Aaron Rodgers Leads Packers To Win Over Cowboys In Dramatic Finale

A dropped ball wound up in Green Bay CB Demarious Randall's hands for a pick-six to put the Packers ahead, but the Cowboys answered with a long TD drive to put the ball in Aaron Rodgers' hands with just over a minute left. The Eagles haven't exactly been world beaters, with their last three wins coming over the 0-5 Giants, 1-4 Chargers and 2-3 Cardinals, but they've mostly taken care of business this year. "It was important plays at the most important times by those guys".

Ten days after being carted off the field against the Bears, Adams already had a touchdown against Dallas.

Off that Thursday night game in which he suffered a concussion, Adams was targeted 11 times and caught seven passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

Every time Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is given a game-winning-drive situation, there's nearly a collective eye-roll that ripples through social media. "I thought Dallas was aggressive with the two minutes of pressure, and the scramble play was big, and obviously the touchdown throw was outstanding". After Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott helped ignite the Cowboys offense during their rookie season, Dallas has been inconsistent on offense in 2017. Jones rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown in his first career National Football League start. He had 19 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown. Workhorse running back Ty Montgomery was ruled out with broken ribs, and second string Jamaal Williams had been battling injuries of his own.

At that point, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said he wasn't thinking about January's playoff win.

Leonard Fournette, Jaguars, ran for a career-high 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in Jacksonville's 30-9 rout of Pittsburgh. The next play was the incomplete pass to Adams in the end zone. Rodgers made the grab as Lewis turned too late.

Abenomics, snap elections in Japan
The main opposition Democratic Party has been suffering in the polls, with only eight percent of voters planning to vote for them. Mr Abe said: "I expect opposition criticism is going to focus on (the scandals), and it's going to be a very hard election".

The good news? They won't see Rodgers again in the regular season. Instead, he was excited to give the ball to Rodgers.

He was 25 of 36 for 251 yards and three first-half touchdowns, two to Cole Beasley and one to Dez Bryant, who joined Hall of Famer Bob Hayes as the only Dallas receivers with at least 70 TD grabs.

"You're frustrated", Prescott said.

This was back to back weeks where the Cowboys looked to have the game secured, but failed to do enough to come away with the victory in the end. Rodgers was able to step up in the pocket and flush to his left, managing to narrowly leaving both rushers in the dust as he scampered 18-yards for the first down.

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. His laser to set up the game-winning field goal in last year's NFC Divisional playoff game is seared into the brain of every die-hard Cowboys fan. Lewis broke up the first one; the second one was ideal.

From there, with a touchdown possible and a field goal as a fall-back option, the Packers kept going. Packers trailing 21-12 at the half.
