Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones ran himself into the history books on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. With his performance, Jones passed Packers’ legend John Brockington for third on Green Bay’s all-time rushing list.
Packers’ Aaron Jones Moves Into Third On Rushing List
Aaron Jones finished the game against the Rams with 90 rushing yards, which helped lead the Packers to a 24-12 win. Jones currently has 5,100 career rushing, surpassing Brockington’s 5,024.
Ahman Green currently holds the record for most rushing yards in Packers history with 8,322 while Jim Taylor ranks second with 8,207. Jones still has a long way to go if he wants to catch these two legendary running backs.
With three games remaining, Jones is only 63 yards away from another 1,000 yard season. He eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark in both 2019 and 2020.
Not only has Jones been an asset for the Packers rushing attack, but he’s also been a valuable member for Aaron Rodgers in the passing game. Against the Rams, Jones had 36 receiving yards and a touchdown on four catches. In 2022, Jones has 364 total receiving yards, which places him eighth among running backs. He actually has more receiving touchdowns (5) than rushing touchdowns (2) this season.
The road to the playoffs will not be easy for the Packers. They must win their final three games, and get some help from other teams in the NFC. However, if Jones continues to have performances like he did on Monday, he will give Green Bay a fighting chance.
