James Jones has scored his first three-touchdown game, helping the Packers take a 21-7 lead over the Chicago Bears on the road.
The scoreboard shouldn't read Green Bay Packers 21, Chicago Bears 7. Instead it should read: James Jones 21, Chicago Bears 7. That's because wide receiver James Jones, who is getting more targets due to the fact that Jordy Nelson was inactive today due to injury, has been the recipient of every single one of Aaron Rodgers' three touchdown passes. Since the Bears had scored first, that also means that Jones has scored 21 unanswered points against the Bears.
This is Jones' first three-touchdown game, but he's no stranger to multiple-touchdown games. In fact, he leads the league in multiple-touchdown games with four. Jones, who came into the game with nine touchdown receptions, leads the team now with 12.
The Packers will clinch the NFC North with a win today in Chicago, and if that happens, the team should take Jones out for dinner, because right now he's taking care of business single handedly. Well, except for the guy throwing the passes.
