However, this was neutralized after an interception by Jamal Adams in the Seahawks end zone, followed by a knee injury to Jones on the first game of the Packers’ next offensive possession, leaving Dillon the only active running back in the game with an offensive experience.
“The first time he left the game, he looked at me and said, ‘Do the job, finish it,'” said Dillon. “It’s like my big brother on this team, I love him to death so it was great that he believed in me, that trust.”
Dillon responded accordingly. Not only did he score two goals in the final quarter, but he also took an underpass from Rodgers and extended it to a career-long 50-yard catch who set up his second TD after the two-minute warning.
The work is not over for Dillon. If Jones does miss out on a period of time, the responsibility rests with Dillon and first running back Patrick Taylor to shoulder the burden of a backcourt who lost seven-round rookie pick Kylin Hill to a knee injury at the end of the season.
Dillon is built for that. He carried the ball 845 times in three seasons at Boston College and has only improved during his time at Green Bay.
“Very proud of him. He’s a great kid,” Rodgers said. “He’s a guy who has become very reliable and his catch and broken tackles and running on the sideline to get us out of a secured situation on their side of the field to finish the game and improve three points , I mean.” , that was sure to be the game of the game. He probably had the three moves of the game with the touchdown runs and that catch and run. “
Lock them off: The Packers got into the game on Sunday with the big task of stopping the Seahawks’ one-two against DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
Suffice it to say that the Green Bay defense passed with flying colors.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson hit 16 goals with Metcalf and Lockett just five times, which together hit 49 yards. In addition, 16 of them came off, with Seattle hitting fourth and 26th place in the final game of the game.
“We knew the offense got through them – well, it goes through Russell, but the passing game and these are the dynamic guys,” said cornerback Kevin King. “Chasing after these guys, they do all kinds of things. It was a team effort. It took all of the defense to contain these guys and Russ.”
