Defensively, Stewart Franks led the team with 11 tackles (six solo), but Xavier Jordan provided the play of the game with an interception that he returned ten yards for a touchdown with 1:24 to go in the third quarter.  Jordan finished with 7 tackles (three solo) and two pass breakups as well.

Green Bay's LaRon Council  was held to 83 yards and two scores on 24 rushes.  Blizzard quarterback Donovan Porterie was 12 of 22 for 165 yards with a touchdown and one interception.  He also rushed for 18 yards and one score.
