GREEN BAY – It was the shortest scoring drive in terms of the number of plays, but the longest in yardage.

The Packers' game-sealing possession midway through the fourth quarter in Monday night's 23-10 victory at U.S. Bank Stadium is the Chevy Drive of the Week.

Taking over with a seven-point lead and 7:40 on the clock, the Packers needed just three plays to put this one away and clinch the NFC North title.

RB Aaron Jones plowed straight ahead for a single yard before QB Aaron Rodgers hit WR Davante Adams for an 18-yard gain over the middle, Adams' career-high-tying 13th reception of the night, putting him over 100 yards (116).

Then it was Jones' turn to go over 100, as he ran to the left, got to the corner and turned it upfield with nothing but daylight in front of him, going 56 yards for his second rushing TD of the game.

The Packers led by two scores and never looked back, while Jones finished with 154 yards on 23 carries.

Green Bay Packers players celebrate after 23-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings to clinch the NFC North title.
