Cowboys roll over Packers to improve to 5-1

GREEN BAY, WI - OCTOBER 16: Cole Beasley #11 of the Dallas Cowboys is congratulated by his teammates after scoring a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers during the first quarter at Lambeau Field on October 16, 2016 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) Getty Images

At this point, the idea of putting Tony Romo back into the Cowboys starting lineup at quarterback feels like putting Val Kilmer back in the suit for another Batman movie.

Dak Prescott threw his first professional interception and lost a fumble in Sunday’s 30-16 win over the Packers, but those miscues don’t do much to dim another impressive performance by the fourth-round pick. Prescott completed 18-of-27 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns as the Cowboys went into Lambeau Field and smothered the home team. Prescott hooked up with Cole Beasley for two scores, found Lucky Whitehead for a 35-yard gain that helped dash any Green Bay thoughts of a comeback and looked as comfortable as one could be behind the Cowboys offensive line.

It helps that Prescott’s fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott remains a beast in the running game. Elliott ran 28 times for 157 yards against what was the league’s top rush defense and now has at least 134 rushing yards in each of the last four games. That was exactly what the Cowboys hoped for given Elliott’s draft position and college production and the two rookies have the Cowboys at 5-1 heading into their bye week.

The Cowboys defense didn’t have such high expectations, but they were in good form Sunday even though their pass rush never really got going. They forced four turnovers and kept the Packers searching for the offensive consistency that was once a hallmark of the team. Aaron Rodgers was 31-of-42 for 294 yards, a touchdown and an interception, but those numbers look better than the actual on-field product as the Packers didn’t find the end zone until the fourth quarter.

That was the first second half touchdown pass of the year for Rodgers and, much to his dismay, Packers coach Mike McCarthy is going to be facing more questions about what’s wrong with his offense. They won’t have much time to figure it out before hosting the Bears on Thursday night and, judging by the crowd’s reaction on Sunday, patience is running thin in Green Bay.

    This is what happens when the Packers play a real time…they lose.

    McCarthy takes over playcalling this season and it shows.

    Oh and did you hear their own fans booing them in the 4th quarter?

    Everyone that is not a Packer fan saw this coming

    Look over your shoulder, the Lions are roarin…

  2. jerrysglassescleaner says: Oct 16, 2016 7:36 PM

    We are BAAAAACK! 5-1! We got Lambeau field to turn on their team! Without Romo, Without Dez???? . it’s over! that 32nd over pick is OURS!

    Dak Prescott is an amazing young QB. Fearless. It was fun watching him play. And Elliot too.

    I also want to say shame on those spoiled brat fans at Lambeau, booing their team. Loyal fans support their team win or lose. What a horrible display for all of America to see.

  15. whenwilliteverend says: Oct 16, 2016 7:41 PM

    I wonder where all those people are now that said Elliott was over-rated and would be a bust in the NFL. Anyone?

    As of October 16th, the Packers can’t beat the top tier teams in the league. That said, the Packers are one of only 3 or 4 teams that you can (pretty much) guarantee to be relevant beyond December. As a life long Viking fan, I won’t count the Packers out until they’re actually eliminated from playoff contention. Rodgers is an All-Time great, and you can’t look past that.

  26. alcondragonblog says: Oct 16, 2016 7:45 PM

    Tony Romo needs to be humble and walk away this season while he can still walk!
    There is no shame is walking away being a millionaire, a father and trying to live the good life.
    Go home Tony, it’s over, go home!

  27. tjacks7 says: Oct 16, 2016 7:45 PM

    Aaron Rodgers has been consistently mediocre/horrible for 16 games in a row now. Missed several wide open receivers yet again even though he had all day to throw the ball. The Packers are done. Time to send Rodgers packing or to the bench and see what Hundley can do. He certainly can’t be any worse.

  28. footballfan825 says: Oct 16, 2016 7:46 PM

    Dak and the Cowboys will get steamrolled by the Vikings defense.

  34. cheeseisfattening says: Oct 16, 2016 7:47 PM

    It was only a matter of time before Green Bay fans turned on Rodgers. After turning of Favre, Rodgers had to know it was going to happen to him too so he was not all that surprised by the boos he got today.

  35. igocommando says: Oct 16, 2016 7:47 PM

    I’m surprised this game wasn’t closer. I realize aaron can still put points on the board, but he really is declining. Definitely thought the qb keeper that Rodgers fumbled was a bad play call. Short week for you guys. Good luck.

  36. asparatame says: Oct 16, 2016 7:48 PM

    Rodgers poor play coincides with his dating Munn. I love Olivia.

    Now if they can keep senile Jerry from screwing everything up and putting Romo back in. He is stubborn and stupid and poses the biggest threat to the Cowboys success. Ironically.

  41. trainwrecksryan says: Oct 16, 2016 7:54 PM

    As a Packer fan, they’re going throw someone under the bus really soon and it’s probably going to be the O-coordinator. Receivers can’t catch and Rodgers can’t throw anymore. Mccarthy is going to survive unfortunately. Everyone figured out his play calling.

