Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has had a productive day against the Seattle Seahawks through one half of football. He’s reached the end zone twice at the break, contributing 12 points to his team’s 21-3 lead.

Jones has already notched 13 carries and converted them into 46 rushing yards. It’s safe to say we can expect him continue getting plenty of touches — especially now that wide receiver Allen Lazard’s first-half ankle injury has weakened the passing attack.

Green Bay is out front and has a durable running back who can move the chains and run some clock. Even if Seattle makes a second-half surge, Jones should remain a focal point of the offense.
