The connection between Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams remains a major component of the Green Bay Packers offense, but another terrific tandem is carrying a heavy load for Matt LaFleur’s team, especially as of late.

Running backs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon are on a roll over the last three games.

In wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals and Sunday’s 24-14 victory over the Chicago Bears, Jones and Dillon combined for 553 total yards and two touchdowns, including a 12-yard score from Jones on Sunday.

The two are averaging 132 rushing yards and 52 receiving yards per game over the last three.

Through six games, one thing has become clear: the tandem of Jones and Dillon is a foundational aspect of the Packers offense in 2021.

On Sunday, Dillon had a 36-yard run setting up a field goal in the first half, while Jones’ 28-yard run in the second half helped set up his fourth receiving touchdown of the young season.

The Packers are getting the ball to both backs consistently. Jones has 53 touches over the last three games, while Dillon has 39. The pair got the ball over 30 times a game in the wins over the Steelers, Bengals and Bears.

Jones and Jamaal Williams were a productive duo for years, but Dillon is a better runner and a surprisingly effective receiver. And Jones keeps getting better and better.

Feeding the ball to No. 33 and No. 28 is powering the Packers’ recent run on offense.