  46. exinsidetrader says: Oct 16, 2016 7:56 PM

  49. hodag54501 says: Oct 16, 2016 7:57 PM

    As one of the few people here old enough to remember it, what we are seeing is deja vu all over again. Green Bay Packers, late 1970’s.
    Then: had offensive firepower but always seemed to be messing up. Today: ditto. Then: multiple injuries all the time. Today: ditto. Then: defense that is very much in over their heads. Today: ditto.
    I was at an exhibition game in Green Bay in the Bart Starr coaching era when the fans were so fed up with the Packers ineptitude that they started cheering for Denver.

    Then: Starr claimed he didn’t hear it. Today: McCarthy: “we have to go back to the drawing board.”

    I wonder if the modern fan is willing to put up with 20 years of ineptitude.

  50. fartweasel says: Oct 16, 2016 7:57 PM

    Packers just aren’t very good without free plays off of penalties. Didn’t get em today. Rodgers looks like a whipped pup.

  51. allight59 says: Oct 16, 2016 7:58 PM

    After losing to the Bears on Thursday night, we’ll get a good idea who’ll end up in the basement in the NFC North…I saw better play from the 70s Packers than from how they’ve played this season. With their easy schedule, they might eke out an 8 and 8 record, might take a hail mary or two tho….

  52. davikes says: Oct 16, 2016 7:59 PM

  57. usdcoyotesfan says: Oct 16, 2016 8:03 PM

    There has been some friction between Rodgers and McCarthy ever since the playoff loss to SEA. Rodgers doesn’t trust McCarthy’s play calling, and rightfully so. McCarthy should be on the hot seat starting this week.

  58. allight59 says: Oct 16, 2016 8:04 PM

    Great win by Dallas. They punched GB in the mouth in their own house, and GB had no answers. And how the boo birds were out……… GB fans are spoiled fair weather little sallies. They are playing badly, including Rogers, and they have one long season ahead of them.

    Another very questionable pass for a TD yet again today. The first TD pass to Beasley was VERY SIMILAR to the pass thrown to Dez by Romo in the playoffs in 2014, yet THIS time, it is a catch, even after review? The rule is ridiculous. Even Jerry Pereira, when asked today if he thought Beasley’s catch would stand, he felt it would be overturned. They STILL can’t come to a consensus on this ridiculous rule.

    Regardless, a big win in their house, and onto the bye to get healthy and come back ready to go against the Iggles in week 8.

    Obviously the Packer homers like Carl, Stellar, and Tokyo will still wear their green and gold glasses after this ugly performance. But how can any true fan defend this team anymore? The coach is bad, the QB is bad, the offense is bad, the preparation is bad. There’s ZERO accountability, and it shows week to week, dating back to two seasons ago. Every week I assume that this team has it figured out and will make the adjustments. And each week I’m let down once again.

  73. fartweasel says: Oct 16, 2016 8:12 PM

    Seriously..if the packers spent as much work on throwing, catching and tackling as they do on trying to draw penalty yards and free plays, they may be relevant. That dynamic was exposed again today.

    I think this is Dak’s team. The reality is Romo has not played a full season going back to last year. Since that time the team has rapidly developed a new identity and rhythm under Prescott.

    To this end the coaches would be creating a real problem if they insist on integrating Romo into an offense that at the moment, doesn’t need a change.

    Rodgers clearly has some major issues. Surprising that he has fallen that far that fast.

  84. canadapackers says: Oct 16, 2016 8:26 PM

    Some of the poor play of the Defensive backs is due to injury. Some of it might be that TT let both Hayward and House go before Gunter, Rollins and Randall were ready to play. TT also has put all of his eggs in the Starks, Lacey basket and that appears to be a mistake – injury and production wise.Most of the poor play has to do with AR missing easy throws and not throwing the ball on timing. He used to throw back players open. He used to throw back shoulder. He would never miss guys down the middle. None of that is happening now. They have the tools, Montgomery, Jordy and Cobb as well as Janis Abby and Adams – with R Rogers serviceable at tight end.

    As one of the few people here old enough to remember it, what we are seeing is deja vu all over again. Green Bay Packers, late 1970’s.
    Then: had offensive firepower but always seemed to be messing up. Today: ditto. Then: multiple injuries all the time. Today: ditto. Then: defense that is very much in over their heads. Today: ditto.
    I was at an exhibition game in Green Bay in the Bart Starr coaching era when the fans were so fed up with the Packers ineptitude that they started cheering for Denver.

    Yes, it was ugly for the Packers who were dominated in the trenches and were gashed for big rushing yards – 1st in the league against the run? Somebody forgot to tell that to the Dallas O-line and to Elliot.

    No, Prescott ended his own streak on a bad throw. He finally made a bad decision, but just like Church’s pick of Rodgers, it was thrown right to the defender. Ending his streak was on Dak, not on the D as far as whose to blame.

    With all that said, that is all you got for a post-game summary as a GB fan – seriously?

    McCarthy takes over playcalling this season and it shows.

