Defense: Charles Woodson, Green Bay – The Michigan product and former Heisman Trophy winner tallied six tackles and picked off a pass (watch the INT!) to help keep Green Bay’s dreams of a perfect season alive with a commanding 46-16 victory over Oakland.
Special Teams: Mike Nugent, Cincinnati – The ex-Buckeye was a perfect 4 for 4 on field goals, including a game-long 49-yarder (watch the kick!), in Cincinnati’s last-second 20-19 defeat to playoff-bound Houston. Nugent also nailed his lone extra point, giving him 13 points on the afternoon.
