Packers top the Dolphins, stay unbeaten at homeSubmitted: 11/11/2018
GREEN BAY - For a change, it was the Packers in a runaway.

Aaron Jones ran for career highs of 145 yards and two scores, Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams connected for two touchdown 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.

"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."ft in the third quarter.


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.
