Week 17: NFL Player of the Week

Week 17: NFL Player of the Week - Matt Flynn (3)

words // Brandon Richard

To nobody’s surprise, the top player from the Week 17 NFL schedule was the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. To everybody’s surprise, that quarterback was backup Matt Flynn, who started for just the second time in his four-year career with the Packers deciding to rest their starters for a playoff run. In a week where New Orleans Saints quarterback threw for 389 yards and 5 touchdowns, Flynn somehow managed to top those numbers. He completed 31 of his 44 passes for 480 yards and 6 touchdown passes in a 45-41 shootout win over the rival Detroit Lions.

Not only did Flynn post big numbers, but he out-dueled Detroit gunner Matthew Stafford in a game that went down to the wire. With a little more than two minutes left to play, Stafford connected with tight end Tony Scheffler for a 12-yard touchdown to give the Lions a 41-38 lead. In response, Flynn marched the Packers down the field 80 yards, finishing with a 4-yard strike to tight end Jermichael Finley. That pass proved to be the game winner.

Even more impressive about Flynn’s day was that he set records for passing yards and touchdown passes in a game. Considering that Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have all taken snaps for the Packers, that is a remarkable feat.

Flynn is set to become a free agent after this season. Which team do you think would be the best fit for the overnight sensation?
