Trio of offensive stars did the job for Packers

Key second-quarter TD drive used all three to march the length of the field

WR Davante Adams

GREEN BAY – The offensive trio of Davante Adams, Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon accounted for 394 of the Packers' 466 total yards of offense Sunday in Cincinnati.

On a late second-quarter touchdown drive covering 81 yards, they accounted for all of it – 86 yards in fact, due to a penalty. So that might as well be the Chevy Drive of the Week from the 25-22 overtime triumph.

Leading 9-7, the Packers took over on their own 19-yard line with 5:55 left in the half. A short run and pass reception by Jones set up third-and-6, the only third down Green Bay would face on the drive.

A 15-yard completion to Adams converted it, and the Packers were on their way. Dillon followed a short run with a 24-yard gain on a pass reception in the flat, finding room up the sideline to run after the catch.

A 5-yard pass to Jones then made up for a false start penalty before Aaron Rodgers found Adams again for 22 yards up the seam, putting the ball in the red zone at the 13.

Jones ran for 8 yards up the middle, and then Rodgers capped the nine-play drive with a quick fade to Adams near the end-zone boundary for the touchdown, giving the Packers a 16-7 advantage, the only time they led by two scores in the game.

Adams went on to finish with a career-high 206 receiving yards on 11 catches, while Jones (103 yards rushing, 6 receiving) and Dillon (30 rushing, 49 receiving) combined for 188 yards from scrimmage, the second straight game the duo has approached 200 themselves.
