Win over Dolphins shows Green Bay Packers that Aaron Jones is answer

Who is Ryan Tannehill

20 things we learned in the Miami Dolphins' 31-12 loss to the Green Bay Packers

The question was about running back Aaron Jones. 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. Nonetheless, 145 rushing yards on 15 carries was more than enough to make up for his mistakes.

Aaron Rodgers, a Chico, Calif., native, reflected on the wildfires raging across the state after the Packers' 31-12 win against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Packers will surely know this, so Jones should get a comfortable amount of carries - he ran the football 26 times combined against the Rams and Patriots and piled up 161 yards on the ground.

Green Bay needs to win a football game.

The Dolphins haven't been good on offense all season and there's no denying that.

"But I'm going to focus on the things I can control and that's finding a way to get better as an individual, as a quarterback", he said.

Special teams have been a problem all season for the Packers and the Dolphins game was no exception.

Darren Rizzi's unit blocked a punt, recovered a Packers fumble after a Miami punt and pulled off a fake punt to convert on fourth down.

The Packers defense sacked Dolphins quarterback Brock Osweiler six times.

Gase said the team believed they could win on Sunday despite so many injuries, not including the ones that happened during the game.

Through the first 10 weeks of the season, the Green Bay Packers have tittered back and forth with their balance in the offensive game plan that has seen their running game being more a factor in recent weeks. Mike Pettine knew that Miami had to pass on nearly every down and he was able to devise blitz packages to exert consistent pressure on Brock Osweiler for the remainder of the game.

But they couldn't get into the end zone, and settling for field goals wasn't going to cut it against Aaron Rodgers.

Jason Sanders tied a Dolphins franchise rookie record with four field goals, but Miami (5-5) couldn't find the end zone. Rodgers finished 19 of 28 with the two scores for a rating of 112.1.

The defense lost three key contributors in this game included starting safety Kentrell Brice (ankle), linebacker Nick Perry (knee) and cornerback Bashaud Breeland (goin). Brown hit him from behind negating the play. Up next are road games on Thursday night at Seattle (4-5) and at NFC North rival Minnesota (5-3-1).

Green Bay may need a "run the table" type of streak to get into the postseason.

The Packers QB threw to seven different receivers in this game including three different tight ends (Jimmy Graham, Lance Kendricks and Marcedes Lewis) who had one catch each.

Adams had four catches for 57 yards. "There were a few opportunities where we were trying to do certain things with Kenyan that didn't work out the way we wanted to where we were trying to get him the ball".
