Packers punt returner Tramon Williams was named Special Teams Players of the Week for games played the 11th week of the 2007 season (November 18-19), the NFL announced Wednesday.

Williams set the tone early with a 94-yard punt-return touchdown in the Packers' 31-17 victory over Carolina to help Green Bay improve to 9-1. In the first quarter of a scoreless game, the Panthers lined up for a field goal but instead executed a pooch punt. Williams fielded the bouncing ball at his own six-yard line and sprinted up the right sideline for a 94-yard touchdown to give the Packers a lead they would not relinquish. Williams' return tied for the second-longest punt-return touchdown in franchise history, one yard shy of the team record (95 yards, STEVE ODOM, 11/10/74 vs. Chicago).

In his first season from Louisiana Tech, this is Williams' first career Player of the Week Award. He is the second Packer to be named Special Teams Player of the Week this season, joining rookie kicker MASON CROSBY (Week 1).

Other nominee for NFC Special Teams Player of Week 11 was:
-Tampa Bay punter JOSH BIDWELL, who had a net average of 39.2 yards per punt and placed three of his five punts inside the 20-yard line.
