Aaron Jones is lighting up the Minnesota Vikings on the ground as the Green Bay Packers are cruising in the second quarter. So far, the Packers have scored on a kickoff return by Keisean Nixon and an interception return by Darnell Savage. However, the offense is just now starting to get going thanks in large part to Jones. With his seventh carry in the game, Jones eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards for the season.
That's nine yards for Aaron Jones. He has his third career 1,000-yard rushing season #Packers

Aaron Jones is just the fourth Packers running back ever with three different 1,000 yard season. Ahman Green, Jim Taylor, and John Brockington are the others who have accomplished the feat.
Aaron Jones had 1,084 yards in 2019 and 1,104 yards in 2020 when he made his first (and only, thus far) Pro Bowl.
