Even though wide receiver
The three will once again be competing for looks Week 14 against Atlanta -- a team that has struggled on defense. The Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game. They've given up 24 touchdown passes, tied for second-most in the league.
Between the three wide receivers, Jones' production has declined the least since the
Still, because Jones has to compete for looks in what is clearly a suspect passing game, Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura aren't particularly optimistic about his chances of contributing big numbers this week. All three rank him outside of their top 30 at wide receiver.
Jones and the Packers will try to rebound vs. Atlanta in Week 14.
Jones didn't have a very productive first half with Scott Tolzien running the offense. Jones managed two catches for 9 yards and was targeted six times. Though, Jones had his hands on a 6-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter before Xavier Rhodes knocked the ball loose.
Jones was then having a relatively quiet second half before making the biggest catch of the game late in the fourth quarter. On 4th-and-6 from the Minnesota 40-yard line, Matt Flynn -- who replaced an ineffective Tolzien in the third quarter -- heaved a pass in Jones' direction right before he was going to get hit. The pass was underthrown, but Jones came back for it and hauled in a 28-yard catch down to the 12-yard line. A few plays later, Mason Crosby sent the game to overtime with a 27-yard field goal.
In overtime, Jones made another big play when he turned a short catch into a 22-yard gain to the Minnesota 41-yard line after breaking one tackle. The catch helped set up Mason Crosby's 20-yard field goal. The 80 yards were Jones' highest total since recording 127 yards Week 5.
The Packers' next game is Thursday (Week 13) at Detroit.
