MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — When Aaron Jones crossed the goal line early in the second quarter, capping a 75-yard drive that gave Green Bay a 14-7 lead at Minnesota, the Packers again put themselves in favorable position for a victory on the road against a winning team.
That's a formula coach Mike McCarthy's backsliding bunch has yet to figure out this year.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Running back Aaron Jones' breakout game led to a breakthrough performance in the red zone for the Green Bay Packers.

This is one week to stick with the top running backs in daily fantasy football.
While there are a few high-end receivers in play, the way to approach this Week 7 slate is to go for the players with the absurdly high floors due to their talent and respective matchups.
These are the top backs to target and the cheap complements who make them work on daily rosters:
Week 5 offers a test of whether several of the surprising performers in the first quarter of the regular season will have staying power.
It also could show whether some slow starters are ready to get off the deck.
Fantasy owners should be prepared to move away from players whose fortunes are changing for the worse.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers might get injured inside linebacker Oren Burks back for their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

He was cleared on Wednesday to return to practice as a full participant.
BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (AP) — Police in Georgia are looking for a man who fled a traffic stop, crashed and ran off, leaving behind a child and backpack a filled with drugs.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Brian Gutekunst knows his first 53-man roster as general manager of the Packers is a bit imbalanced.
And, there still could be changes in advance of Green Bay's regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sept. 9.
But Gutekunst doesn't have an issue with having a whopping eight wide receivers on the team. Or, four tight ends and three quarterbacks — while having only two running backs and only four outside linebackers at the moment.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are keeping more quarterbacks than running backs on their season-opening roster.
Undrafted free agent Tim Boyle made the roster as the third quarterback behind starter Aaron Rodgers and backup DeShone Kizer. Green Bay's initial 53-man roster lists just Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery at running back.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The biggest stars to play for the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night won't be around for the season opener, and it won't be because they're backups about to get cut.
Demetrius Harris caught an early touchdown pass for Kansas City, and Aaron Jones ran for 34 yards and a score for Green Bay, then the Chiefs rallied in a game of backups and also-rans for a 33-21 victory in the preseason finale for both teams.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Injuries and unexpected developments have left the Green Bay Packers thin at running back with just two camp practices and two games left in the preseason.
Only Ty Montgomery, who has overcome injury issues in the past, and little-known halfback Joel Bouagnon have made it through camp unscathed.
The Packers were forced to sign Bronson Hill and LeShun Daniels over the weekend to replenish depth.
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka police are investigating the death of a man who was shot several times in an alleyway.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — It's hard to remember the last time that the Green Bay Packers won a game with only 84 yards passing.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers might be able to spice up the offense again soon, as long as the running game keeps churning out yards and the defense gets sacks in victories to stay in the playoff race.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Green Bay will be without linebacker Clay Matthews when the Packers try to pull an upset in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
The Packers made Matthews inactive for their prime-time meeting with the AFC North-leading Steelers. Matthews is dealing with a groin injury. Matthews suffered the injury in the first half of last week's loss to Baltimore.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Someone named "Aaron" is still making big plays out of the Green Bay Packers backfield.
