If you're looking for the player who might be the biggest factor in the Packers being an also-ran and a championship contender, look no further than Aaron Jones, Green Bay's emerging standout running back.
Cory Jennerjohn of Cheesehead TV asserts that Jones may be the biggest X-factor in winning a championship this season:
Once the running game gets going for the Packers, everything else clicks. In years past, it seemed to be the opposite. Get the pass going and sprinkle in the run. The Packers have future Hall of Fame quarterback and plenty of young talent at receiver. Yet, the measuring stick for a championship level team has been and will be the running game.
And not just any running game, but a running game with a back that has nine rushes of 10 yards or more and 19 forced missed tackles. Many people don't want to admit this but Jones is a bona fide No. 1 running back. Yes, he's 5-foot-9 and 208 pounds, but speed is the ultimate equalizer in this game.
