Aaron Jones named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Packers running back ties franchise record with four rushing touchdowns


GREEN BAY – Packers running back Aaron Jones has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after his four-touchdown performance in Sunday's 34-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Jones became just the fourth NFL player since 1950 to post 100-plus rushing yards, 75-plus receiving yards and four rushing touchdowns in a game as he joined Gale Sayers, Dub Jones and Shaun Alexander as the only players to accomplish the feat.

Jones tied a franchise record with his four rushing touchdowns, becoming just the fourth player in Packers history to do so and the first since Dorsey Levens in the 1999 regular-season finale.

Jones also became the first NFL player to register four rushing TDs in a game against the Dallas Cowboys and has a league-leading eight touchdowns in 2019.

This is Jones' first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award. Jones was also nominated as the FedEx Ground Player of the Week, which fans can cast votes for here.
