"Aaron Rodgers on a two-minute drill, just don't know what else to say about him", McCarthy said. 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.
To be fair, Green Bay's offensive line has been a revolving door over the years, but David Bakhtiari is one of the best the Packers' have had.
Football fans are nearly always treated to great, memorable games when these teams play. Adams looked great and to see him step up on the final drive with Jordy Nelson absent was a very positive sign for him moving forward.
Elliott ended a three-game drought without 100 yards, matching the longest from his rookie season, finishing with 116 yards on 29 carries. Green Bay is 3-1 this season with wins over the Seahawks and Bengals. Aided by a two-headed run game and will-imposing O-line, Flacco completed 19-of-26 for 222 yards and a 98.6 rating.
Randall made up for his mistakes in a big way.
Our models projected Rodgers for 22.7 FanDuel points, and he finished with 24.0 points on Sunday. All the former Cal quarterback did was spoil a masterpiece from Prescott and drop the Cowboys to 2-3, two games behind front-running Philadelphia in the NFC East. After being benched and sent to the locker room last week, his pick-six interception was a huge play and a possible confidence boost for the third-year cornerback. Regardless, holder Justin Vogel did get the ball in position before Crosby kicked it and he missed pretty far left for an extra point.
While Lee is expected to return from injury after the bye week, the Dallas defense needs to find a way to not be so susceptible against the run when he is out.
The defensive inactives for Green Bay are all reserves; they should be at full strength with their starters.
"It comes down to little things being executed perfectly", Rodgers said after the Packers' seventh win in eight games in the series.
