Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones' emergence adds to offense

NFL Game Pass

NFL Game Pass

This is not the unit right now that can get into a legit shootout with Aaron Rodgers and make him pull out the dramatics the way he did against the Cowboys.

The final throw went to Davante Adams for a touchdown with 11 seconds left to climax the victory on the road - the second time in 14 days Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to tie or win a game in the final 17 seconds of regulation play.

Rodgers capped a 75-yard drive in just 1:02, going toward the same end zone as in the playoff game. Week six is home to many great matchups, but which ones should you take your time to watch?

"It comes down to little things being executed perfectly", Rodgers said after the Packers' seventh win in eight games in the series.

Adams had been in the concussion protocol but was active 10 days after leaving the field on a stretcher on a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan.

On the ground, Jerick McKinnon rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown in 16 attempts while Latavius Murray added 31 yards in 12 attempts.

The last time the Packers played the Vikings in Minnesota, Stefon Diggs had the best game of his career with nine receptions for 182 yards. You can't even feel safe holding a lead with just over a minute left to play, just ask the Cowboys about that.

Also on the injury front, we learned Jordy Nelson missed that game-winning drive in Dallas with a back injury. Through five games, they have started five combinations; if Bakhtiari doesn't play, it figures to be Taylor at left tackle, Justin McCray at left guard, Corey Linsley at center, Jahri Evans at right guard and Bryan Bulaga, who returned to action last week, at right tackle.

The Green Bay Packers left tackle likes to say that he has "a bad case of FOMO" - the fear of missing out - and he's been missing out on a lot since sustaining the injury late in the regular-season opener.

Mike McCarthy said earlier this week the Packers backfield is not a one-man show.

Aaron Rodgers completed 28 passes for 311 yards and a touchdown.

Aaron Rodgers knows all about the wow factor - and given his most recent heroics in Dallas, there's no surprise that he was named Offensive Player of the Week once again. Rodgers made the grab as Lewis turned too late.

"That's the beauty of the sequence", Rodgers said. "With his eyes, he said, 'Throw a better ball'".

He was 25 of 36 passing for 251 yards and three first-half touchdowns, two to Cole Beasley and one to Dez Bryant, who joined Hall of Famer Bob Hayes as the only Dallas receivers with at least 70 TD grabs.

"You hate to ever have one of your key cogs not in there", defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

Keenum has performed well in back-up duties for the Vikings, but he shouldn't be expected to win a shootout against one of the best quarterbacks in the game this week.

There is no simple solution to slowing down a player of Rodgers caliber. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was being evaluated for an undisclosed injury.
