1. Aaron Jones

Aaron Jones loves to play in Dallas. He is currently undefeated in that building and has had some of the best games of his life there. The same could be said about the other Aaron, Aaron Rodgers.

Jones showed he’s not the only Aaron on the roster who has made Dallas his second home. Jones got his first start here in 2017 and put up his first 100-yard game. For his second game, he tied a Packers team record with four touchdowns, led the team in rushing with 107 yards, and also in receiving with seven catches for 75 yards.

It’s safe to say he more than made up for the loss of Davante Adams.

For the past two seasons, Packers fans all over the world have been screaming for Jones to get more carries. It finally seems as if it is happening. With his size and injury history, the Packers will have to balance his load, but it’ll be hard if Jones keeps playing like this.

Coach LaFleur did a great job of mixing in Tra Carson, but it was clear the offense was much better when Jones was in. When Jamaal Williams is back and healthy, the Packers will have a better balanced tandem than what we saw in Dallas. Regardless, the team will have to find a way to keep feeding Jones while keeping him healthy and ready later in the season.
