Packers hold on to win a wild one over the Cowboys, 34-24

The Packers took a 31-3 lead over the Cowboys on Aaron Jones‘ touchdown with 3:30 remaining in the third quarter. Green Bay, though, couldn’t rest on its lead.

The Cowboys scored on drives of 1:30, 1:27 and 21 seconds after that to make things interesting. If not for Dak Prescott‘s third interception of the game, which led to a Mason Crosby field goal to complete a 9-yard Packers’ drive, it would have been even closer.

The Cowboys could have scored again on a 33-yard field goal by Brett Maher to get within one score with 1:41 left, but he missed it wide right, allowing the Packers to walk away with a 34-24 victory. It was Maher’s second miss of the day.

Green Bay moved to 4-1, while the Cowboys fell into a first-place tie with the Eagles at 3-2 after losing their second consecutive game. Dallas lost to New Orleans 12-10 last week.

The Cowboys’ three victories have come against teams with a combined 2-12 record.

Jones rushed for 107 yards and four touchdowns on 19 carries and caught seven passes for 75 yards, while Aaron Rodgers completed 22 of 34 passes for 238 yards.

The Cowboys gained 563 yards, including 226 yards by Amari Cooper on 11 catches, but they were their own worst enemy. They had 11 penalties for 124 yards, including a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Jason Garrett for spiking the challenge flag, and Prescott’s three interceptions were killers.

  1. The Cowgirls are what we thought they were. Just average. Their first 3 wins were against teams with losing records. Now that they lost 2 games to teams with winning records they are exposed. Dak is not in the same conversation as Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, Big Ben, Tom Brady, and he doesn’t deserve getting paid like them.

  2. So can I roast Rodgers for throwing 0 TDs. Like how Brady was attacked for only throwing 2 TDs in the postseason? (Burkhead & Michel accounted for something like 8 touchdowns)

  3. all the points scored by the cowboys were total garbage. this game was over after the 1st quarter. packers are the team to beat in the NFL. cowboys are a joke. something tells me that Dak contract isn’t going to be finalized this week either.

  4. I think the head coach of the Packers should tell his QB to take a seat on the bench ,I got this !

  5. And.. seems there was something else to talk about…Oh, yeah, now I remember.
    Now, about that contract extension for Dak?
    Pay the man, Jerrah.

    🤣😁

  6. Aaron Jones >>>Ezekiel Elliot, Dork Prescott 3 ints. Plus my name says it all! Cowboys BLOW!

  7. The Cowboys’ three victories have come against teams with a combined 2-12 record.
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    But but but . . . Just three weeks ago they were bowl bound!
    They are who we thought they are.
    OUCH!

  8. LOVE IT!! Big win on the road. Still need a full 4 quarters of solid play, but the Defense is legit and the Offense continues to improve. Love being able to win the big games!!

  9. The NFC is up for grabs. Everyone is now gunning for the unbeaten 49ers. The only good teams in the NFC are the Packers, Saints, 49ers, and Seahawks. The Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears are close to being complete teams, though. One better quarterback can make a bigger difference.

  10. Would have been a better game if the NFL could find officials who aren’t blind. That last Prescott interception was due to the DB being allowed to slap the receiver not once, but twice, in the helmet. Very inconsistent officiating, as usual.

    Not a fan of either team, but I feel for the Cowboy’s HC being pissed at having to throw his challenge flag to get the right call. If you can’t tell a receiver gets both feet down on a catch you should stick to refereeing Pop Warner games. A successful challenge shouldn’t result in the loss of the challenge.

  11. Glad to see the cowboys get smacked around. Highly over rated team. That had. Soft schedule first 3weeks then exposed last 2 weeks.Jerry says Dak reminds him of Brady lol more like Romo I say

  12. Great road win against a highly ranked Cowboy team.
    But giving up 563 yards is still very concerning.
    Finally a true team win against a formidable opponent.

  13. The zebras did everything they could to give Dallas a win!!!!! That’s why I quit watching this crap. Fist time I ever heard of a do over fumble?

  14. Zadarius Smith definitely didn’t do himself any favors today. He seems like a dirty player. He always is putting his fist into offensive lineman facemasks. such a cheap move. and how many game stoppages does one player get?

