A few Green Bay Packers took home some hardware at ESPN's ESPY awards in Los Angeles Wednesday.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was named the NFL player of the year at the awards show considered the sports world's version of the Oscars, where athletes dress up and walk the red carpet.

Rodgers also won best play of the year with teammate Jarrod Cook for their spectacular pass and catch along the sideline to set up the game-winning field goal during the divisional playoff game versus the Dallas Cowboys.

Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson also won an ESPY Wednesday for Comeback Player of the Year.

Nelson missed the entire 2015 season with a knee injury, then played every game in 2016 making 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns.
