The Packers are 4-0-1 at home but 0-4 on the road. "I like that range for him".

But perhaps the plan they used Sunday to beat the Miami Dolphins - a whole lot of speedy running back Aaron Jones - will be the one they take with them when they hop on a plane to Seattle nearly exactly 48 hours after they wrapped up their 31-12 victory at Lambeau Field.

It's crunch time for the Green Bay Packers with the season getting late and the NFC North division slipping away from them. "He plays real fast and he's really talented". That's what I get paid to do. Jason Sanders accounted for all the scoring with four field goals.

Let's not fool ourselves here. It is something that star quarterback Aaron Rodgers has keenly noticed that has led to him to vouch to see Jones continue to get more chance to make an impact on the game, according to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Jones' big day was the attention-grabber for fans, but Rodgers was very efficient too.

McCarthy has been giving lip-service to a balanced offense for years.

Backups came in and played well for the Pack including Raven Greene, Tony Brown and Kyler Fackrell, but Russell Wilson will provide the defense with a much bigger challenge than Osweiler did. Rodgers was 19-of-28 passing for 199 yards and two touchdowns.

Jones is a dynamic runner who finds a way to gain extra yards that most RBs will not pick up on identical plays.

Blake Martinez, playing a tender ankle, led Green Bay's defense with nine tackles. "You do that, it's just a matter of time before he makes it right".

Coach Mike McCarthy chose to take the team out West on Tuesday instead of the customary day-before-the-game trip, to try to get the players acclimated.

Both batting champions won MVP awards for the first time since San Francisco's Buster Posey and Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in 2012. Trout, 27, led the entire Major League Baseball in OPS (1.088), on-base percentage (.460) and finished in second place.

"We're focused on winning No. 4".

It's little consolation that the losses have come against two of the league's best teams, the Rams and Patriots.

Dolphins: RB Kenyan Drake left with a knee injury in the second quarter.

That's a hefty average of 7.8 yards per run. "It all starts up front with the blocking unit".

Green Bay may need a "run the table" type of streak to get into the postseason. Today, Mike McCarthy finally listened, and the results were outstanding.

"Of course, I could". Jones said. "I don't think I've ever run 21 miles (per hour) before in my life". "Hard work pays off. So, thank you, you made me feel better".

The Packers' success continued whenever Jones was in the game, although he did have two false start penalties called against him.

A Rodgers and Jones tandem could free up an offense that has been stuck in the mud.

"Well, it slows down the rush for sure and opens up the potential for some play-action stuff", quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.
