Jones rushed for an unspectacular 49 yards on 13 carries, motoring adult a center on first-and-goal for a two-yard touchdown that put a Packers adult 21-0 in a second quarter.
The detriment of Davante Adams — who appears to have avoided a critical damage notwithstanding being hospitalized after a infamous strike late in a diversion — did small to change a Packers’ flitting attack.
Jordy Nelson and Martellus Bennett led a belligerent with 7 targets, while a former stays Rodgers’ favorite red-zone option.
