Packers' Aaron Rodgers Engineers Trademark Game-Winning Drive Against Cowboys

Several of them for good measure. And again in the playoffs at AT&T Stadium last season.

Try sprinkling holy water.

Before Prescott's TD run for a 31-28 lead, there were consecutive challenges from each coach over a first down. But they had little impact on the game or Rodgers.

With the run, scrambling 18 yards to the Dallas 12-yard line. The drive was capped off with a fade to Adams in the left side of the end zone to win the game. I'm sure Dallas fans would be okay with that. The first clanged off the left upright in the first quarter, and the second was wide left in the second quarter.

The Dallas Cowboys activated defensive end David Irving from the reserve/exempt list and he is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers. The man just isn't human.

Second-year stud quarterback Dak Prescott had a huge game in a duel against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, but it wasn't enough as the Dallas Cowboys fell to 2-3 going into the bye week. Randall snared a pass that went off the hands of Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams and returned it 21 yards for a touchdown. He made it too, hauling in a twisting and leaping 12-yard grab that gave the Packers an NFC North leading 4-1 record. Starting at their own 21, seven of their 14 plays were rushes with Elliott carrying five times for 26 yards and Alfred Morris chipping in one 5-yard rush.

"In theory", Garrett agreed. You have to get some positive yards.

Rodgers completed 19 passes for 221 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Argentina draw a blank
Only four South American teams will qualify automatically for the finals, with the fifth-placed side forced into a play-off. He was pretty scathing of the organisation, supporting the earlier view of Messi , who has called it a " disaster ".

As Joe Buck was discussing the circumstances where Elliott's six-game suspension may come next week, next season, or not at all given the uncertainty of where the court system rules, Troy Aikman chimed in: "You talk to team officials, and hey, they do believe that some of that has impacted his play, and how could it not?"

That Nelson spoke after the game suggests he did not have a concussion because players in the protocol are not allowed to speak with the media.

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.

Enter Aaron Jones. The 22-year-old out of the University of Texas El Paso was drafted in the fifth round of the draft this last year by Green Bay, and showed signs of being able to provide a spark in the run game last week in limited work against the Bears.

This time one of the best rivalries in the National Football League came down to The Drive by Rodgers.

"The genius and the beauty in those situations is the moment isn't as big as you think it is", Rodgers said.

They'll have to, although this loss overshadowed a number of positives. In the first five weeks of the year, Zeke is averaging less that four yards per carry.

Now if he can only learn how to be a vampire.