    *********************************************
    I still think Rogers is a more talented QB than Brady; Rogers is top five all time and Brady is top ten; But while Belichick is a top five coach of all time, McCarthy isn’t even in the conversation. That makes the QB/Coach tandem of Brady and Belichick the best or one of the two best tandems of all time. The results speak for themselves. Green Bay needs to get rid of McCarthy.

He should also, reap the benefits of having the team assembled now, since he has carried this team on his back for most of his career, and all he ever got was bashed..smh….Luck is really stinking it up right now, for the exact reason, and nobody is bashing him!

    First I’ll give props to the cowboys as that is what this article is all about (that and the packers are terrible).

    The only undefeated team in the league is far and away the class of the NFC. Best defense in football, offense that is playing better than half the league… Call them queens all you want, they will still smash your team.

  118. gawainsghost says: Oct 16, 2016 9:11 PM

    The reason why Prescott is playing so well is because he’s not playing to prove something–he’s just playing. The entire rest of the team responds to and rallies around that, and so they are just playing too, and winning.
    Take Prescott out and put broke back Romo in, and it destroys the chemistry. Under enormous pressure, Romo would play to prove something. That’s what leads to desperation plays, and losing.

    Sometimes you just have to take your lumps. Outplayed in every way possible. The team starts and ends with AR. He has looked horrendous and so have the Pack. I really dont know whats wrong with him. Even the biggest hater cant argue with what he has accomplished. Hes missing wide open targets. WR are dropping some of them, but its obvious he is just missing badly.

    GB is struggling, but realistically they are still 3-2. They have not been a great team lately, no argument. We keep waiting for them to emerge from the rut, maybe it will happen, maybe it won’t.

    Remember its not always how you start, but how you finish. Hats off to Dallas, who played terrific.

    GB needs to figure it out. No excuses.

    McCarthy has to go. I’ve been saying it since they overcame him and still won it all in 2010. It’s very obvious that Rodgers doesn’t believe in him. If you’ve been a fan and watched all the games and interviews, you saw this coming a long time ago. I don’t understand why they keep McCarthy around. You can argue TT, but almost all of his players that get cut from GB make it somewhere else in the NFL, and many of the Packer backups sign as FAs and start for other teams. The problem, to me, is clearly McCarthy, and has been for years. This team should’ve been dominant since 2009. Nothing will change as long as they keep him around.

    This team is a bit broken in one main area – QB play. And maybe a bit stubborn in the coaching department. But it’s Rodgers, and like a starting pitcher getting on a roll it will happen. Its gotta happen though relatively soon. Lots of surprises this NFL season. The Packers are still one of the youngest teams in the league with an up pointing arrow.

    ********************************************
    Not to mention the under appreciated other factor, the play calling. I have read other pro-Romo comments that anticipate his return by saying, wait till they get away from this conservative play calling and open it up for Romo…. Perhaps the reason the Cowboys are doing so well besides the play of Prescott and Elliot is because the current conservative play calling also just happens to have encouraged the rest of the team to embrace a type of discipline identity. They have by accident stumbled upon to a winning formula. They need to live with that awhile before they change it ALL up for Romo.

    Maybe they should convert more basketball players into cornerbacks. that appears to be working smoothly.

    If it weren’t for being head coach of the packers, I’d genuinely feel sorry for Mccarthy and that roster he’s stuck with every year. O-line is not a problem though, that’ll start next year after free agency.

    Thompson has to do something next year or ‘ownership’ should clean house.

    Despite playing some teams that aren’t considered to be very good, the Packers have yet to win a game by more than 7 points.

    Can’t help but agree. The Packers haven’t played very well this season, but there is a bad football epidemic this year…especially in the NFC. After the division winners, the one that doesn’t win the NFC east (Dallas or Washington) will probably get one of the wild cards. Beyond that, there isn’t a lot of teams that are better than this version of the Packers. Maybe the Cardinals if they can go on a run. I just don’t see 6 more losses on that schedule for the Pack.

    Didn’t you see the 3rd and 12 play when Rodgers got sacked for a loss of 15 yards, but instead they got 15 yards and a first down because the defenders hand brushed against his facemask when he had already been pulled down legally? That just isn’t enough anymore.

    My observations from sunday:
    1) Dallas and Dak are legit. Grats Dallas fans.
    2) The NFCCG is going through MN, Dallas, Atlanta or Seattle this year with one of those 4 being the away team.
    3) The Packers secondary is a house of cards, one injury and they are completely over their heads.
    4) Packers offense needs to dramatically improve to even be considered mediocre.
    5) Lacy looks just as fat as last year, apparently he fell off the wagon and into a food truck.
    6) The “cure” for the Packers ailments coming on Thursday is in fact a double edged curse for the Packers in disguise. If the Packers beat the Bears it will convince them that nothing needs to change because they will be an over-inflated 4-2. IF they lose to the lowly bears, at lambeau, the Packers will collapse into disarray and scape goats not named McCarthy or Thompson will be sacrificed.

Look at the schedule going forward, how many games not involving your team are you excited about? Vikings-Cowboys is looking good. I was looking forward to Steelers-Patriots but that lost it’s luster with the loss of Ben R. Seriously though it used to be rare to have a week without a good matchup to look forward to.
