Rodgers To Jones For 70 Yards And A Touchdown

Aaron Rodgers has thrown two touchdown passes in the last two games to James Jones, and I don't think either catch could have been stopped by any defender. 

Against the Broncos, Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to Jones that was low and in the back of the end zone. He hit Jones right in stride, and if he had been bumped off his route, the pass would have skidded off the turf incomplete. I can't imagine any defender could have made a play on that ball.

Against the Falcons, the Packers were down 14 to 9 when Rodgers connected with Jones for another touchdown. Watching the replay from the end zone, Jones was covered when Rodgers threw it. But he broke away from the safety while the ball was in the air and he caught it on his finger tips in stride. There was no deep help on the pass, so if Jones hadn't been able to get to it, it would have bounced incomplete several yards past any defender. Just a perfect play by a receiver and quarterback who have together in the same offensive scheme for the past five seasons.

The Packers took their first lead of the game on the touchdown and never looked back, which is why I said it was the Power Play of the Week.
