Wow that was an insane game. Aaron Rodgers lead the Packers past everyone’s new favorite team the Dallas Cowboys in a close 34-31 game. Rodgers had an amazing game he was 28 of 43 with 356 yards and two touchdowns.  “I love the opportunity to go out there and make plays,” said Rodgers. “I was disappointed we had a chance there at 28-13 to go up three scores and make it really difficult for ’em and I threw a pick there on third down. We were able to come down and have two good drives toward the end of the game.” The Packers quarterback loved his tight ends as Jared Cook had 6 catches for 104 yards and a touchdown. Also Richard Rodgers had a 34 yard touchdown catch.  Aaron Rodgers lead a game winning drive that included a great 36 yard pass to Cook which eventually lead to a 51 yard Mason Crosby field goal to win the game. “It’s kind of a blur right now,” Crosby said about the game winning kick. “When we have 35 seconds on the clock and that our offense can move the ball into field goal range and a manageable kick, that’s just special.”  Jared Cook also commented on the important play stating, “I saw him rolling to the right it was underneath coverage in front of me. If I got over the top of them, Aaron would put the ball in the right place. Put it right on the sideline with enough room to get my feet down. It was a heck of a throw by him.”

It was a rough start for the Cowboys but they almost managed to pull out a victory with their dynamic rookie combo. Dak Prescott was 24 of 38 throwing for 302 yards and three touchdowns. Also rookie runningback Ezekial Elliott had 22 carries for 125 yards. Prescott’s favorite target was Dez Bryant who had 9 catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns. “We’re not going to stop no matter what the score is, no matter the game,” Prescott said about the team’s comeback. “It shows the true character of this team.”  Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones commented about the loss saying, “I thought we were a team that was capable of taking this thing all the way. I know we are now after that second half.”  The Cowboys have now not made it past the division playoffs since 1995.

The Cowboys face the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday.
