RB A.J. Dillon scores Packers’ first touchdown of 2022 season

·1 min read

The Green Bay Packers are finally on the board in 2022. Running back A.J. Dillon powered into the end zone from two yards out, scoring the team’s first touchdown of the 2022 season and cutting the Minnesota Vikings’ lead to 20-7 in the third quarter.

The Packers’ scoring drive went 75 yards in seven plays. Aaron Jones got the drive moving with a 29-yard run, but Dillon added an 11-yard run and rookie Romeo Doubs added an 11-yard run and a 9-yard catch.

Dillon has rushed 10 times for a team-high 45 yards. He also has a team-high three catches for 25 yards.

The Packers had a few close calls in the first half: Rookie Christian Watson dropped what would have been a 75-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage, and Dillon was stuffed on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line in the first half.

Last season, Dillon scored seven total touchdowns.