    Jairre Alexander might not be as good of a cover corner as he says he is. he was getting roasted by Cooper from the first snap and was gifted a dropped pass as pick. If cooper catches that pass, he scores, and the cowboys can stick with their game plan to run the ball. cooper also had a stumble after burning alexander the following possession that should have gone for a touchdown. alexander could not cover thielan, digs, or cooper. he might not be as good as everybody is saying he is.

    Cowboys left a lot of points off the board today, but their interior defensive line is horrible. they could not stop the run and it killed them.

  15. Great road win in big D. This team has yet to put together a complete game and to be 4-1 at this point in the season…..props are deserved for LaFleur. Now on to next week’s Monday night game against the Lions at Lambeau. Go Pack!

  16. “The Cowboys’ three victories have come against teams with a combined 2-12 record.”

    There it is.

  17. I am surprise Aikman doesn’t suit up in a cowboys uniform to sit in the booth. He has to be disallowed from calling cowboys games. Every call on the cowboys was a bad call and every one on the Packers was a good call and the officials should throw more flags on the cowboys opponents. Aikman must be somewhat embarrassed by how he acts in the booth. It is embarrassing to watch him make such a fool of himself. Even Joe Buck had to calm him down a couple times. Troy is like that annoying fan at the sports bar.

  18. Garrett always looks like a rich kid whose parents have actually taken the car away for the first time. No doubt he made some smart remark to the official along with spiking the flag. Maybe he could coach the Vikings next year. Seems like a match meant to happen.

    Troy Aikman should not be allowed to announce Cowboys games. I don’t blame him for being such a homer but it’s more than a little irritating.

    You beat me to it. I was going to post the same thing. Every Cowboy’s game he does it. Romo is far more interesting and impartial.

  20. Glad to see the Packers finally have a solid running attack to create a strong run-pass double threat- they need that as Rodgers goes into the autumn years of his career.

    Cry much???

  22. Don’t worry Cowboy fans , I believe you play the jets next week so you can get back to the high fives.

  23. Remember when Jerry Jones compared Dak to Brady. Pepperidge farm remembers. I Wish every delusional cowboys fan stop making excuses for him. Dak not in the top 5 but top 20 of QB ranking for a good reason. Just meh

  24. The packers & their arrogant fans. Remember, you just fired your super bowl winning coach & the season is not even half way over. Your arrogant qb & young coach have plenty of time to implode still.

  25. A great win for the Pack on the road! But the most impressive thing of all is their ability to keep their traditions alive for so many decades. The Heart Attack Pack is alive and well!!

  26. Green Bay took two steps forward this offseason, and winning with Davante out is an impressive feat. Maybe we win a playoff game this season after all.

    Cowboys defense looked small up front to my eyes (at least near Jenkins). Aaron Jones on turf is fun to watch.

  27. Lmao, Dallas had almost as many penalty yards as Erin had passing. Now there’s a shocker. 🙄

    Now what’s not a shocker is a team gaining over 500 yards of offense on that Swiss cheese defense. With the officials, it’s like GB has 16 home games.

    Green Bay didn’t beat Dallas, Dallas and the refs beat Dallas.

  28. Fox really needs to remove Troy Aikman from future GB /Dal games. I realize he is bias towards the Cowboys for obvious reasons but his hatred towards the Packers is unbearable to listen to. Buck tried to counter it but Aikman kept at it. Troy needs removed ASAP.

  29. Lmao, Dallas had almost as many penalty yards as Erin had passing. Now there’s a shocker. 🙄
    >>><<<<
    What's not a shocker is that your post game banter never changes. Very predictable.
    Go Pack!

  30. But Dak was an MVP candidate? That is, of course, until he started playing against good teams. Now it’s clear he is who he’s always been–an almost average QB who lucked out with a great line and running game.

  31. I’m not making excuses for the Cowboys. They were beat soundly. But that is one of the worst officiated games I’ve ever seen. The PI on Brown was bogus. The last pick came when Cooper was being mauled. Gallup clearly had both feet in bounds and Garrett has to waste a challenge on it. I thought their was a bogus roughing the passer call on Green Bay as well. Just a lot of ridiculous calls. Don’t know if it would have changed the outcome but these officials are terrible.

