Green Bay Packers Prevail Over Dallas Cowboys; Twitter Reacts


A dropped ball wound up in Green Bay CB Demarious Randall's hands for a pick-six to put the Packers ahead, but the Cowboys answered with a long TD drive to put the ball in Aaron Rodgers' hands with just over a minute left.

It would've been way too easy to go with the Cowboys defense this week for the bad, but I think they actually did enough to win this game. After coming into the game with the 28th ranked rush offense averaging 75-yards per game, Jones, UTEP's all-time leading rusher, capped the night with 125 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.

Dallas Cowboys fans have always been a fickle bunch, but they took it to new levels on Sunday.

The Cowboys jumped out to a 21-6 lead on three Prescott touchdown passes, but the Packers climbed back thanks to running back Aaron Jones.

"I'd say if anything the first catch on the first play with us on offense was kind of like, I was able to kind of exhale a little bit", Adams said.

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

Rodgers found Davante Adams, who may or may not have still been wearing his hospital band, with 11 seconds left for the 12-yard game-winning touchdown.


The Cowboys (2-3) have lost two straight heading into their bye week while the Packers (4-1) will get ready for next week's intra-division game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Green Bay Packers faced off against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5 of the 2017 National Football League season. Packers trailing 21-12 at the half.

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.

Dallas RB Ezekiel Elliott, meanwhile, ended a three-game drought without 100 yards, finishing with 116 yards on 29 carries, but the Cowboys (2-3) still slipped to a third defeat, matching the number of losses they managed in the entire 2016 season.

Packers: WR Jordy Nelson, who scored his sixth touchdown for the first Packers lead early in the fourth quarter, wasn't on the field during the final drive.

Dallas was in control for most of their matchup with the Rams, before blowing a lead late in the game. 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.

Adams has 16 catches for 219 yards and two touchdowns in four games this season. After an incompletion to Adams working against rookie Jourdan Lewis, Rodgers went there again. 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. I hit Davante on a back shoulder to start the whole drive. On Sunday it wouldn't be a field goal this time though.
