Aaron Jones nominated for National Football League ground player of the week

Aaron Jones nominated for National Football League ground player of the week”

Jones previously won the award past year after rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints. Green Bay drove down the field with a objective, which was capped off by a seven-yard Davante Adams' touchdown reception.

While Rodgers threw for a mundane 199 yards, Jones rushed for a career-high 145 yards and two touchdowns to lift Green Bay to a critical 31-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Growing up in Chico and spending a great deal of time up there, I played a lot of football and basketball and sports up in Paradise. "It don't matter how long it takes for "12" to get the ball out".

Eight times this season, a Jones run on first down set up a second down of four or fewer yards.

Bell was answering about quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Asked about the difference in the red zone, Rodgers said, "Really running the ball I think, because we've been throwing it so many times in the red zone".

NOTES: The Packers held what coach Mike McCarthy described as a "very limited" practice on Tuesday before departing for Seattle in the evening. But yeah, we had two tough losses in a row, a lot of travel, heat game, all those things add up.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling led with six receptions for 44 yards. On the opening series, he had two rushes for 27 yards and two catches for 27 yards. "It starts up front and with the rest of the blocking unit". And he accounted for another turnover after throwing an interception to Bashaud Breeland that was returned 26 yards to the Miami 12 with 8:52 left in the third quarter.

Sanders hit all four of his field goals in Green Bay, from 37, 25, 47 and 40 yards. The Packers had a blocked punt, a fumbled punt return by Tramon Williams, a fumbled kick return by offensive lineman Lucas Patrick (who shouldn't be picking up the ball at all) and an offsides call on a field goal attempt by Josh Jackson that did not end up costing the Packers anything since the penalty was declined.

Miami is not good at stopping the run, the Dolphins rank inside the bottom five in the league in allowing better than 136 yards on the ground to opponents this season. The bye comes at a flawless time for the Dolphins, who were without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill and three starting offensive linemen, including tackles Laremy Tunsil and Ja'Wuan James.

The Dolphins go from No. 18 to No. 22 this week.
