#1 What Aaron Jones did on Sunday is exactly what coach von liny195 13.01.2020 07:46

Matt LaFleur envisioned for the running game when he took over the reins of the Packers in January.Jones had 116 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 23 carries in Green Bay's 21-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings."He did an unbelievable job [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey]https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey[/url] ," LaFleur said Monday of the third-year running back. "Matter of fact, he was our player of the game on offense. He did a great job. But I thought it really started up front, too. I thought our offensive line did a really nice job blocking for him."After totaling just 39 yards rushing at Chicago in the season opener, Jones eclipsed the 100-yard mark on the ground for the fourth time in his career and the first time since Week 10 of last season.While the spotlight will be on LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers this season, LaFleur has maintained that in order for the offense to be as efficient and effective as he wants, the run game has to be established early and often.Jones also had four catches for 34 yards, including a 15-yard gain on a grab with the Green Bay offense backed up to its end zone."Wins aren't pretty in the NFL, but as long as you get that W in the win column, that's all that matters," Jones said.WHAT'S WORKINGThe secret is out: The Packers have a really good defense.The defense, for the second straight week, carried the team to victory. Coordinator Mike Pettine's group forced four turnovers on Sunday and now has the NFL's No. 2 scoring defense, behind only the Patriots. Green Bay has allowed 19 points through the first two games [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Bryan-Bulaga-Jersey]Bryan Bulaga Jersey[/url] , its fewest through the first two weeks since 2001."Shoot, I mean, it feels good," second-year cornerback Jaire Alexander said. "You got everybody bringing that swag, everybody bringing that juice and we see the results. Sacks, hurries and interceptions."WHAT'S NOT WORKINGThe offense (kind of). After scoring touchdowns on each of their first three possessions Sunday, the Packers failed to get points on their next 11 drives. The offense continued to look out of sync despite doing enough to keep Green Bay unbeaten."We haven't done as well as we'd like to on the offensive side of the ball, but I still have a lot of confidence in the players that we have out there," LaFleur said.STOCK UPJones said before the season that he felt "slept on." Well, not anymore. After his performance Sunday, and a coach in LaFleur who is bound and determined to get Jones and the running game going, the 2017 fifth-round pick is primed to be the Packers' first 1,000-yard rusher since Eddie Lacy in 2014.STOCK DOWNLeft guard Lane Taylor's snap numbers suggest the seventh-year veteran is losing his grip on the starting job. Green Bay drafted guard Elgton Jenkins in the second round in April and the rookie impressed throughout the summer. Jenkins stole some of Taylor's snaps on Sunday [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/J_Mon-Moore-Jersey]J'Mon Moore Color Rush Jersey[/url] , and LaFleur said it's a "fluid competition" between the two.INJUREDSafety Raven Greene (ankle) was placed on injured reserve on Monday. Greene was carted off the field on Sunday following the first play of the second half.KEY NUMBER343 — Sunday marked the 343rd consecutive regular-season sellout at Lambeau Field.NEXT STEPSGreen Bay will host the Broncos on Sunday. The Packers are 6-7-1 against Denver, which is 0-2 following a loss to the Raiders in their season opener and a last-second defeat against Chicago in Week 2.Follow Keith Jenkins on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MrKeithJenkins Green Bay got their first injury of the game midway through the first quarter." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTIt only took a few minutes of game time for the Green Bay Packers to suffer their first injury of the 2019 preseason. After a flag-filled first series on offense, the Packers punted the football away to the Houston Texans, who were moving the ball thanks to a defensive penalty on cornerback Tony Brown.On a first and ten, however, the Packers got pressure on Texans quarterback Joe Webb. With defensive lineman Montravius Adams collapsing the pocket on the interior, inside linebacker Oren Burks was blitzing and was blocked onto the ground. Outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert brought Webb down for a sack, but Burks remained on his back on the turf after the play for some time, seemingly holding his arm or shoulder.Burks, the team’s third-round draft pick in 2018, started the game next to rookie Ty Summers. He was injured during the second preseason game a year ago, seemingly sapping his early development and causing him to have a minimal role on defense. Hopefully this injury does not cost Burks the remainder of this game or any further action.UPDATE: Burks came out of the injury tent with his left shoulder wrapped up and his day appears to be done.
