2016 Week 20 vs ATL (3 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Ripkowski had some good plays but the one which will haunt him and Packers fans all offseason was the fumble at the Falcons 11 in the second quarter. Already down 10-0, it was the first time the Packers seemed to gain momentum, and Ripkowski's fumble killed it. Not only did it kill it, the ball was recovered by a Falcon with one foot in the end zone, which put them on the 20, not the one yard line. Ripkowski ran hard, but couldn't protect the ball when it counted and not having Ty Montgomery on the field for that play is going to be hard to swallow for
2016 Week 19 vs DAL (4 / 24 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Mostly on the field as a blocker, Ripkowski has been reliable both on pass plays and running the ball. His longest play was a 20-yard run in the second quarter. On the play, Ripkowski ran off-tackle, and stayed low which caused several defenders to miss tackles, allowing him to break free into the open field before getting hauled down.
2016 Week 18 vs NYG (2 / 1 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
John Kuhn - sorry, Aaron Ripkowski--again stole a touchdown from the rest of the backfield, with a little help from several offensive linemen who kept pushing him from behind. On the play--the fullback dive Mike McCarthy loves to call at the goal line--Ripkowski was stood up at the line of scrimmage, but kept his legs moving. TJ Lang saw Ripkowski still upright and churning his legs and gave him a little extra shove for the score.
2016 Week 17 vs DET (9 / 61 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)
Ripkowski got almost all of his work in the first half, with Ty Montgomery getting most of the carries in the second. He scored his touchdown on a little dump pass where he slipped out of the backfield and was uncovered.
2016 Week 14 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The new "John Kuhn," Ripkowski gets a few carries here and there at the goal line, which will result in a touchdown on occasion. He was on the field for about 40 percent of the offensive plays, but his role is primarily as a blocker.
2016 Week 13 vs HOU (3 / 14 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Ripkowski was on the field for 24 of the offense's 58 snaps, primarily as a blocker but also as a short yardage back. His twp best runs were a 10-yard gain on a second and short late in the first half and a touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the game. On that play he dragged several Texans defenders the last yard or so he needed in order to reach the end zone.
2016 Week 12 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
If you thought the answer to "who will be the first Packers running back to score a touchdown" was Aaron Ripkowski you should play the lottery, and soon. Ripkowski bulled his way to that honor in the fourth quarter, pretty much sealing the game for the Packers. Five of Ripkowski's six touches (including one negated by a penalty) came in the fourth quarter, and he had two nice catches where he was wide open and then able to add a yard or two with strong running after the catch.
2016 Week 11 vs WAS (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Fullback was only on the field for 14 offensive snaps, and was a blocker on most of those plays.
2016 Week 9 vs IND (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
The Packers fullback wasn't on the field a ton, and spent a lot of that time blocking. He did run the ball a handful of times, and caught one pass for a first down.
2016 Week 8 vs ATL (6 / 34 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -1 / 0 rec)
Generally a fullback by trade, Ripkowski was thrust into more of a regular role, though he still only carried the ball a handful of times. On those plays, Ripkowski showed pretty good vision and a lot of power, though he was slow as molasses. Ripkowski did a nice imitation of a charging rhino though, bulling forward and dragging tacklers with him, keeping his legs moving constantly. He's very limited though, and of Knile Davis was more ready or Ty Montgomery hadn't been hurt, then he likely wouldn't have received even the small amount of carries he got.
2016 Week 7 vs CHI (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Ripkowski was the leading ballcarrier among Packers who weren't also moonlighting receivers like Ty Montgomery. As usual, he was more of a blocker than a ballcarrier and should remain in that role.
2016 Week 6 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
The Fullback got stood up on a third and short attempt but gained a couple of yards on a catch later in the game which saw him spin away from a tackle and gain yardage.
2016 Week 5 vs NYG (2 / 17 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The fullback got two carries both of which occurred when the Packers needed a yard or less to get a first down. On the second carry, Ripkowski carried several Giants players with him for extra yards.
