It didn't happen as quickly as people wanted but, as they say, better late than never.

The Packers are back to.500. "And as the weather continues to turn in our favor, meaning the colder the better, I like our chances at home, but we've got to win some road games or we're going to be at home in January - for good".

One area where Jones' influence was felt was in the red zone.

Byron Bell, the Green Bay Packers' right guard, took the obvious approach when asked what it's like blocking for Aaron.

Here is a look at seven key takeaways from the Pack's much-needed win that gives the team hope as they begin another challenging two-game road trip.

"We're focused on winning No. 4".

NOTES: The Packers held what coach Mike McCarthy described as a "very limited" practice on Tuesday before departing for Seattle in the evening. "We improved as a football team the last two weeks, but you have to play your best football coming down the stretch, and that's clearly been evident the last two weeks".

Is it the 18 games he's had Ryan Tannehill as the Dolphins' starting quarterback the past three seasons?

You know like I said, the blame is on nobody but myself. "He did a good job for us tonight, caught the ball well on the first drive and did a nice job in [pass] protection".

Frank Gore rushed for 90 yards to lead the Dolphins.

Azteca also hosted a regular season game on October 2, 2005, when the Arizona Cardinals defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-14. The Rams will announce ticket information and other details for Monday night's game as soon as possible, the league said.

"It puts the defense in a bind", Adams said. "When you come out running the ball like that, it sets up the play-action and it takes the pressure off 12 (Rodgers) having to sit back here and work so hard".

Including all first-down attempts, Jones is still averaging 7.4 yards.

The 23-year-old clearly has the ability to be a game-changing factor that has been shown in the limited amount of the carries has received this season. Rodgers has been playing solidly despite the left knee injury he suffered in the opener, but he needs help. He finished the day with 90 yards on 13 carries, and two catches for 12 yards.

Had the Packers stumbled or let the Dolphins stick around, there may have been more doubt in the minds of the players.

The Packers have done a midseason shuffle at safety.

Packers: A defense already missing CB Kevin King (hamstring) lost two more starters in the first half when S Kentrell Brice departed with an ankle injury and linebacker Nick Perry limped off with a knee injury.

Darren Rizzi's unit blocked a punt, recovered a Packers fumble after a Miami punt and pulled off a fake punt to convert on fourth down.

Miami's rookie has quietly been one of the more consistent kickers in the league this season. Now the Dolphins face Rodgers, who has thrown one pick this season.

"Because the window is so tight, and he can create enough separation to where he makes that window bigger", Rodgers said.
