Giving the football to Aaron Jones is leading to exceptional results for the Green Bay Packers, who just cashed in on excellent field position on back-to-back drives to double their score in a span of just a few short minutes. Green Bay now leads the Miami Dolphins 28-12.
Following a kickoff out of bounds by Miami, the Packers took over at their own 40-yard line. Aaron Rodgers found veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis for a big 30-yard gain up the sideline, then handed the football off to Aaron Jones on two straight plays. The first went for 12 yards down to the Dolphins’ ten-yard line, and on the next play he barreled into the end zone. That gave Jones his second touchdown of the game and extended the Packers’ lead out to 21-12.
On the second play of the ensuing Dolphins drive, Bashaud Breeland jumped Danny Amendola’s route, picking off Brock Osweiler’s pass and returning it down to the 12-yard line. Take a look at the veteran’s first pick here:

A crackback block penalty by Davante Adams on the next offensive snap pushed the Packers back a few yards, but he made up for it just two plays later. On second and 23 from the Dolphins’ 25, Adams found a soft spot in the Dolphins’ zone coverage up the right sideline. Aaron Rodgers hit him perfectly at the five-yard line, and he scampered across the goal line for his second score of the game.
