1. Aaron Jones
After being all but shut down in the last two games, Aaron Jones bounced back in a huge way. Almost 200 all-purpose yards huge.
The one aspect of the Packers offense that seemed to work no matter what was Jones. He finished the day with 134 yards on 16 carries with one score and six catches for 58 yards.
Jones was also responsible for the Packers’ longest plays of the day with his 42-yard run in the second quarter and a 25-yard reception in the fourth. The reception was as important as any play in the game. The Packers were backed up at the six yard-line and facing a third-and-long. Aaron Rodgers threaded the needle between two defenders right into Jones for the first down on a drive that ended with the Packers’ final three points of the day.
Jones wasn’t the sole reason the Packers won, but he was a key reason. Jones was a one-man wrecking crew on a day where not much else worked.
Jones is only the second running back (Ahman Green 2003) in the Super Bowl era to score 12 rushing touchdowns for the Packers. The last two weeks may have taken Jones out of the running for NFL Offensive Player of the Year, but this game may have cemented his team MVP award.
The offense will always run through Aaron Rodgers, he is a two-time MVP and one of the best to ever play quarterback. But, in 2019, the Packers are at their best when Jones is a featured player.
