Key Players: A.J. Hawk, Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, Brad Jones, Andy Mulumba, Jamari Lattimore, Nick Perry
No specific unit has seen as many injuries as the linebackers for the Green Bay Packers. Hawk is the only starter who hasn't missed a game this season, and that's a big reason why this group struggles to play up to their talent level.
This week's biggest play came from the defensive MVP of the season, Mr. Hawk. His interception in the fourth quarter gave the Packers a chance to tie the game with just over seven minutes remaining.
Matthews also posted a sack, but he landed awkwardly on his thumb and was forced to miss the rest of the game.
The worst play this week, and the main reason this unit gets such a poor grade, came from Perry. He jumped offsides on a field-goal attempt in the final minutes that turned into a game-winning touchdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
It was a ridiculously foolish play and one that ultimately cost the Packers the game.
Final Grade: C-
