If you are a Packer fan with both of Green Bay's main running backs in your fantasy lineup, you were smiling doubly on Sunday night. Aaron Jones and Jamal Williams each scored a pair of touchdowns to help the Packers to a victory over the Chiefs in Kansas City by a final score of 31-24. Jones's 67-yard touchdown off a screen pass with about eight minutes left to go gave the Packers the decisive score. Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns, two to Jones and one to Williams. Jones ended up with 7 catches for 159 yards and added 67 yards on the ground.
It was supposed to be a matchup between Rodgers, a two-time MVP, Patrick Mahomes, the league's reigning MVP. Mahomes however dislocated his kneecap in a win over the Broncos on Thursday night last week. Matt Moore played well in his absence but not well enough to lead the Chiefs to a home victory.
The Packers are now 7-1 and will travel to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers on Sunday. The Chargers beat the Bears at Soldier Field 17-16 and are now 3-5 on the season.
