The Green Bay Packers’ running game has been revitalized on week five Sunday. Aaron Jones is having a magnificent day as the team’s primary running back, carrying the ball ten times for 71 yards midway through the second quarter.
Jones also has been having a big day as a receiver out of the backfield, catching six passes for 68 yards. But he has also excelled running the ball in the red zone, crossing the goal line a total of three times for all three of the Packers’ touchdowns. His latest score put the Packers up 24-0 early in the third quarter, as Jones jetted around the left side of the line on first-and-goal from the five-yard line:
The play on its own is great, as Jones used his great agility and athleticism to get to the edge and turn the corner. But if you watch a little closer, you can see Jones trolling Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones as he gets the corner on him. Check out this little goodbye wave as he puts on the jets:
Jones has played two games at AT&T Stadium as a professional, his first coming in 2017. In that game he also crossed over the hundred-yard mark in total offense and scored one touchdown, so it’s safe to say he enjoys playing in his home state.
