Rookie Aaron Jones humbled by Lions defense following bye week
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers continue to struggle on offense since Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone that ended his season. Rookie running back Aaron Jones was held to a career low 12 yards on five carries. UTEP's all-time rusher also missed an important blitz pickup in the redzone on Green Bay's opening drive, according to ESPN color commentator John Gruden. Jones did not see much action after that drive.
The Detroit Lions ended a three-game skid by keeping the Packers out of the end zone until the fourth quarter of a 30-17 victory at Green Bay. The Packers got their first TD on Brett Hundley's one-yard sneak with 9:52 remaining, but the Lions regained a 17-point lead less than two minutes later as Matthew Stafford hit Marvin Jones for an 11-yard touchdown.
Stafford was 26 of 33 for 361 yards and two TDs as the Lions evened their record at 4-4. Jones had both scoring receptions while catching seven passes for 107 yards.
Hundley completed 26 of his 38 passes for 245 yards and no interceptions, but the 4-4 Packers had the ball for just over 23 minutes in suffering their third straight loss.
