Rookie running back's 20-yard TD run sealed Packers' win over Tampa Bay

GREEN BAY – Packers running back Aaron Jones has been named the Castrol Edge clutch performer of the week for his game-winning 20-yard touchdown run in the Packers’ 26-20 overtime win over Tampa Bay last Sunday. It was Jones’ lone carry of the contest.

The honor completes the trifecta of weekly awards for Jones this season. He previously won NFL rookie of the week for his 100-yard performances against Dallas in Week 5 and New Orleans in Week 7. He also was named the ground player of the week after rushing for a career-high 131 yards against the Saints.

Fellow rookie running back Jamaal Williams was voted the FedEX ground player of the week on Thursday after notching his first career 100-yard rushing performance against the Buccaneers.
