1. AJ Dillon gets first touchdown for Packers
Jamaal Williams could miss Sunday night’s game due to a quadriceps injury that has kept him out of practice. While all signs are pointing to Aaron Jones being ready to go, he is also on the injury report with a toe injury.
When given opportunities this season, rookie running back AJ Dillon has impressed. Dillon only has 24 carries this year but has turned them into 115 yards, averaging 4.8 yards per run. He took his only rushing attempt for 18 yards last week against the Carolina Panthers.
If Williams is inactive this week, there should be additional opportunities for Dillon to get on the field.
With that, Dillon has the chance to show the Packers why he can be the starting running back next season (Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are both free agents in the offseason).
And I predict Dillon will find the end zone for the first time in his NFL career this week.
While Jones will get the majority of the carries, and the Titans’ struggling pass defense could lead to the Packers throwing the ball a lot, Dillon will make the most of the opportunities he gets.
On one of his carries, Dillon will put up six points for the Packers.
