Brown would have looked really bad if he just stood back and let McCain make a play on Adams. If Aaron Jones touches the ball, good things happen. "That's the obvious", Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.
Jones previously won the award past year after rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints.
Jones isn't going to run for 145 yards every game like he did against the Dolphins, and Davante Adams isn't going to catch two touchdowns every game like he did. After Miami cut the margin to 7-3, Jones ripped off a 67-yard run.
In fact, Green Bay is looking pretty banged up heading into Week 10's crucial matchup at home.
The offense finally got the balance they've been craving, passing for 199 yards and rushing for 195.
Rodgers was sacked only twice and while he did have to scramble at times, he usually had an escape lane and turned a few pressures into productive scrambles.
Special teams have been a problem all season for the Packers and the Dolphins game was no exception.
Six key questions about Theresa May's Brexit deal
The withdrawal agreement, the draft exit treaty, is already slated to be comprised of more than 400 pages of dense legal text. Many were hoping for a second People's Vote on Brexit, now the reality of what was on the table was more clear.
"Kicking field goals ain't going to beat the Packers".
A slashing style and an explosive burst through the hole make Jones a threat to bust a big run on any carry.
The Packers got a much-needed win in what was their most complete game of the 2018 season. But if the Packers can continue to play off each other like they did against Miami, then maybe the playoffs aren't out of the question. Green Bay picked up safety Ibraheim Campbell off waivers from the New York Jets this week, while second-year player Josh Jones figures to see more snaps after being slowed by injury earlier this year. Moments later, Osweiler was intercepted by cornerback Bashaud Breeland.
The Packers never trailed on Sunday, holding the Dolphins to four field goals.
Green Bay, playing its only home game in a stretch sandwiched between two road games, rebounded from losses at the Rams and Patriots to improve to 4-4-1.
After consecutive losses against the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots, two of the best teams in the league, the Green Bay Packers needed something to go their way ahead of two more hard road games at Seattle and Minnesota. Two plays later he was in the end zone with his first touchdown. Rodgers finished 19 of 28 with the two scores for a rating of 112.1. With Jones running the ball so well, the Packers didn't need to rely on Rodgers as exclusively to keep the chains moving all the time. Also nominated for the award are Cleveland's Nick Chubb (176 yards and a touchdown in a 28-16 win over Atlanta) and Dallas' Ezekiel Elliott (151 yards and a touchdown in a 27-20 win over Philadelphia).
