James Jones on hoodie: 'It's just Cali swag'

Call it the Hoodie Game.

Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones donned a hooded sweatshirt in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Minnesota Vikings -- an odd garment for an NFL game.

Every game, all season

The veteran's attire became a social media sensation as Jones put on his best game since Week 4, piling up 109 yards on six catches and a huge touchdown grab Sunday.

After the game, the San Jose native told NFL Media's Steve Wyche he was just trying to stay warm.

"It's green, it's the right uniform colors and it's just Cali swag, man, to keep me warm," Jones said. "It's short sleeve, so hopefully I started something good, keep me warm."

Jones made several ridiculous catches as the Packers pulled away from the Vikings to scale back atop the NFC North. Jones, like the rest of Green Bay's offense, had been in a lull for weeks.

Given his play Sunday, we'd expect to see that hoodie plenty more down the stretch run in the frigid confines of Lambeau Field.
