These two teams never fail to disappoint, that for sure, as the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers put on yet another down-to-the wire barnburner.But in a painfully familiar finish, it was the visiting Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers who once again came away with the victory, winning 35-31 in front of a sold-out crowd of 93,329.Rodgers has been a frequent nemesis of the Cowboys in his career and he again played the part of villain in this one. He finished with 221 passing yards, completing 65.5 percent of his attempts, but threw three touchdowns and no interceptions for a 122.9 passer rating.And it was because of Rogers, of course, that the Cowboys couldn feel comfortable at halftime despite having a 21-12 advantage Who can forget the 2013 game at ATT Stadium when Dallas was up 26-3 at the break only to see Green Bay storm back for a 37-36 win? Or last year divisional round playoff loss when Rodgers set his team up for the game-winning field goal as time ran out Rod Smith Jersey. Painful memories indeed.Still, the first two quarters looked like the Cowboys of 2016 as they scored touchdowns on each of their first three drives all while grinding out the clock. That led to an 18:50 to 11:10 time of possession difference for Dallas when halftime came around.And leading that early charge washad 14 carries for 56 yards in the first two quarters against the Rams, but then just 29 yards on seven tries in the final two frames – the Cowboys continued to hand the ball to their star rusher.Elliott only had 31 yards off 16 carries up until that point, but then got the ball on four of the Cowboys’ next five plays, totaling 42 yards. The drive stalled at the Packers’ 25-yard line, but Dan Bailey was good on the 43-yard field goal to give Dallas back the lead, 24-22.Were the Cowboys back in the driver seat? It sure seemed that way when Green Bay went three-and-out and Dallas took over at its own 12-yard line. But on the second play of the possession, Prescott quick dart to Terrance Williams went right through the receiver hands and into the waiting arms of cornerback Damarious Randall, who promptly slid in untouched for the score.The Packers’ attempt at a two-point conversion failed, but they were back on top, 28-24.Again, the Cowboys turned to the running game. Starting at their own 21, seven of their 14 plays were rushes with Elliott carrying five times for 26 yards and Alfred Morris chipping in one 5-yard rush. That was mixed in with four short passes, none of which were for more than 6 yards, as Dallas methodically worked its way down the field.That set up a pivotal fourth-and-1 at the Packers’ 20-yard line, and sure enough, Elliott got the call and was able to extend the ball just far enough for the needed yardage. That gave the Cowboys a first down with two minutes left in the game.They only needed three more plays and 42 more seconds. With the Packers keying on Elliott, Prescott faked the handoff and kept it himself, scrambling around the left end and into the end zone for the 11-yard score, the Cowboys now up 31-28 with 1:13 left in the game.But as Cowboys fans know all too well, that was more than enough time for Rodgers. The future Hall of Famer drove his team 75 yards in nine plays, completing a pair of passes for 14 yards each and scrambling for another 18 yards.The final blow came with a perfectly placed pass to Adams over rookie Cowboys cornerback Jourdan Lewis in the back left side of the end zone with only 11 seconds left, the touchdown securing Green Bay the win, 35-31.Despite getting off to a slow start, Elliott finished with 116 yards rushing on 29 carries while Prescott went toe-to-toe with Rogers, completing 69.4 percent of his passes for 251 yards and a 105.2 passer rating. Jason Witten was the primary recipient of Prescott work, hauling in eight catches for 61 yards to lead the team.With that, the Cowboys head into their bye week saddled with a two-game losing streak and a 2-3 record. Theyl be back in action on Oct. 22 at San Francisco, the first of two straight road games.
