The Green Bay Packers walked out of Levi’s Stadium with style and their heads hung high after Aaron Rodgers led the team down 42 yards in 37 seconds with no timeouts. “Money” Mason Crosby then finished it off by drilling a 51-yard field goal to send the Green Bay Packers to a 2-1 record. Let’s dive into the studs and duds of the week 3 matchup.

 

Studs:

 

Davante Adams

Davante Adams being the first player on the studs list should not come as a shock to anyone after his performance Sunday night. Adams put up 12 receptions for 132 yards and 1 touchdown for the Green Bay Packers and earned himself a PFF grade of 91.6, which was the highest on the team. Adams also took a huge hit to the jaw (that went unpenalized) and only managed to miss one snap from it.

 

De’Vondre Campbell

De’Vondre Campbell has seen drastic improvements every single week and he really showed out this week. Campbell finished the night with 12 total tackles, 2 big stops at the line of scrimmage, and a very impressive game in coverage, especially on short routes. Campbell also earned himself a 70.0 PFF grade, which seemed to be low for his performance, but it was still around the top for the Green Bay Packers defense.

 

Yosh Nijman

It was a difficult decision to put Yosh Nijman as the final spot on the Green Bay Packers studs list over so many other great potential candidates, but given his situation, I believe he earned it. Nijman, the former undrafted free agent, got his first career start and it came lined up against pro bowl edge rusher, Nick Bosa. Nijman had some struggles to start the game, but he eventually settled down and put together an impressive game.

How he got a 50.4 PFF grade after not allowing a single pressure in 38 pass blocking snaps is a shock to me but Nijman stepped up when the Green Bay Packers were limited on the line and he earned his respect for being able to rely on him in the future if needed.

Duds:

 

Chandon Sullivan

Chandon Sullivan is the first player on the duds list for the Green Bay Packers. Sullivan saw the most snaps he’s seen all year with Kevin King missing the game with an illness, but he did not make the most of it. He earned a 29.2 PFF grade, missed 2 tackles, gave up 5 catches for 87 yards from the slot, and was also penalized once. King has not been great for the Packers but I believe most fans will be excited to have him back after that outing from Sullivan.

 

Ty Summers

Ty Summers saw his first defensive snaps in the regular season this year for the Green Bay Packers after Krys Barnes went down with an injury. Like Sullivan, Summers also did not make the most of his shot at significant time on the field. Summers earned a 26.7 PFF grade which was the lowest on the entire Green Bay Packers team. He also missed two tackles and allowed 5 catches in coverage in just 20 defensive snaps.

 

Royce Newman

Despite playing out of his mind throughout practice, preseason, and the first 2 weeks, Newman finds himself on the final spot of the Green Bay Packers duds list after a somewhat disappointing outing week 3. Newman didn’t seem to play quite as badly as his PFF grade of a 42.3, but he did allow the only sack of the game and he wasn’t a very effective piece of the run game on Sunday.
