After a terrible performance last week, Williams bounced back in this game. He was a lot more physical with four tackles and came up with three big pass defenses. As the Packers face better passing attacks in the playoffs, Williams will be needed to put together performances similar to this one.
The biggest criticism on Shields over the last few years has been his lack of physicality. Shields deserves a ton of credit for his turnover around this season and especially in this game. he lead the team in tackles with seven and came up with a gorgeous interception.
The big question all week was whether Woodson would be able to make enough of a difference for the Packers defense. He may not have been the complete difference, but he did a great job when he had chances to tackle Peterson. His toughness seemed to encourage the rest of the defense to get more physical.
Hayward was mostly quiet on the afternoon, but did come up with four tackles on the game. His solid play has helped the Packers limit the effectiveness of opposing teams wide receivers in the slot.
Burnett didn't come up with any big plays, but put a solid game. He finished the game with four total tackles. He did miss a tackle early in the game, but looked much better than he did last week.
McMillian didn't get many snaps with Charles Woodson back in the lineup, but did come up with one tackle on the evening. With decreased snaps, he will need to be ready when he does get opportunities to play.
Jennings got a decrease in snaps as well, but still managed to come up with three tackles. He played physical and will be asked to play depending on which formations the Packers use.
