Dak Prescott throws pick-six as Packers regain lead

AP

The Cowboys and Packers have traded the lead three times in the fourth quarter. The Packers took their first lead at 22-21 on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson, but the Cowboys regained it with a 43-yard field goal from Dan Bailey with 11:45 remaining.

The Cowboys gave up the lead, though when Dak Prescott threw a pick-six. Cornerback Damarious Randall intercepted a pass that bounced off wide receiver Terrance Williams. Randall returned it 21 yards for a 28-24 Packers lead. They missed the two-point conversion.

It was Prescott’s fourth interception of the season after he threw only four all of last season.

It also was his second pick-six of the season. Denver cornerback Aqib Talib went 103 yards with a Prescott interception in Week 2.

    It’s actually sad how bad the Packers defense is. 10 minute drive to end the game. Yikes.

    =-=-=-=

    What’s truly sad is tjacks7’s prognostication “skills”.

  2. Betting we don’t hear from ole tjacks the rest of the night. A Vikings loss tomorrow to close out the week will bookend a great week of football. What a game!!!

  3. Packers undefeated in AT&T stadium! Jerry will petition the league that Green Bay never plays there again.

  4. No surprise here! Garrett could not make 1/2 time adjustments, if his life depended on it…smh…I think 7 years is long enough!

    Without a running game Prescott is just another Quincy Carter.

    You realize that Dak did a majority of his damage in this game while the running game was neutralized? Through the first three quarters, Dallas had 62 total rush yards, and Dak had single-handedly accounted for 26 of those yards. Yet, Dak in the first half managed to toss three TDs while Elliott had been effectively taken out of the game. It wasn’t till like the fourth quarter that Elliott came alive, because the GB defense was gassed. Elliott clearly put up garbage time stats.

    Give GB credit, they did a good job of covering Prescott’s receivers and not giving them too much space in the second half. A lot of batted balls that could have easily been catches had a GB DB not been able to make a play on the ball. Etc. Plus GB did a great job of owning the clock in the third. Prescott never got back into a rhythm.

    That wasn’t his worse mistake. Leaving Roger’s with a minute was

    The decision to throw on a short route mere feet from his own end zone, and to Terrence Williams at that, who is notoriously known for NOT catching with his hands (he prefers cradling the football), was indeed a poor decision. But, the throw itself was right on the money (watch the replay). Williams had it in his hands, he just couldn’t hold onto it, and it slipped out of his outstretched hands where it was caught by Randall for a defensive TD. It wasn’t an errant throw like the one he threw to Talib.

  7. So at what point do you tell a professional to NOT score? I’m curious because unless you have a crystal ball to see that nobody fumbles or gets a holding penalty…I want to know how you tell Prescott “Don’t score…” That’s just dumb.

    Look the Pack won this game, but the Cowboys will be around in January. Helluva team…helluva game.

    Gp Pack.

  8. Dak’s pass was pretty good, receiver didn’t concentrate and grasp it , and presto, bounced it up in the air where your not supposed to, Terrance is the goat of the week, last week it was Switzer
