Nick Barnett

46 rushing yards on 17 attempts. The GB Game 1 Stats reinforce the concerns about the Packers coming into the season as a one dimensional offence. The Packers defense did hold McNabb to a 60.7 passer rating but then the Eagles defense held Favre to a 58.2.

Nick Barnett is clearly the defensive player of the game with over twice as many individual tackles as anyone else, plus the interception he leaps up and steals out of midair. The youngest team in the NFL finds a way to seize and capitalize on opportunities and emerge with a win. Yeah Cheese!
