Packers WR Davante Adams has Saturday deadline for clearing concussion protocol

That was more than enough time for Rodgers. Here's a look at how the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35-31 in today's NFC showdown along with a standings update and whats next for each of these teams.

"It comes down to little things being executed perfectly", Rodgers said after the Packers' seventh win in eight games in the series. The Packers seem to come out on top more times than not.

Adams was on a stretcher 10 days a go, and now has two touchdowns against the Cowboys.

Maybe, defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli should've given Jourdan Lewis some help on Davante Adams' game-winning touchdown catch?

Prescott threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, an 11-yard option-play keeper that set up Rodgers's final drive.


In doing so, Rodgers' most recent heroics ripped the hearts out of 93,329 Cowboys fans, allowing the 4-1 Packers to overcome a second-quarter, 21-6 deficit and posting a dramatic 35-31 victory over Dallas. Taylor played extremely well and earned another opportunity to play against the Cowboys.

The Packers eliminated Dallas from the playoffs on this same field in January when Rodgers converted a key third-and-20 play in the closing seconds and kicker Mason Crosby nailed a 51-yard field goal as time expired. There were five lead changes in the fourth quarter, including the Packers going ahead 28-24 on Damarius Randall's 21-yard interception return for a TD.

For the second straight week, the Cowboys score 30 points, but still can't figure out a way to win. He replaced Ty Montgomery, out after breaking some ribs in the win over the Bears. Still, a low percentage pass was an odd play call in that situation, and Ezekiel Elliott had softened up the Green Bay defense, getting up to 116 yards on 29 carries. Rodgers lofts it up right into the hands of Davante Adams for the ten yard touchdown. The next play was the incomplete pass to Adams in the end zone.

"Obviously what you're trying to do (at the end of the game) is get stops on defense", Garrett said. "We gave him the ball on the last drive, not only does he get through the line, and make a nice run, but the kid runs out of bounds".

"It's a tough one", Prescott said. That ultimately sets up the winning pass, because he's playing high shoulder on the first play; I go back shoulder. The Cowboys had a one-game exemption since he was coming back from suspension. A catch by Beasley was ruled a first down and reversed, as was Elliott's fourth-down plunge when he was ruled short but replay showed the ball reaching Green Bay's 19-yard line.


Prescott accounted for four total touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers yesterday afternoon.

And he still had 11 seconds left.

His technique hasn't quite been as good as it was a season ago and he's just not playing with the confidence he showed previous year.

Back in January, he led Green Bay down the field for the winning field goal with less time on the clock than that.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday the wideout felt "great" as he recovered from the helmet-to-helmet hit, which led to his hospitalization.
