Jamaal Williams and Jalen Davis both had career days on Sunday, albeit at different points in their NFL careers.

Williams, the former BYU running back, put up a career-best 156 yards from scrimmage for Green Bay in its 44-38 overtime win over the New York Jets.

The second-year back also passed the 1,000-yard career rushing mark in the Packers win, as he ran for a game-high 95 yards on 15 carries.

Williams scored a 7-yard touchdown in the second quarter, fighting through a pair of defenders before stretching the ball over the goal line, a score that brought Green Bay within 21-14 with 1:33 left until halftime.

Williams also had six receptions for 61 yards on nine targets, as he started at running back for Green Bay while playing 86 offensive snaps.

“I just feel like my hard work and everything is paying off,” Williams told the Packers' website. “Just coming out in the game showing the results of all my hard work and everything I’ve been going through. (I) want to come out here to show my team that I’m ready and working hard every time.”

Davis, the former Utah State cornerback in his rookie NFL season, had a memorable second career game in Miami’s 17-7 loss to Jacksonville.

Davis, who was promoted to the active roster on Dec. 8, sacked Jacksonville’s Cody Kessler for a 5-yard loss on a third-and-9 play. That forced a punt on the opening possession of the third quarter after the Jaguars had driven into Miami territory.

Late in the fourth quarter, Davis also forced a fumble on a Jaguars completion that Jacksonville recovered. Davis also had two solo tackles and a quarterback hurry while playing 13 defensive snaps and five on special teams.
