Dean Lowry named NFC defensive player of the week

Dean Lowry got an unexpected chance to do the Lambeau Leap.

He also got an unexpected award for it.

The Packers defensive end was named NFC defensive player of the week, after recovering a Jameis Winston fumble and returning it 62-yards for a touchdown. Needless to say, it was his first touchdown.

He also had a sack in the win over the Buccaneers, as the Packers hold onto their slim playoff hopes.

The second-year defensive end is growing into more of a role with the Packers, one of the homegrown players their system is based on. The 2016 fourth-rounder has moved into the starting lineup this year, and has a pair of sacks this season.

  1. Hey! Even Thompson finds an egg every now and then.
    —–
    I know I shouldn’t respond to trolls but in reality Thompson has hit on quite a few recently. Lowry, Clark, Martinez, Ryan, Dix, Williams, King, both Jones’, etc are all looking like homegrown starters for years to come. Jury is still out on Fackrell and Biegel. Our DC is holding us back at this point. How many damn times can a team beat you with a wr screen and you don’t adjust? Capers needs to go.

  2. Green Bay has a Defense?

    Yeah it’s the one that held the Steelers to fewer yards and fewer points than your team did.

    still collecting participation ribbons I see………..

  4. For once I agree with the Viking trolls. Did Lowry have a strong game? Not really, he played better than his average but nowhere near the top of all the NFL defensive players last week. Did Jameson just hand him the ball with nobody around so he could lumber 62 yards into the end zone? The answer is yes and it was a gift touchdown, something the Packers can’t afford to turn down given the way the season is going.

    They have some really solid building blocks.

    They a Clay Matthews-type. Not 2017 Clay Matthews. 2010 Clay Matthews.

    They need to ditch thier antique D-coordinator and his pre-historic scheme.

    And they need one more big ugly on the D-line.

    Maybe so, but it’s quite obvious that the Barneys are still whining and complaining on every single Green Bay Packer story that’s posted to this site.
    And that never changes.

    In the interest of accuracy, I’d like to point out that the Packers allowed 462 yards and 31 points to the Steelers. The Vikings allowed 335 yards and 26 points to the Steelers. Therefore, you are incorrect.

    The Vikings also allowed fewer yards and points than the Packers to the Saints, Falcons, Lions, Ravens, and Bucs.

    Rhodes shuts down Jones…….again and they give the award to fat guy who can run in a straight line with a football. Congratulations.

    ————

    Not sure Lowry needed this award. To your point,

    Rhodes shut down Jones because half your secondary was rolled to him so he wouldnt get smoked.

    Hes a good corner, grabs too much, but player of the week doesnt need to go to a guy that was protected by scheme either.

  9. Lowry, Clark, Martinez, Ryan, Dix, Williams, King, both Jones’
    >>
    Lowry, he’s decent for 4th
    Clark, decent for where picked.
    Martinez, who?
    Ryan, you’re kidding right? lol
    Dix, Ok. the greatest pick Thompson has made on defense.
    Williams, who?
    King, seriously looks lost.
    Jones, rookie I’ve never seen play and the other is on his third team this year.

    Why post when you have no idea what your talking about. Martinez is our leading tackler, Ryan is having a strong season, Williams has been a monster since taking over the starting RB role, King is a hard hitting but raw rookie and both Jones’ were drafted by us, this year, and have been playing well…with Jones the RB winning the game for us last week in OT.

  11. Just realized you thought I was talking about Datone Jones. Lol, I’d never claim him to be a success.

    =====

    If you don’t know who ‘Martinez’ is, you’re not a football fan. Or perhaps to be more fair, you certainly haven’t watched Packer football this year.

    You’ve “never seen [Josh] Jones play”.. but King “looks lost”… Jones has played twice as much as King… how are you forming these opinions?

    I’d have to say you you fail.

    Perhaps try again with different material.

    Whatjusthappened is at least a sensible football fan that has great insight to this game. unlike many of the other packer posters I can read whats opinions and they make sense. packer posters say they are the most football knowledgeable fans but most are just petty. Thanks for bringing a breath of fresh air to PFT whatjusthappened.

  14. What I find most interesting is that whenever a Packer story appears on this site, most of the early comments are from Vikings fans, and then about 50/50 are from Vikings fans. Expect for purpleguy, none of them ever acknowledge anything positive about Green Bay or its fans, they use names like Erin (when their team actually had a player named Erin), and they go out of their way to take the time to be negative.

    Yet, on all of the Ryan Shazier stories combined, their are no comments from the usual Vikings trolls. Not even one. Says a lot about who they are.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    Packer posters made no such claim. They didn’t have to. Packer fans were given the title of most knowledgeable NFL fans by winning a poll taken of active NFL players a few years ago…………..the guys that actually play the game, not opinionated trolls.

    Glad we could clear that up.

    It’s more than obvious said players don’t read the packers fan comments here. They would change their minds right quick.
