Green Bay – Three Performances of Note
Youngsters Shine in Coverage
After injury robbed the Packers of Charles Woodson they have been forced to go with a far more youthful secondary, and once again this coverage unit rose up with a fabulous performance led by two of its youngest players. Between second-year corner Davon House and rookie revelation Casey Hayward, the Packers’ two most-targeted defenders (House tied for second with four others) allowed only two completions for 14 yards. While House did most of his work preventing catches with positioning, recording a pass defense on just one of his four incompletions, Hayward was incredibly active playing the ball. The Packers’ second-round pick got his hands to four of Stafford’s passes, intercepting one and breaking up three more. In a season of incredible metrics this was one of Hayward’s best and for the second time this season he allowed an NFL Rating of 0.0 on passes targeted to his coverage.
Looking at some of their "Signature Stats
" articles, I also saw that Hayward was top 5 in tackling efficency (link

) at the time of their postings.

It has been very exciting to see these guys step up and play the way they have been the past few weeks. I don't know if I go too far by saying this but I find myself not missing much of Charles Woodson on the field right now because their play has been so great.

Great job by the young players. Looking forward to see them grow over the next few years.
