Aaron Rodgers: Davante Adams wanted ball on game-winning TD

Davante Adams said he thought Aaron Rodgers went to him on the Green Bay Packers’ first play to help his mental state after all he’s been through following the vicious hit he took 10 days earlier.

Adams, who was cleared from the concussion protocol on Saturday, caught seven passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers’ 35-31 win Sunday over the Dallas Cowboys. That included the game-winning 12-yard touchdown with 11 seconds to play.

Based on how new Falcons offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian talked preseason about getting Julio Jones more involved in the red zone, it is surprising that Jones has no touchdowns yet this season, in the red zone or outside of it. Jones has one target in the red zone with no catches despite running 11 routes down there. Jones leads the team with 19 receptions for 295 yards, but he’s not one of the five Falcons with a TD reception. Maybe that will change next time out vs. the Miami Dolphins, if a hip flexor injury doesn’t hold Jones back.

If you thought Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was on a roll, how about wide receiver Devin Funchess. Has 14 catches for 123 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games. He had only 23 catches all of last season.

For so many reasons, if I were to draw a map of my life, Indianapolis would have as prominent a place there as it does in my heart, an emotional Manning said. Why? Because the Colts chose me as their first overall pick, and it’s certainly nice to be wanted because it was my first NFL team, and just like your car, your first is always ingrained in your memory.
