Aaron Rodgers engineered a drive of nine plays and 75 yards that took all of 50 seconds and was capped by a touchdown on a repeat play to Davante Adams that nailed the coffin shut - leaving the Packers at 4-1 and the Cowboys reeling from two straight losses at home.
In Week 3, Rodgers first managed a drive that ended with Mason Crosby's game-tying field goal to force overtime against the Cincinnati Bengals. Sunday's 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers made the Cowboys part of a discouraging stat. "I got down the sideline and put us in a position to win the game". And now he's done the same for the second time over the Packers' last three games.
Ten days after being carted off the field against the Bears, Adams already had a touchdown against Dallas.
Adams, who was in the NFL's concussion protocol last week before being cleared to play Saturday, made the game-winning catch over Cowboys rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis, who had broken up the pass on the previous play.
Aaron Rodgers didn't end another Dallas Cowboys season. It was the sixth and decisive lead change of the game. On second and two from the Green Bay 11-yard line, Prescott threw a fade to Dez Bryant. Jones finished with 125 rushing yards on 19 carries, including a 15-yard run on the final drive that surprised the Dallas defence. He earned 91 yards and a touchdown after weeks of being questionable with a bad shoulder.
"He earned the opportunity to start today, and he produced", coach Mike McCarthy said.
The good news? They won't see Rodgers again in the regular season. "We gave him the ball on the last drive, not only does he get through the line, and make a nice run, but the kid runs out of bounds". Just like their previous meeting in the division round of the playoffs back in January, it ends with Aaron Rodgers leading Green Bay to a thrilling win.
I honestly believe Prescott was the better of the two QBs on the field yesterday afternoon, even though Aaron Rodgers got the victory.
"The genius and the beauty in those situations is the moment isn't as big as you think it is", Rodgers said. Cowboys on top 31-28. A catch by Beasley was ruled a first down and reversed, as was Elliott's fourth-down plunge when he was ruled short but replay showed the ball reaching Green Bay's 19-yard line.
Rodgers lead a surgical march downfield that including three passes of 10-plus yards and an 18-yard scramble highlighting his seemingly magical ability to escape the pocket. Irving returned to practice Wednesday after a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Green Bay 35, Dallas 31. The Packers with Rodgers under center is now 6-2 against Dallas, the most wins against any team not in the NFC North. That gave the Cowboys a first down with two minutes left in the game.