  34. Use to think Viking fans were just talking trash when they said refs always favor GB but after this game I get it now. Cobb gets hit and his arm pulled down right near the SJ before the pass gets there and no call. Gallup gets his arm pulled back and his body turned before the pass gets there and no call. Gallup gets his head pulled down several times on the last pick and can’t turn around for the ball and no call and it conveniently happened on the side of the same SJ. The same SJ who flagged Garrett for slamming the challenge flag down. You can say he was flagged for what he said but we don’t know yet what he said. The first 2 are whatever but no excuse for the no call on the pick that led to the last FG. Not saying Dallas would’ve won if it was called but it’d be a different attitude in the comments on here. Officials must’ve been trying to make up for hosing GB last week when they forgot what PI was…by forgetting what PI was tonight

  35. Troy Aikman and Tony Romo should be banned from ever broadcasting Cowboys’ games. Aikman was unbelievably biased for his Cowboys today. He might as well should have been seated in Jerruh Jones’ box!!!!
    He made more excuses for the Cowboys than I’ve ever heard from an announcer!!
    The Packers beat the Cowboys and according to Aikman, it’s because the Cowboys beat themselves. He gave no credit to the Packers at all.
    I usually like Aikman as an announcer, but that was ridiculous today.

  36. Dak:

    I wouldn’t be looking to the 40mil extension that people think you deserve.

    Jerrah:
    Start the offer at 10mil tops.

  37. Those who are saying Jaire can’t cover need to relax. Can’t cover Diggs? Theilan? The guy allowed like 100 yards combined to them and contested every throw and would’ve cut it in half if he didn’t lose the ball in the sun against the Vikings. He had a bad game today. Everyone does once in awhile.

  38. Why are Troy Aikman’s eyes all bloodshot?

    He was ridiculous vs GB just like he was ridiculous vs the Seahawks on Thursday. They were dead silent during that game losing FG miss because they were so stunned/unhappy…

    Watching Aikman and Joe Buck is almost unbearable.

    On the flip side you should have heard Mike Tirico’s radio call of the Seahawks game on Thursday it was unbelievable…he is maybe the best in the business.

  39. A nice win, but we need to keep choking the opponent out and not go conservative and soft. Who cares if some stupid idiots say you’re running up the score or playing dirty. Go for the kill!

  40. Why were there no replays on either Kenny Clark’s or Z. Smith’s unsportsmanlike conducts? I thought that was shady.

    I wish Green Bay would just go all business as soon as the whistle sounds. Aaron Jones should stop putting stuff on tape that will make defensive players willing to cheap shot him. That goes for Z. Smith too – and Jaire last week.

    Been a long time since Green Bay had this many playmakers on D, but need to get deeper.

    giving up 563 yards on offense is a step forward?
    ………………………………………………………………………………

    It`s still a step ahead of your team, isn`t it? Oh, and congratulations on that season defining win against those rookie QB led Giants.

  42. “They had 11 penalties for 124 yards, including a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Jason Garrett for spiking the challenge flag,…”

    No, the penalty was for abusive language, not spiking challenge the flag. If you are going to say “F—” to an official, you better not use the word “you” right after it!

  43. I was glad Aaron Jones got that nice clean hit put on him late in the game. He deserved it for talking trash all game. The guy has 1 good game a year so he should just pipe down. Rodgers proved again today that he is the GOAT. He wins with trash receivers and trash running backs.

    ===

    Garbage yards. Much like your garbage, last place vikings. Bye, felicia.

  45. Pay no attention to Vikings fans. They beat a team that didn’t have their best offensive weapon, and who is starting a rookie QB, and pretending that they’re suddenly relevant.

    They aren’t.

    When the Cowboys play the Vikings we will find out everything we need to know about the Cowboys. If the Cowboys win, they’re a good team. The Vikings can’t win against good teams. It’s science.

  46. If the Cowboys win, they’re a good team. The Vikings can’t win against good teams.
    —————–

    Looks like the Cowboys and Vikings have something in common. The game should be a toss up between the two.

  47. I don’t care if the Defense gives up 1,000 yards. Points are all that matter and 24 was not enough for the Cowboys to win.

    Look at Cousins, he consistently has great looking stats as far as yardage goes, but can he win when it matters? No.

    Our D gave up big yardage, but got turnovers and made stops when it mattered. The fact it took them 563 yards to get to 24 points says it all.

    563 yards of garbage. 34-24 are the only numbers that matter.

