Running Back

A.J. Dillon outpaced Aaron Jones with 15 carries to five, but Jones had a 7.0-yards per carry average while Dillon finished at 4.7. Dillon forced two missed tackles, but Jones was still a bigger focus in the passing game, catching all three of his targets for 30 yards and a touchdown.
