Cowboys Lose on Late Aaron Rodgers Touchdown

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas (2-3) has already matched its loss total from last season.

Over his last three games, Rodgers has thrown 10 touchdowns and just one interception, with a passer rating of 118.6.

Rodgers completed a series of passes to get into field-goal range, helped by a big run from running back Aaron Jones.

EAGLES 34, CARDINALS 7: Carson Wentz threw a career-best four touchdown passes and Philadelphia (4-1) continued its impressive start with a win at home.

Dak Prescott had given Cowboys the lead on an 11-yard TD run with a minute and 13 seconds remaining, to cap a 17-play drive that lasted nearly nine minutes. On Sunday it wouldn't be a field goal this time though. Someone should honestly check to see who truly own AT&T Stadium.

Adams, active 10 days after leaving the field on a stretcher following a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan, had seven catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

"I was going to call a different play, but (Adams) said to call it again", Rodgers said. "But you've got to be careful about scoring points".

What's the difference between Rodgers' second comeback win this year and his first? Elliott cranked out nearly a 100 yards in the fourth quarter alone, including a heady extension on a fourth-and-inches play on Dallas' final drive that initially appeared to be stuffed, if not for Ellliott's reaching past the 19-yard line. With no timeouts, the Packers could not afford to spike the ball if they failed to convert.

Just so you know, Rodgers is 14-2 against Marinelli's defenses. Or perhaps Marinelli should've rushed three, when he rushed four or four when he rushed three? Rodgers converted a third-and-8 play from the Dallas 30 by scrambling for an 18-yard gain to the 12 to set up the final sequence. He finished the afternoon with 221 passing yards, and 40 came on the game-clinching series.

Rodgers capped a 75-yard drive in just 1:02, going toward the same end zone as in the playoff game. The Packers overcame two missed extra points by Crosby to move in front 22-21 in the fourth quarter.

It was even more clear when Aaron Rodgers threw the game-winning touchdown, as those bandwagon fans were really ecstatic. He made all 36 kicks in 2015, the first year of the longer distance, but missed three last season. He also made a key catch on the sideline that set up a Green Bay score late in the first half.

And leading that early charge was Dak Prescott, who was stellar in the first two quarters, connecting on 15-of-19 attempts for 168 yards with a passer rating of 143.1.

The Cowboys raced to a 21-6 advantage in the second quarter. He ran a ideal slant, uncontested at the line of scrimmage, for his sixth of the year. "Don't have much else". And then the pass, a strike in the end zone.

But the real emerging star of the game was rookie running back Aaron Jones out of UTEP. The march required a reviewed spot on an Ezekiel Elliott fourth-and-1 run, but it showed Elliott reached the ball over the Packers' 19-yard line, extending the Cowboys' drive. His quickness, patience and ability to cut corners makes him a flawless weapon in the Packers' pass-first offense, and provides more than a healthy balance. The Packers won, 34-31, and advanced to the NFC title game. He's a great kid, but his vision is fantastic. "And he gave me that look and I was like, 'let's do it again" and he threw a flawless ball and I didn't really have to do that much".
