyes and was supposed to intercept an end zone in the third quarter, but his ballgame was still an easy decision for Tramon Williams. That cost at least three points. Later Amos wrestled from the middle of the field and threw away a two-point attempt.
WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling : He only played 11 snapshots. It is clear that Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard have overtaken him on the depth map. Valdes-Scantling was disappointing on a shot from Aaron Rodgers. In the last three games he has a catch for four meters.
P JK Scott: Like last year, Scott fought under cold, wintry conditions. He averaged 35.3 yards per punt and twice brought the Panthers into an excellent field position with bad kicks, including a 32-yard out-of-bound in the first half. A few punts within the 20-yard line in the second half helped improve the performance slightly. He has to be better in adverse weather conditions.
