Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected for two tou

For a change Brett Hundley Color Rush Jersey , it was the Packers in a runaway.Aaron Jones ran for career highs of 145 yards and two scores, chdown passes and the Green Bay beat the Miami Dolphins 31-12 on Sunday.The Packers (4-4-1) pulled away in the second half, sandwiching scoring drives around cornerback Bashaud Breeland‘s interception deep in Miami territory. Green Bay went ahead 28-12 on Adams’ 25-yard touchdown catch with 7:24 left in the third quarter.“This league has always been about big plays,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “You can’t score points without big plays and you have to make big plays to win the game.”Maybe this is the victory that will get the Packers going in the tight NFC North race following a choppy first half of the season.Jason Sanders tied a Dolphins franchise rookie record with four field goals, but Miami (5-5) couldn’t find the end zone. The Dolphins squandered another opportunity on the game-opening drive after Brock Osweiler fumbled away a shotgun snap.The Packers cashed in on that turnover, too, when Rodgers and Adams connected on their first touchdown for a 7-0 lead.“We turned it over and we didn’t take advantage of opportunities,” Dolphins coach Adam Gase said.His defense also had trouble slowing down Jones, who finished with 15 carries to give Green Bay some much-needed balance.A slashing style and an explosive burst through the hole make Jones a threat to bust a big run on any carry. He accounted for 54 yards of total offense on the opening drive alone.Jones added a career-long 67-yarder to give him 96 yards on four carries in the first quarter alone.“We got the run game going. We had a lot more balance, which we hadn’t had all season,” said Rodgers, who was 19 of 28 for 199 yards.Adams had four catches for 57 yards.BROCK STOPS HEREOsweiler was 23 of 37 for 213 yards in his fifth start for the injured Ryan Tannehill. Miami had 294 yards of total offense, an admirable effort given that they were missing three starting offensive linemen.But Osweiler was sacked six times, including three straight plays late in the fourth quarter.“Overall, I just need to be better and this organization deserves better because we left a lot on the table out there tonight,” Osweiler said.RECORD RUNA 9-yard run with about 3? minutes left in the first quarter put Miami’s Frank Gore over the 500-yard mark for an NFL-record 14th straight season. He broke a tie with Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton.RUNNING AWAYJones said he had about 10 family members, including both of his parents Quinten Rollins Jersey , in the stands at Lambeau to watch his career night.“It means a lot. I didn’t tell anybody, but I made this game for my parents. So now I’ve got two touchdown balls to give to both of them,” he said. “It works out. It’s a blessing.”COSTLY KICKSanders booted a kickoff out of bounds after his fourth field goal to allow the Packers to start their next drive at the 40, which ended with a 10-yard touchdown run by Jones.UNDAUNTED DOLPHINSGase said the team believed they could win on Sunday despite so many injuries, not including the ones that happened during the game. Miami forced two turnovers on special teams, blocking a punt and forcing Tramon Williams to fumble on a return for good field position each time.“That field position, we didn’t take advantage of,” Gase said. “Those type of things, you can’t do against this guy (Rodgers). You do that, it’s just a matter of time before he makes it right.”INJURIESDolphins: RB Kenyan Drake left with a knee injury the second quarter. … WRs Davante Parker (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (leg) left in the third quarter.Packers: A defense already missing CB Kevin King (hamstring) lost two more starters in the first half when S Kentrell Brice departed with an ankle injury and linebacker Nick Perry limped off with a knee injury. Brice (knee) and Perry (ankle) had been on the injury report last week for other ailments. … OL Lucas Patrick (concussion protocol) did not return after taking a hard hit while returning a short kickoff in the first quarter. … In the fourth quarter, Breeland left with a groin injury.UP NEXTDolphins: Have a bye next week before a trip to Indianapolis on Nov. 25.Packers: Visit the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on record saying he wants to play in London before he retires. Rodgers spoke of that possibility when discussing his “bucket list” a few years ago, but the Green and Gold have yet to make a trip overseas.That could all change in 2019. On Wednesday, the NFL announced the home teams for the five International Series games next season, which will consist of four games in London and one in Mexico City. One of those host teams is on the Packers’ schedule already as a road game: the Los Angeles Chargers.The NFL would be wise to take this opportunity to send that Packers-Chargers game to London. Packers team president Mark Murphy has said in the past that the team is unwilling to give up a home game to play across the Atlantic Ocean, citing the financial impact to the community if it were to lose a game. That is also one of the reasons why the Packers have not played a road game in London, either — because their fans travel well, their road opponents also have requested to keep their games against Green Bay in their true home stadiums to boost tourism revenue.Of course https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Anton … son-Jersey , that should not be a major concern for the Chargers, particularly now that they are playing in the Los Angeles area. The StubHub Center in Carson has a listed capacity of just 27,000, and the Chargers are still scheduled to play in that stadium through the 2019 season. When factoring that in, making the decision to move that game to London seems like a slam dunk.However, after the league’s announcement, Rob Demovsky of ESPN threw a wet blanket on this idea. Demovsky reported that a source said the Packers “aren’t expected” to be the Chargers’ opponent in that international game. This is hardly official, and the league could still send the Packers overseas, but the fact that such a report came out so quickly after the home teams were announced is discouraging.Unfortunately, that Chargers game will be Green Bay’s only opportunity next season to play an International Series game. The five teams scheduled to “host” the five games next year are the Buccaneers, Chargers, Jaguars, Raiders, and Rams. 14 of the Packers’ 16 opponents for next season are already set, and they could play as many as two of these other four teams, but both of those games will be at home. The Packers have a game against the Raiders locked in on the schedule, but that game will be at Lambeau Field Vince Biegel Color Rush Jersey , since the last game between the two franchises was in Oakland. Green Bay could also end up with a game against the Buccaneers on the schedule, if the two teams finish in the same positions in their divisions, but that game would be in Green Bay as well. The Packers’ opponents in 2019 are as follows:Home games: Bears, Lions, Vikings; Eagles, Washington, Broncos, Raiders; NFC South teamRoad games: Bears, Lions, Vikings; Cowboys, Giants, Chargers, Chiefs, NFC West teamNote that the Packers cannot play the Rams, because they have clinched the NFC West and Green Bay was guaranteed not to finish in first place in the NFC North after last week’s games.
