After completions to Davante Adams and Martellus Bennett, as well as a long run by rookie Aaron Jones, the Packers were in field goal range.

A field goal would have tied it, but Rodgers brought the Packers down the field and capped the game with a TD to Davante Adams for the win.

Dak Prescott had given the Cowboys the lead with an 11-yard run with 1:13 remaining, capping a 17-play drive that lasted nearly nine minutes.

He led three game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime during the 2016 season.

"Obviously what you're trying to do (at the end of the game) is get stops on defense", Garrett said. "You've got to get better". We had a good concept front side and had an alert back side, which actually set up the entire final sequence.

No fan wants to rehash a loss, and the latest for the Dallas Cowboys was extremely devastating. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones clapped three times with a look of utter concern in his owner's box.

And Wade Phillips" "D' allowing just three points off four Rams turnovers was superb and another example of the growth from these young Rams. The Cowboys have a bye next week, and come out of it with road games against the 49ers and Redskins. Once in the red zone, Rodgers showed off his brilliance. This week the Packers overcame two missed extra points, as well as a missed opportunity on a fourth quarter try for a two-point conversion. Rodgers helped his team rally from a 21-6 deficit for an wonderful 35-31 win thanks to a nine-play, 75-yard drive that culminated with a 12-yard TD pass with 11 seconds to play.

When it came time to win the game, Rodgers gave Adams two shots.

Last week against the Bears, Lane Taylor played his first game of his career at left tackle.

The Packers struggled to find their footing in the first half.

Ezekiel Elliott, who had just 30 yards on 14 first-half carries, got rolling on the ensuing drive. He has rushed for over 100-yards in all three games against the Packers.

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. Packers take the lead 22-21. The Packers finished a paltry 3/7 on third down.

"He's done it before", said receiver Jordy Nelson, who was sidelined for reasons unknown on Sunday's final drive. He ran a ideal slant, uncontested at the line of scrimmage, for his sixth of the year. The one after? The game-winner. "Don't have much else". The next play was the incomplete pass to Adams in the end zone. The Denver Broncos, L.A. Rams, and Green Bay Packers all torched the defense for at least 160 total rush yards. 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.

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.

Then he threw consecutive back-shoulder fades to Adams.

With word that Andrew Luck is back at Indianapolis Colts practice, I picked up Marlon Mack. He's a great kid, but his vision is fantastic.
