Fourth-year wide receiver James Jones recorded a career-best, eight-catch performance for 123 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 45-7 victory over the Cowboys Sunday night, earning him selection as the Packers Hall of Fame Featured Player of the Week. The exhibit contains memorabilia from the game, including a game ball autographed by Jones.
Jones was the leading target for the Packers offense, and saw the ball come his way nine times for eight completions. Leading 28-7 by the third quarter, Jones caught a 10-yard pass and charged into the end zone, bringing the Packers' lead to 35-7.
Sunday's performance marked Jones' second 100-yard game in three weeks and the fifth of his career. His back-to-back receptions for 22 and 31 yards in the second quarter set up the Packers' second touchdown.
Each week, new items from the previous weekend's game will be placed in the display to be viewed by visitors to the Hall. Included among the items will be the autographed game ball, which at the end of the week will be awarded randomly to a Hall of Fame visitor who signed up for the free drawing.
Also in the exhibit will be the featured player's jersey, as well as other potential items such as a face mask, shoes, gloves and other equipment.
The winners of game balls thus far have been Kimberly Ruffolo, Lake In The Hills, Ill. (Week 1, Clay Matthews); Stan Martin, Avondale, Ariz. (Week 2, Jermichael Finley); Amy Johnson, St. Peters, Mo. (Week 3, Aaron Rodgers); Emma Jeffers, Manitowoc, Wis. (Week 4, Charles Woodson); Randy Kraft, Devils Lake, N.D. (Week 5, Brandon Jackson), David Morris, Clifton Forge, Va. (Week 6, Greg Jennings), Brian Schaible, Roanoke, Texas (Week 7, Desmond Bishop) and Rebecca Tester, Indian Head, Md. (Week 8, Tramon Williams).
The exhibit will continue through the season. Hall of Fame admission is required to see the exhibit, and visitors are able to fill out a raffle form for a chance to win the ball. One raffle ticket will be distributed per each paid admission. Raffle winners will be selected at close of business Saturday and be notified on or before the following Monday.
The featured player will be selected after each game and will be indicated in game coverage on the team's Web site, Packers.com. Packers.com also will feature a photo of the display at the beginning of each week.
