Mason Crosby makes history with his big kicks

It wasn’t just that Mason Crosby’s never done anything quite like it — no one has. When the Packers kicker hit a pair of 50-plus-yard field goals in the final two minutes of last night’s win over the Cowboys, he became the first kicker to do that in postseason history, according to Rob Demovsky of…

Jerry Jones not ready to talk Tony Romo’s future

If there’s anything Jerry Jones loves more than talking, it might be Tony Romo. So the Cowboys owner looked up during his postgame press conference as his soon-to-be former quarterback walked out of the locker room, knowing it was probably the last time he’d do so. “We just won’t address any of that until later…

Jason Garrett on spiking ball: We wanted to preserve timeout

Among the plays that helped set the stage for the Packers to beat the Cowboys with a last-second field goal was a spike by Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott on the team’s final drive. A pass to Jason Witten gave the Cowboys a first down in Green Bay territory with 1:07 left to play and Prescott spiked…

Practice made perfect for Jared Cook on his huge catch

The dramatic pass to Packers tight end Jared Cook had a certain drawn-in-the-dirt feel, but they actually saw the same play in practice last week. And fortunately for Cook, he was able to make the most of his second chance, since he was out of bounds the first time they ran it. Via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee…

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten knows he has a “shelf life”

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten wasn’t necessarily talking about being at the end of the line. But he’s also wise enough to know he might have just lost his last best shot at a Super Bowl ring. When a reporter mentioned to the 34-year-old tight end last night that he had never been to the conference…

Tornado warning forces players, fans to stay put at AT&T Stadium

Any Cowboys who hoped to make a quick exit from AT&T Stadium after a painful 34-31 loss to the Packers were blocked from doing so by Mother Nature. A tornado warning in the Dallas area has led security at the stadium to have people shelter in place away from windows until the storm makes its…

Jared Cook: It was a perfect throw by Aaron Rodgers

The Packers are headed to Atlanta for the NFC Championship Game next Sunday thanks to some last-second heroics by tight end Jared Cook and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Facing third-and-20 with the score tied and 12 seconds left in regulation, Rodgers rolled to his left and fired a strike to Cook down the sideline. Cook made…

Packers get the game-winner as time expires over Cowboys

Aaron Rodgers wasn’t quite perfect, but Mason Crosby was. The Packers kicker had to hit his game-winning field goal twice, but he nailed the 51-yarder twice as the Packers beat the Cowboys 34-31 to advance to the NFC Championship Game. They’ll travel to Atlanta next week, but it will be hard to top this one…

Cowboys come back to tie it with Packers in fourth

The Cowboys had every reason to go away. They didn’t. With Dak Prescott making plays in the passing game and the running game eventually wearing Green Bay down, the Cowboys have come back to tie the NFC Divisional Round game with the Packers 28-28 with 4:08 left in the game. Prescott hit Dez Bryant with…

Dak Prescott picked, and then Aaron Rodgers is too

Dak Prescott only threw four interceptions all season. The fifth one might have been the killer. After the Packers opened the second half with another surgical touchdown drive, the Cowboys self-destructed again, with Prescott picked off by Micah Hyde and now they’re down 28-13 in the third quarter. They didn’t have much margin of error…

Cowboys passed on a chance for a fair catch free kick

One of the NFL’s most obscure rules could have given the Cowboys a shot at three points at the end of the first half today in Dallas, but the Cowboys may not have known about it. The NFL has a little-known rule called the fair catch free kick which allows a team to fair catch…

Packers up 21-13 at half, Cowboys ought to have plenty of time

Early on, it looked like the Packers were going to turn this into a Patriots-level laugher. But the Cowboys have done enough to cool Aaron Rodgers‘ hot streak, and only trail 21-13 at halftime of the Divisional Round game. And with a half to go and a one-score margin, the Cowboys have time to be conventional.…

Cowboys finally make a play, Dez Bryant goes deep

The Cowboys needed anything, and Dez Bryant finally caught something against the Packers. Bryant just hauled in a 40-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott at the precise moment they needed it, cutting Green Bay’s margin to 21-10. For the moment, it should stop those looking for Tony Romo to warm up, but the Packers have…

Packers not letting up on Cowboys, up 14-3

The Cowboys haven’t been able to pressure Aaron Rodgers at all today, and combined with their own mistakes, they’re already down 14-3. Rodgers has already thrown for 132 yards and a touchdown, and he was nice enough to let Ty Montgomery run for the second touchdown rather than hogging it all himself. Because so far,…
