Aaron Jones expected to play against Buccaneers

Those two plays were pivotal in the Packers keeping their season alive.

No doubt, because it was another terrible home performance by backup quarterback Brett Hundley.

It wasn't clear exactly why a number of the 77,684 fans in attendance were booing - whether it was the play-call on third down, the fact that McCarthy didn't throw the challenge flag on where wide receiver Jordy Nelson was marked down or the decision to kick a game-tying field goal rather than going for it on fourth down - but the boo-birds were audible before Mason Crosby's 22-yard field goal tied the game at 20-20 with 2:01 left in regulation.

The battle of the bays, as it has been billed in the past, featured two defenses that couldn't stop the run at all, as both teams totaled 364 yards on the ground.

Peters was called for Unsportsmanlike Conduct after taking the referee's red flag and throwing it into the stands. Meanwhile, Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, who went to Teaneck, is not on the active roster for the game.


Quarterback Aaron Rodgers might be able to spice up the offense again soon, as long as the running game keeps churning out yards and the defense gets sacks in victories to stay in the playoff race. The Buccaneers (4-8) head back home to take on the Detroit Lions (6-6) in hopes of ending their two-game skid. It lets him know that we're here to help him. On the season Jones has 70 carries, 370 yards which is good for a 5.3 yards per carry average (YPC) with three rushing touchdowns.

"Obviously, Aaron's the guy in Green Bay".

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers out at least another week - and perhaps longer - as he comes back from an October 15 fractured right collarbone, the emergence of Williams and Jones could give the offense a different element when and if the two-time NFL MVP returns. Two of those matchups are road games against NFC wild card hopefuls, determined to secure their spots in the playoffs, while two of them are against tough division opponents. "We just came out on the short end of the stick", Winston said. "I just had to make the most of it", said Jones, who had 100-yard games against Dallas and New Orleans before his injury.

"We didn't protect Jameis", Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said.

Bernstein: Bears Get Everything Wrong In Stupid Loss
Gould was responsible for all 15 of the 49ers' points, hitting five field goals, including a 24-yarder with two seconds remaining. In fact, it's hard to imagine any scenario in which Fox coaches the team next week in Cincinnati - except one: it's the Bears.


Even if Jones plays, Jamaal Williams is expected to be Green Bay's lead back against the Buccaneers, the source said. Williams has not been quite as efficient as Jones, accumulating 224 yards and two touchdowns while averaging just 3.2 yards per attempt. If they can beat the Cleveland Browns next week, it could set up a scenario in which Rodgers could return the following week at Carolina.

"I felt good", Matthews said.

"Honestly I'd be fine with throwing 87 yards if we win them all", Hundley said. Or so they thought.

"But for us to kind of grind these games out and, specifically speaking about the defense, understanding what we are, and trying to force turnovers, like three last week, and that touchdown that Dean had this week, I think we realize we have to find a way to steal a few plays here and there".

Cotto continued to apply pressure in the seventh, but said that "something happened" to his left biceps in the round. The rapturous welcome he received upon entering the ring was repeated as he departed in defeat.


The Packers registered a season-high seven sacks, the most since they had seven in a September 2015 game against Kansas City.
