Packers beat Cowboys in Arlington again, 35-31

Once again, the Packers found themselves down with a little over a minute left and once again Rodgers engineered a 75-yard drive in just 1:02.

First, the aforementioned Aaron Jones shined in his first career start, finishing with 19 carries, 125 yards and a touchdown.

Well, that's true for the Dallas Cowboys in back to back weeks, because turnovers likely resulted in them losing two close games they probably should've won.

"With his eyes he said, 'throw a better ball, ' said Rodgers, who completed 19 of 29 passes for 221 yards and three touchdowns".

The key to longevity of the final drive was a clutch 3rd and eight play at Dallas' 31 yard-line Rodgers converted.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the truth, one of the best to ever play.

Unsurprisingly, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a runaway victor for player of the week honors after the Green Bay Packers came from behind to beat the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Enter Aaron Jones. The 22-year-old out of the University of Texas El Paso was drafted in the fifth round of the draft this last year by Green Bay, and showed signs of being able to provide a spark in the run game last week in limited work against the Bears. Elliott rushed for 116 yards and the Cowboys scored more than 30 points for the second consecutive week but it wasn't enough.

The Rams embark on a hard road trip to the first place Jaguars, who play the same style of aggressive, thieving "D" Los Angeles struggled against at home Sunday.

While the Packers came in with a record of 3-1, the Cowboys stepped onto the field with a less favorable predicted outcome. Adams went right back into the huddle and told Rodgers to run the same play.

Rodgers scrambled two plays earlier, on third-and-8, for 18 yards eschewing Mason Crosby and a potential game-tying field goal.

Back in January, he led Green Bay down the field for the winning field goal with less time on the clock than that. But the one play most will remember was the pick-six he threw that bounced off the hands of receiver Terrance Williams and into the welcoming arms of cornerback Demarius Randall, who took it 21-yards for a touchdown. That call was the one mistake Dallas made on an otherwise ideal drive.

"What we wanted was keep the ball away from him", Jones said, referring to Rodgers, "obviously we needed to score a touchdown, and we'll be second-guessing those last two calls, and I know you will, as well, for a long time". The Cowboys have a bye next week, and come out of it with road games against the 49ers and Redskins. It was third down and gave the Cowboys another shot at the end zone.

Nelson praised Adams for his ability to mentally step back on the field after such a hard hit. What was insane about this particular play was how close it came to working - thanks in part to multiple players on the Packers seeming to think the game had ended while the play was still going on.
