When the Green Bay Packers give Aaron Jones the football consistently , good things happen. That was the lesson from Sunday’s 31-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins, as the offense got clicking again behind a huge day from the second-year running back.The Packers were a perfect 4-for-4 in the red zone this week, with Jones cashing in on two of the four touchdowns. The other two went to Davante Adams, with Jones setting up the first one,Meanwhile, the Packers’ special teams continue to be a blight on this team, costing them more opportunities and generally being a net negative thanks to a few big mistakes. It has been an issue all year, as the team entered the game ranked 25th in special teams DVOA, a ranking that is sure to drop even further.Here’s a look at those storylines in more as we get ready for a short week before Thursday’s game in Seattle.First two-touchdown game holds special meaning for Aaron Jones | Packers.comSunday was Veteran's Day , which holds a special place for Jones -- both of his parents served in the U.S. Army, so they will each get a game ball from their son after his 145-yard day.Win over Dolphins shows Green Bay Packers that Aaron Jones is answer - ESPNWe told you, Mike.Packers use fake punt to ice win over Dolphins | Packers WireThis was the one thing that went right on special teams on Sunday afternoon.Costly mistakes on special teams keep tormenting Packers | Packersnews.comRon Zook's job should be on the line.

Don't use hers!Packers Week 5 Inactives: Green Bay down two corners and two wide receivers The Green Bay Packers will likely have some issues in the secondary today as they take on the Detroit Lions. Although the team gets cornerback Kevin King back on the field this week after a two-week absence, the team will be down a pair of other corners.Rookie Jaire Alexander is inactive for today’s game Authentic JK Scott Jersey , along with recently-signed Packer Bashaud Breeland. That will put a bigger onus on King to stay healthy and productive today opposite veteran Tramon Williams. Also out is safety/slot cornerback Jermaine Whitehead, which likely means that Packers fans will see a lot of rookie Josh Jackson in the slot.On offense, the Packers are indeed down a pair of wide receivers as well. Davante Adams will play, but Geronimo Allison appears to still be in the concussion protocol and was ruled inactive. That keeps him off the field along with Randall Cobb, who was ruled out on Friday’s injury report. The Packers will likely start Marquez Valdes-Scantling today at one receiver spot, but the other starting position on offense is to be determined.Here’s the full list of Packers inactives for today.Packers InactivesCB Jaire AlexanderWR Geronimo AllisonQB Tim BoyleCB Bashaud BreelandWR Randall CobbOL Alex LightDB Jermaine Whitehead
