Jones lost the landing direct to McCaffrey final 7 days immediately after Jones went scoreless in the reduction at the Los Angeles Chargers. 3 touchdowns afterwards — to a single for McCaffrey — Jones was back on top with 14, tied with McCaffrey. Ahman Green has the group record for touchdowns in a season (20 in 2000).
All a few of Jones’ scores on Sunday arrived on the floor, providing him 11 speeding touchdowns on the season.
It was Jones’ next a few-touchdown sport of the period. He’s the to start with Packers player since Sterling Sharpe in 1994 with multiple a few-TD online games in a period and the initially Packers working again since Jim Taylor in 1962 with several 3-TD games in a year (Taylor did it 3 moments that year).
The Packers not only observed a mix in between Jones and Jamaal Williams — the two blended for 156 yards speeding — but also more than enough targets for Professional Bowl receiver Davante Adams to make a big difference. He went about the 100-property obtaining mark late in the third quarter when his 38-garden deep ball obtained the Packers out of a 2nd-and-26 from their 9-lawn line gap.
Even though Jones (13 carries for 93 yards) and Williams (13 for 63) did it on the ground, Adams caught seven passes for 118 yards.
It gave the Packers (8-2) a bounce back again win heading into their bye week.
Pivotal play (that was not): Packers coach Matt LaFleur is not a get-the-points form of man. At minimum he wasn’t at the end of the 1st half when a Panthers penalty gave the Packers a initial-and-intention at the 2-property line with 2 seconds remaining. LaFleur could have opted for a gimme discipline purpose and a 17-10 halftime direct. As a substitute, he went for it, and Panthers defensive deal with Gerald McCoy defeat left deal with David Bakhtiari to the inside of and blew up Williams for a 3-garden loss. Provided that the Packers gained the second-50 percent kickoff, the safe and sound participate in would have been to choose the three points. It turned a non-issue mainly because the Packers scored on the opening generate of the next fifty percent and cruised.
Promising pattern: The Packers improved to 7- in video games with a takeaway (but 1-2 in games without the need of just one). The initially, a fumble by Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen, fell into the fingers of defensive deal with Montravius Adams. The 2nd was an interception by Tramon Williams off a go deflected by Adrian Amos. That was the Packers’ fourth interception on a go thrown into the end zone this year, the most in the NFL, according to ESPN Stats & Details.
Troubling trend: The Packers authorized a few additional performs of 20 yards or additional — passes from Allen to DJ Moore (for 38 and 24 yards) and Jarius Wright (21 yards) — that means the protection has yielded 42 performs of at minimum 20 yards this year. Their 39 these kinds of performs getting into Sunday was sixth-most in the NFL.
