Breaking down Green Bay’s Week 16 win

– Four takeaways saved the defence. The Dolphins averaged 8.4 yards per play, but the Packers got a game-changing fumble recovery from Jarran Reed before halftime and three picks in the second half.

– The Dolphins threw a couple of big punches early, but the Packers never backed down and eventually threw a few uppercuts of their own. This team is frustrating, but they are full of fight and resilience.

– The Packers managed to score 26 points on a day in which AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones combined for just 61 rushing yards.

– Keisean Nixon ripped off a 93-yard kickoff return. He’s been the best returner in football the last two months.

– The Packers converted three different fourth downs. All three came on eventual scoring drives.

– Dillon scored his fifth touchdown in the last four games.

– Mason Crosby, making his 256 consecutive appearance, made all four field goals and both extra points. His right leg created 14 of the Packers’ 26 points.

– Allen Lazard, Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs and Marcedes Lewis all had a catch over 20 yards. Patrick Taylor delivered a huge third-down conversion with a 17-yard catch.

– Aaron Rodgers completed passes to 10 different receivers.

– The Packers only punted once.
