Aaron Rodgers got Dak Prescott once again.
The Cowboys looked near flawless in amassing a 21-6 lead early in the first half. Dak Prescott was on fire. He threw three touchdown passes and was making plays left and right. There was no answer for him. He finished 25 of 36 for 3 TD’s, an interception and 251 yards. He ran for another 37 yards on 4 rushes and scored what should have been the game-winning touchdown. There was 1:13 left on the clock.
Then it became apparent that Rod Marinelli once again had no answer for Aaron Rodgers; Rodgers is now 14-2 against Rod Marinelli defenses in his career.
To the Cowboys credit, they seemed to know this. They knew that they had to try to grind this game out and leave Rodgers with little to no time left. They turned the game over to Zeke Elliott and he responded with some huge rungs. He had 29 big carries for 116 yards.
This was probably the game of the season; it just sucks that heading into a bye week that the Cowboys were handed such a crushing defeat and are now 3-2 on the season without much of a signature win to speak of.
