Cowboys Have No Answer for Aaron Rodgers in 35-31 Loss

Here's a look at how the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35-31 in today's NFC showdown along with a standings update and whats next for each of these teams.

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. 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.

Aaron Rodgers had more magic in store for the Dallas Cowboys, who can't seem to find the mojo that carried them a year ago.

That final drive, one of the best in recent memory, given the stakes, started at the Packers own 25.

Should Dak Prescott have taken a knee at the one instead of scoring on a 11-yard read-option with 1:13 left in the fourth quarter?

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

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones ran the ball 19 times for 125 yards and a touchdown in his team's 35-31 Week 5 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

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.

Prescott accounted for four total touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers yesterday afternoon. Elliott was bottled up for much of the game but found some running room late and rushed for 116 yards.

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.

Green Bay, now 4-1, heads to Minnesota next week.

"I'm thinking touchdown", Aaron Rodgers said. Just to add to Rodgers's degree of difficulty on this one, or maybe to give the Cowboys a fighting chance, Jordy Nelson was suddenly on the sidelines with an undisclosed injury.

Facing third and 8 on the Dallas 30-yard line with 29 seconds to go, Rodgers said he had a good play called for the situation, but bad leverage on the backside forced him to scramble. But on the second play of the possession, Prescott's quick dart to Terrance Williams went right through the receiver's hands and into the waiting arms of cornerback Damarious Randall, who promptly slid in untouched for the score. Packers take the lead 22-21.

When asked about the first career start for the young back, his quarterback offered nothing but high praise. Their one loss was at Kansas City, though they were tied at the halfway point of the fourth quarter, and within a score until the final two minutes of the game. On Sunday it wouldn't be a field goal this time though. Moreover, just never allow him in. The veteran quarterback threw for 221 yards and three touchdowns and also bailed out his team with an 18-yard run during the game-winning drive.
