The Green Bay Packers sit at 4-2 and in a tie with the Detroit Lions for the NFC North lead, thanks to late-game heroics on Sunday from a number of critical players. In today's curds, a few of those players and their plays get a closer look, including a few which have gone under the radar a bit but deserve some special attention.

We also find that two of the Packers' players graded out as the best players at their positions this weekend, and one of those two names may be a big surprise.

If Lattimore is out, should the Packers move Matthews to inside linebacker? | AllGBP.Com
This is an interesting idea which has also been discussed a bit in the comments here at APC. I imagine a lot of people here would support moving Clay Matthews inside.

However, Clay is grading out consistently with the coaches, as they expect his production in terms of tackles and pressures to improve.
