Instant Analysis: Cowboys defense can't seal win against Packers

Elliott cranked out nearly a 100 yards in the fourth quarter alone, including a heady extension on a fourth-and-inches play on Dallas' final drive that initially appeared to be stuffed, if not for Ellliott's reaching past the 19-yard line. But he did inflict some considerable harm upon it.

On second down from the Packers 11 with 1:24 left, if the Cowboys would have run the ball instead of throwing an incompletion, they could have at the very least forced Green Bay to use a valuable timeout. "That's just the case".

Trailing 31-28 with 1:13 to play, Rodgers needed a field goal to tie, not win the game as he did last season.

Don't worry, Bryan. They'll be talking about this one for a while.

"It comes down to little things being executed perfectly", Rodgers said after the Packers' seventh win in eight games in the series. Your mind-set's a lot different.

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. The Packers won, 34-31, and advanced to the NFC title game.

To be fair, Green Bay's offensive line has been a revolving door over the years, but David Bakhtiari is one of the best the Packers' have had. The Cowboys are sitting at 2-2 for the season.

That was more than enough time for Rodgers. "Really, you take the emotion out from that standpoint".

RAVENS 30, RAIDERS 17: Joe Flacco hit Mike Wallace on two deep passes to spark Baltimore's struggling offense, and the Ravens (3-2) got a fumble return for a touchdown in a win at Oakland (2-3).

The Cardinals (2-3) were held to 279 yards. We'll stay together. This is a close team. That left Beasley to get into the act again. "That's the one turnover of the game".

The future Hall of Fame quarterback found a way once again to kill off a budding Cowboys season, this time working his way 75 yards downfield in just 62 seconds before Rodgers threw a dart to receiver Davante Adams over rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis for a 12-yard touchdown in the closing moments. 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.

Dallas was in control for most of their matchup with the Rams, before blowing a lead late in the game. This week the Packers overcame two missed extra points, as well as a missed opportunity on a fourth quarter try for a two-point conversion.

Prescott looked the part of Rodgers, scrambling to set up big completions and running 21 yards himself on one play to help the Cowboys build a 21-6 lead. But that left time on the clock for Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers on the two minute drill, I don't know what else to say him, I have to expand my vocabulary.

Packers: WR Jordy Nelson, who scored his sixth touchdown for the first Packers lead early in the fourth quarter, wasn't on the field during the final drive. The drive was capped off with a fade to Adams in the left side of the end zone to win the game.

Adams has 16 catches for 219 yards and two touchdowns in four games this season. "With his eyes, he said, 'Throw a better ball'". "He made a great catch".