  48. Good game, Aaron Jones look good again. Good road win, the points & yds the Cowboys got at the end was garbage time when GB let off the gas to avoid injuries.

  49. Goff and Dak suck. Happy about jones getting hit because he talks? Then What does Zeke deserve for eating and doing that dumb first down signal when he’s down 17?

  50. Jaire Alexander proving once again he’s all talk. And is there a CB in the league that gets away with more holding and illegal contact than Kevin King? The kid’s got his hands all over WRs, and never gets called.

    Aaron Jones was a monster today, I thought that Dallas D was supposed to be strong? Jones ate Vander Esch and that Dallas Dline for lunch

  51. Business trip. Brought home another *W*. Mission accomplished.👍

    Aaron didn’t put up huge numbers on the stats sheet, but I thought Aaron played his best game of the season so far. After the game when asked Aaron said: “I’ve accomplished a lot statistically in this league and I just want to win now.”

    The defense was hurt in the second half by losing Savage and other guys like Z going in and out with injuries. The D gutted it out and did enough to win.

    Time to try and heal some guys up. Next week it is probable to also get Davante back and that will obviously make a well rounded offense even better.

    Detroit is the focus now. Big division game and a chance to take a commanding lead in the division.

    NFC North Current Standings:

    Green Bay 4-1 Div 2-0

    Detroit 2-1-1 Div 0-0

    Chicago 3-2 Div 1-1

    Minnesota 3-2 Div 0-2

    #GoPackGo!🏈

  52. There are a lot of trolls still hating and still picking fights. One word:

    Scoreboard.

  53. The good thing is; the Packer offense is still trying to find itself and is starting to come around. The same can be said of the defense. Consider the first half of the season on-the-job-training, when you take all the major changes into account. So far, so good. This team is starting to make me feel a lot more confident, which much improvement still available. Are they the best? No. Can they beat a very good (hot) team, on the road, in prime time? You already know the answer.

  54. sityourselfdown says:

    So can I roast Rodgers for throwing 0 TDs.
    ###

    Rodgers is a game manager now. TD’s for him are limited to just over 1 per game it seems.

    Meanwhile, legendary passing QB’s like Winston (11), Brisset (11), Minshew (9), Dalton (7), Keenum (7), Rudolph (7), Bridgewater (6), Carr (6) and Flacco (6) have just as many or more than Rodgers. Mind you that Minshew, Keenum, Rudolph and Bridgewater have not played 5 complete games like Rodgers has.

    It’s a good thing that Aaron Jones decided to play football today. He was the leading receiver for the Packers as well as the leading rusher. Without Jones, the Packers lose the game, even with the 3 Dak INT’s.

  55. cellarperformance says…

    Viking fans would still take Rodgers for Cousins, today, right now, as-is.
    ###

    No, we wouldn’t.

    We want a QB with a future, not a past.

    On the contrary, I hope Aikman and that insipid wretch Buck do nothing but Cowboy games and they’re kept away from Thursday night games. Joe Buck is not his Father. Jack was a gift, Joe is a punishment.

    ++++++

    But instead you have Kirk Cousins. Perhaps you should let Spielman know what you want so he won’t keep providing you the Bradfords, Keenums and Cousins while he plays chess poorly.

  58. Where are all of the the loudmouth Cowboy fans today? I told you last week (and before) that the power rankings were wrong and you guys were WAY overrated. Now look, Eagles win again, and the Cowboys lose to the 2nd real team that they have played. Great game by the Packers! If they didn’t take their foot off the gas the Cowboys would have looked like the Jets did yesterday. I don’t expect to hear back until the Cowboys win again (which may be a while), so until then – enjoy mediocrity.

  59. Lot of hate on the Cowboys, but it was not like the Pack did much, it was all Aaron Jones.

    GB let up over 500 yards AGAIN on defense and still got bailed out by the other team.

  60. GB represented the Black & Blue (best NFL division) well with a good road win. ‘America’s team’ and Elliot with his ridiculous half-shirt had to walk away with a another loss.

  61. Is dak going to say the loss is good for them every time they lose? All their fans are going to be pounding their chest again next week when they beat the jets & then the eagles will come to jerry world to get some revenge, thus putting the fraudulent fanbase back in their place 🙂

  62. The Cowboys are a joke! They really thought they were that good after beating the pushover teams!!Wasn’t for the Zebras wouldn’t even been close
