• Shea McClellin wins NFC defensive player honors

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 6, 2013
    Shea McClellin has had a bigger impact on the Packers than the Bears so far, but his big night did earn him an award. Give McClellin, who was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week, some credit. There is no guarantee that McClellin will ever have this type of performance again, but at least now he has the confidence that he can dominate a game from the defensive end position. McClellin was named NFC defensive player of the week after his 3.0-sack game against the Packers Monday night. This came out of left field, but McClellin had the game of his life against the Green Bay Packers with 3.0 sacks, two tackles-for-loss and the hit that knocked Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers out of the contest with a fractured left collarbone. He also opened up the NFC North race when his hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers resulted in a broken collarbone which should sideline Rodgers for several weeks, an unfortunate footnote to a breakout performance. The veteran defensive end flashed his athleticism when he deflected a Seneca Wallace short pass in the air and grabbed the football with one hand to secure the interception.
