4th quarter

Aaron Rodgers has done it again. 

A third-down scramble for 21 yards set up a second Davante Adams touchdown of the afternoon to give Green Bay a 35-31 lead with 11 seconds to play.

Dak Prescott scrambled for an 11-yard touchdown with 1:13 to play to put Dallas up 31-28. Prescott's TD run came on a beautifully-executed play-action read, which opened up the left side.

A conversion on fourth-and-one with 2:10 to go kept the Cowboys' hopes alive. After what was ruled a first down was overturned on a third-down completion to Cole Beasley, Ezekiel Elliott first looked to be stuffed on fourth down. But another replay review showed Elliott extend the ball past the line to gain.

A Dak Prescott pass went through the hands of Terrance Williams and into the arms of Packers cornerback Damarious Randall, who returned it 21 yards for a touchdown to put Green Bay back on top, 28-24.

Dan Bailey, the most accurate kicker in NFL history, was good from 43 yards to put Dallas up by two with just under 12 minutes to play.

Here we go again. Green Bay took a 22-21 lead when Jordy Nelson caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers.

3rd quarter

A nine-play, 71-yard drive to start the half ended with a 22-yard field goal by Mason Crosby to bring Green Bay within six points. A pass breakup by Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens saved a Jordy Nelson touchdown before the field goal.

For the second straight week, the Cowboys were blanked in the third quarter after scoring three first-half touchdowns.

2nd quarter

Aaron Jones' second NFL touchdown made it a nine-point game just before the half. The Cowboys marched to midfield but a sack fumble brought the threat to an end before the break.

Dez Bryant's 10-yard touchdown grab capped off a 57-yard drive with just over six minutes left to play. To that point, Dallas had controlled the ball more than three times longer than Green Bay.

The Cowboys recorded two sacks on their second defensive possession, including one on 3rd-and-long by David Irving, back this week from a four-game PED suspension.

An unbelievable escape from pressure by Dak Prescott ended with an 18-yard completion to Rod Smith. One short Ezekiel Elliott run later, Prescott found Cole Beasley for the duo's second touchdown connection of the afternoon.

1st quarter

After the Cowboys scored a touchdown on their first drive of the game, the Packers responded with an eight-play, 75-yard drive of their own. Davante Adams, returning this week after being cleared from concussion protocol, hauled in a 10-yard Aaron Rodgers pass for the score. Mason Crosby missed the point-after try.

Dallas went 75 yards on 13 plays and got the benefit of a questionable personal foul penalty in the end zone on their way to their first opening-drive touchdown of the year. Dak Prescott found Cole Beasley for the short score on the first play after the penalty.

Earlier in the drive, Prescott hit Brice Butler for 49 yards on a 3rd and 13 play to keep the drive alive.
