The Green Bay Packers lead the Chicago Bears 10-6 at halftime. However, the Packers have left plenty of plays out on the field and ended up punting on three straight drives after opening with a Jordan Love touchdown pass to Romeo Doubs.
What happened to the Packers’ offense to make it stall so much? Obviously, with such young players, there are going to be mistakes. However, it is worth noting that on the opening drive, Aaron Jones rushed the ball five times for 24 yards.
Since then, he has not received a single carry.
And Packers fans are not happy.
Green Bay Packers Fans React to Aaron Jones Being Taken Out of the Game Plan
Last season, the Packers were 4-1 when Jones had 15 or more carries. The recipe for winning is right there: feed Jones. For some reason, though, Green Bay constantly goes away from him, and fans are not happy.

Did Aaron Jones get lost going to the bathroom or something?? Like why is he nowhere to be found??

It is so confusing as to why, no matter who the coach or quarterback is, Jones keeps getting overlooked by his own team.
