Now that he's finally healthy, Tramon Williams is back to being a shutdown corner. He played a massively impressive game against the Bears and eliminated Brandon Marshall from being a factor. On the night, Marshall ended up with only two catches and 24 yards. Williams was a big reason why the Packers were able to cancel out Marshall's impact. In addition to his shutting down Marshall, Williams also came up with two interceptions. A more than solid day at the office.
After losing his starting job, Shields put together a decent performance last week. He got the nod this week and played a very solid game. He was heavily benefitting from the Packers' pass rush, but Shields didn't give up any big plays. Shields did make one mistake though. He accidentally ran onto a loose ball on a punt, touching the ball and making it live. He did a good job to pounce on the ball.
After talk of being washed-up, Woodson showed that the 35-year old still has it. He played a solid game with five total tackles and an interception. He broke on Cutler's pass and took the ball away for his 55th career interception.
The rookie had a decent game and didn't give up any big plays. He dropped what should have been an interception, but made up for it later by picking off Jay Cutler in the closing minutes. The interception probably should not have been ruled a catch, but it stood.
After miscommunications involving Burnett were discussed after the 49ers game, Burnett was good against the Bears. He finished the game with six total tackles, deflected a pass and got a hit on the quarterback. The biggest piece for Burnett was not giving up a big play to Cutler and the Bears.
Hayward came in for the dime package, ahead of Jarrett Bush. He did a decent job on the evening and came up with three total tackles. He looked a step behind in coverage, but the rookie hung in fairly well for his second NFL game.
Jarrett Bush– N/A
Bush was replaced by Shields and Hayward and is falling down the pecking order at cornerback. His strong play on special teams keeps him in the active roster conversation, but things will get interesting once Davon House is back from his shoulder injury.
