Aaron Jones starred on Packers' second TD drive

Second-year RB showed speed, balance and power to lead scoring march


GREEN BAY – Second-year running back Aaron Jones entered Sunday's game for the Packers, and he wasted no time making an impact.

As Green Bay scored its second touchdown of the 22-0 win over Buffalo, Jones was the star, and the drive spanning the end of the first and beginning of the second quarters is the Chevy Drive of the Week.

Starting on their own 17-yard line, the Packers got going on a 9-yard pass to WR Davante Adams. After a defensive holding penalty gave Green Bay a first down, Jones took his first handoff on the final play of the first quarter and burst through a hole on the left side for 30 yards. TE Lance Kendricks threw a key block in the hole to spring Jones.

From there, WR Geronimo Allison gained 9 on a short reception, with his fumble fortunately going out of bounds. Jones moved the chains on third-and-short with a 3-yard run.

After losing three yards on first down, Jones got his number called again, taking a screen pass to the right, bouncing off tacklers, spinning and keeping his balance long enough to gain 17 yards, all the way down to the Buffalo 13.

QB Aaron Rodgers scrambled for 10 to make it first-and-goal, and then Jones showed his power by bowling over a defender at the goal line for a 3-yard TD run, putting the Packers up 13-0.
