Dud: Aaron Jones
Sorry, Packers fans, but Aaron Jones just didn't have it on Sunday afternoon against the Steelers. Jones put forth a very lackluster performance and was, dare I say, outperformed by his running mate A.J. Dillon.
Dillon put up 70 yards on ground with nine carries, including a game-breaker with the largest gain of the day (40 yards). But Jones piled up just 35 yards on 13 rushing attempts for only 2.6 yards per rush. Yikes!
Jones was also targeted six times in the pass game, more than any other player except Christian Watson. But the 28-year-old was only able to haul in four catches for 19 yards with a long of 12.
The seven-year veteran from UTEP had a terrific game last week against against the Los Angeles Rams. Jones ran for 73 yards on 20 carries against LA and also recorded a touchdown.
If the Green Bay Packers have any hope of making it to the postseason, which is looking less and less likely, Aaron Jones has to be effective and a focal point of the team's offensive attack. The focus was there this past Sunday against Pittsburgh, but the effectiveness was lacking.
