James Jones Will Have Another Big Game For Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers will be battle-tested this week as they take on the Baltimore Ravens in an out-of-conference game at M&T Bank Stadium.

Coming off a very big win against the Detroit Lions last week, the Packers look to keep the momentum going and get over the .500 mark for the season and try to jump back into first place in the NFC North. The Ravens will also try to keep momentum on their side. They defeated an improved Miami Dolphins team on the road and surely will be feeling good about themselves.

Both teams will have some players on the injury list, and a few are big names. The Packers will be without Clay Matthews, Brad Jones and Casey Hawyward on the defensive side of the ball while James Starks will miss his second straight game at running back. For the Ravens, defensive tackle Terrence Cody is doubtful while Haloti Ngata and Jacoby Jones are both questionable.

One guy that won’t be on the injury list is Packers receiver James Jones. Jones had a huge game last week against the Lions. He finished with four receptions for 127 yards. One of his receptions went for 83 yards and a touchdown that broke open the game for the Packers, and showed how important Jones is to the offense.

With Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb getting a majority of the Ravens’ attention, I expect Jones to be targeted a lot by Aaron Rodgers and have another big game. This is the reason why he is my Week 6 pick to click for the Packers.

Here are my projections for Jones: six catches, 125 yards, one TD
