Wide receiver Greg Jennings
snared an 86-yard touchdown reception among six catches for 133 yards during Sunday’s game vs. the Miami Dolphins, earning him selection as the Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week. The exhibit contains memorabilia from the game, including a game ball autographed by Jennings.
The first-quarter TD haul from Aaron Rodgers marked the longest play of both players’ careers. The play staked the Packers to a 10-7 lead and was the longest Green Bay completion in a regular-season game since Robert Brooks’ 99-yard TD catch from Brett Favre on Sept. 11, 1995, at Chicago.
Jennings’ 133 yards was the most in a game for him since a 167-yard performance on Sept. 14, 2008, at Detroit, and was the 15th 100-yard game of his career and first this season. His day included a 20-yard catch on a fourth-and-7 at the two minute warning to give the Packers a first-and-goal at the 9 in a drive that produced a game-tying TD with 12 seconds left in regulation.
Each week, new items from the previous weekend’s game will be placed in the display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall. Included among the items will be the autographed game ball, which at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of Fame visitor who signed up for the free drawing.
Also in the exhibit will be the featured player’s jersey, as well as potentially other items such as a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.
The winners of game balls thus far have been Kimberly Ruffolo, Lake In The Hills, Ill. (Week 1, Clay Matthews); Stan Martin, Avondale, Ariz. (Week 2, Jermichael Finley); Amy Johnson, St. Peters, Mo. (Week 3, Aaron Rodgers); Emma Jeffers, Manitowoc, Wis. (Week 4, Charles Woodson); and Randy Kraft, Devils Lake, N.D. (Week 5, Brandon Jackson).
The exhibit will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a raffle form for a chance to win the ball. One raffle ticket will be distributed per each paid admission. Raffle winners will be selected at close of business Saturday and be notified on or before the following Monday.
The featured player will be selected after each game and will be indicated in game coverage on the team’s Web site, Packers.com. Packers.com also will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
