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

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

Here is a look at seven key takeaways from the Pack's much-needed win that gives the team hope as they begin another challenging two-game road trip.

A quick one-two punch by Jones gave the Packers a 14-3 lead.

To start the next drive, Mike McCarthy stuck with the hot hand at running back - a philosophy he subscribes to when it comes to rushing the ball - and Jones entered the game once again.

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

They won convincingly, 31-12 over an undermanned Miami Dolphins team, making marvelous plays but just enough ghastly mistakes to leave you wondering if an extended second half run is possible.

The Green Bay Packers are gaining nearly six yards everytime they run the football on first down.

Green Bay (3-4-1) has lost two games in a row against arguably the two best teams in the National Football League: the Patriots and the Rams.

"It puts the defense in a bind; it puts them to where they've got to load up that box and it allows us to have more opportunities outside", said Adams, who has seen increased double-teams this season.

Rodgers was sacked only twice and while he did have to scramble at times, he usually had an escape lane and turned a few pressures into productive scrambles.

Coach Mike McCarthy made a decision to take the team out West on Tuesday instead of the customary day-before-the-game trip, to try to get the players acclimated. First, Jones scored on a 10-yard run.

Still, overall, special teams is a big concern for the Packers and they need to clean up this area of their game or good teams will take advantage.

Mrs May appeared to be addressing those fears by telling City officials Monday that there "will not be an agreement at any cost". This was always going to be an extremely hard , extremely complex negotiation, but we are nearly within touching distance now.

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

Running back Aaron Jones' breakout game led to a breakthrough performance in the red zone for the Green Bay Packers.

Miami (5-4) is coming off a 13-6 win over the struggling Jets with Brock Osweiler at quarterback.

Jason Sanders tied a Dolphins franchise rookie record with four field goals, but Miami (5-5) couldn't find the end zone.

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.

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

Kentrell Brice was limited at midweek with a knee injury, while Jermaine Whitehead was released this week.

Their next test comes on Thursday night on the road against the Seattle Seahawks.

Rodgers was 19-for-28 passing for 199 yards and two touchdowns. That is a quarterback rating of 112.1.

After the game, Rodgers was wearing a Santa Monica Fire Department hat, to bring attention to the devastating wild fires in both northern and southern California. On the opening series, he had two rushes for 27 yards and two catches for 27 yards.
