Aaron Rodgers may not be able to move around the field as well as he does most weeks, but he’s still found a way to lead his team back from an eight-point deficit in the third quarter.
The Packers have scored touchdowns on both drives after DeMarco Murray’s touchdown opened up a 21-13 Dallas lead and they lead 26-21 after a failed two-point conversion after the second score.
Rodgers has looked as good as he’s looked all game on the two scoring drives. He hooked up with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb to move the Pack into Dallas territory and then hooked up with Adams on a third-and-15 play that the rookie turned into a 48-yard touchdown. On the next drive, Rodgers completed all seven passes he threw including a 13-yard dart to Richard Rodgers for the go-ahead points.
Aaron Rodgers would normally have run on that play because there was a lot of space, but he physically couldn’t make that happen. His arm’s still working well, though, and that may be enough to keep Green Bay unbeaten in Green Bay this year.
We’ll see if the Cowboys go to the ground as they try to retake the lead. Their last drive failed after back-to-back sacks of Romo after moving the ball into Green Bay’s half of the field.
