Trevor Davis named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Packers receiver had a career-long 65-yard punt return in win over Cleveland

GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Trevor Davis has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his career-long 65-yard punt return in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 27-21 overtime victory over the Cleveland Browns.

The play gave Green Bay’s offense the ball at the Cleveland 25, helping set up Davante Adams’ eventual 1-yard touchdown catch to tie the game at 21 and force overtime. The second-year receiver ranks fifth among all qualifying returners with an 11.7-yard average on punts this season.

Davis’ 65-yard punt return is tied for the seventh longest in the NFL this season.

“He made a lot of people miss but that’s the kind of ability he has,” said special-teams coordinator Ron Zook on Monday. “It’s funny, because when he was running, when he went by me, the first thing I was doing was making sure there weren’t any penalties.”

Davis’ honor comes one week after Packers defensive end Dean Lowry was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week after notching a sack and returning a 62-yard fumble for a touchdown in a 26-20 overtime win over Tampa Bay.
