GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Jones' bid for a new contract is paying early dividends for the Green Bay Packers.

Jones had a career-high 168 yards rushing, a team-high 68 yards receiving and three touchdowns in a 42-21 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He leads the NFL in rushing (234) and yards from scrimmage (312) heading into Monday night's game between New Orleans and Las Vegas.
