Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones came into the week looking for redemption after a rough performance on Monday Night Football. He did just that with a marvelous touchdown catch to open Week 8.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had all day to throw against the Oakland Raiders and it allowed Jones to separate in coverage. Rodgers hit the perfect back-shoulder throw and Jones made the beautiful catch for the 21-yard touchdown.

In Jones’ primetime matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 6, he lost a fumble early in the game then dropped a touchdown reception when he was wide open on a drive shortly after.

He clearly seems to be turning things around quickly. Jones is now tied with Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey with nine total touchdowns on the season.
