Jones rushed for 154 yards on 23 carries in the Packers' 23-10 victory over the Vikings to clinch the NFC North title on Monday night. He had two TD runs in the second half, from 12 and 56 yards, the latter sealing the game with just under six minutes left.
Jones is now only 16 yards shy of his first 1,000-yard rushing season, and his 16 rushing touchdowns and 19 total touchdowns both lead the league. He's just one touchdown shy of Ahman Green's single-season team record of 20 set in 2003.
The other nominees this week are Arizona RB Kenyan Drake, who had 166 yards on 24 carries and two TDs in the Cardinals' 27-13 victory over the Seahawks, and Giants RB Saquon Barkley, who had 189 yards on 22 attempts and a TD in a 41-35 overtime win over Washington.
