Cowboys Lose on Late Aaron Rodgers Touchdown

And as Rodgers tossed a "perfect ball" into the outstretched arms of Adams in the end zone, the Cowboys faithful saw flashbacks to the team's 34-31 playoff loss to Green Bay in January - when Packers kicker Mason Crosby nailed a 51-yard field goal as time expired. When a team scores 30-plus points at home one would think they should come away with the win.

But as frustrating as the offense has been, the defense has by far been the weakest component of this team. But, one thing is for sure.

Here are the three most important Packers takeaways from the thriller in Dallas. As always, please feel free to provide your own thoughts and opinions in the comment section at the end of the article. The confidence to find Tyler Higbee for 35 yards and Robert Woods for 20 and even position the Rams for a win show an immensely improved quarterback who can compartmentalize earlier gaffes.

Sunday night marked yet another dramatic matchup in which the Green Bay Packers pulled off with a victory. Ezekial Elliot tore up the Packers defense on the drive, and Green Bay bit on the play. He threw two TDs to Cole Beasley and another to Dez Bryant.

While the Packers certainly miss Ty Montgomery and his playmaking ability, it comes as a pleasant surprise to see their late round draft pick stepping up and playing incredibly well in such a tough environment. The defense was torched in the second half in the air with Aaron Rodgers and on the ground by former UTEP and El Paso Burges running back Aaron Jones.

In the loss, Prescott threw for 251 yards and 3 touchdowns and ran for another touchdown.

His mastery of the Cowboys continues.

Aaron Finch off the mark, Glenn Maxwell off the mark as the two score seven runs from Jasprit Bumrah's first over. Aussie opener Aaron Finch, who put up a strong fight, also went down facing the Indian bowling attack.

Well, mostly flawless. If it had been without flaw, the touchdown would have come as time expired instead of leaving Rodgers with a minute and two seconds to work with.

Pass offense: B The only real mistake in the passing game was a critical drop by receiver Terrance Williams that turned into an interception return for a touchdown. The Packers trailed by four points with just over a minute left in the game.

The Cowboys, once again, proved they have no idea how to stop him as he rallied the Packers to a victory in a game the Cowboys seemed destined to win.

"I was going to call a different play, but (Davante) came back and said, 'Call it again.' With his eyes, he just said, 'Throw a better ball, ' " Rodgers said.

This was another terrific game, although with the stakes not almost as high as the one in January.

The ugly for the Cowboys vs Packers for me was Anthony Brown's performance. With a makeshift offensive line, getting an established run game becomes critical if you want to give your quarterback enough time in the pocket. Unfortunately, it usually paid off. "I told him before the game I have absolutely zero worries about him back there".
