Top five performers for Packers in Week 10 win vs. Dolphins

Top five performers for Packers in Week 10 win vs. Dolphins

Is it when Miami had a healthy starting offensive line this season (which was all of two games), or when there's only one season-opening starter on the offensive line, like there was during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Green Bay Packers because of injuries to Laremy Tunsil (knee), Ted Larsen (neck) and Ja'Wuan James (knee)? With quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the field, the Packers offense will never run through Jones.

"Any time you play a quarterback that's as special as Aaron is, you want to limit the amount of possessions that he's able to have", Osweiler said. But I think our team has done a good job of dealing with it and you've got to win the preparation contest each week and I think our team has done a good job of that. "He did a good job for us tonight, caught the ball well on the first drive and did a nice job in [pass] protection".

After the blocked punt, Miami had the ball first-and-10 at the Green Bay 28 but failed to pick up a first down and again settled for three points. He added three catches for 27 yards. While Jones ran the ball very well, he had some large holes to run through and was often a few yards downfield before a Dolphins defender was able to get a hand on him.

An Osweiler interception and quick Rodgers TD pass would put the Packers up 28-12 a little more than two minutes later, all put sealing the victory for Green Bay. The bye comes at a flawless time for the Dolphins, who were without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill and three starting offensive linemen, including tackles Laremy Tunsil and Ja'Wuan James.

One area where Jones' influence was felt was in the red zone.

For years, Rodgers has said his goal is to go 8-0 at home and at least split on the road to go 12-4.

Packers fans are painfully aware that Jones hasn't had a heavy workload this season.

Jones' running supplied desperately needed balance to an offense that has played fitfully all season.

Entering Thursday, Jones and Williams both have 73 carries.

That's a hefty average of 7.8 yards per run.

The speedy Jones rushed for a career-high 145 yards (on just 15 carries), including a 67-yard blur that was the Packers' longest run in more than five years.

Sunday's Miami and Green Bay football game is has a kickoff start time of 4:25 pm EST / 1:25 pm PST with TV coverage handled by CBS Sports.

"He don't mess around", Adams said.

This play will be hard to defend. The plus side of that is he's fresher than most elite backs heading into the second half of the season and, should McCarthy decide to ride him down the stretch, he's ready, willing and quite obviously able to put the team on his back.

This was a game the Packers had to have and they did so in convincing fashion.
