Dak delivers: Prescott shakes off turnovers, throws 3 TDs

Oct 19, 2016, 01:12

Rodgers finished 31 of 42 for a season-high 294 yards.

There was plenty of frustration in the Packers' locker room but few answers offered to explain the broken offense.

But McCarthy wouldn't say whether or not another true running back, such as practice-squad rookie Don Jackson, would be added by Thursday.

Rodgers' next chance to turn things around comes Thursday night at Lambeau Field against the Bears. "I'm my biggest critic, and I look at this as finely as I look at every other game and improve". Timing may have been off on a couple other throws.

The Packers in all, fumbled five times and lost three of them.

The turnovers especially hurt. He also had two receptions for 17 yards, but it was his dominance in the running game that punished the Packers defense.

Prescott threw the first interception of his career after he was picked off on third and 8 from the Dallas 6, throwing out of his end zone with 20 seconds left in third quarter.

"When Bill Belichick chose to stick with Tom Brady at quarterback, Drew Bledsoe had to come in the AFC championship game against Pittsburgh to help win that big game". If Eddie Lacy can return to 100%, the Packers rushing attack should be consistent enough to take some of the pressure off of Rodgers, allowing the offense to run more play-action plays and alleviate the arm of Aaron Rodgers.

"That's what we'll figure out here watching this film", Rodgers said. At least in my lifetime, this as good as the Cowboy have ever been, and for the first time in a long while the Cowboys are actually relevant.

There are some positives on which to build. Rodgers was sacked just once. He threw just under 400 yards and had three touchdowns as well.

"I have to admit, Dallas or not Dallas, I think we can all agree the kid's playing outstanding and I told him that", Favre said. "I can't really give you a timeline but they feel it's something quick, so it'll definitely be on the front end of whatever the prognosis is". They know what we're going to do.

"Dr. (Pat) McKenzie felt very good about the surgery", McCarthy said. We all understand that, and we'll continue to work.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett hugs quarterback Dak Prescott after an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, in Green Bay, Wis.

Prescott led a seven-play, 75-yard drive ending with a 4-yard touchdown to Cole Beasley for an 18-point lead with 10:26 left. Safety Chris Banjo is still out as well, and second year players Damarioius Randall and Quinten Rollins are both dealing with groin injuries.

Prescott finally threw his first interception in the National Football League, ending his record-setting pass completions without an INT for a rookie QB.

Speaking of Tom Brady, he once again showed us what we were all missing as he was out for his four-game suspension to start the season.

"Until we get going, the goal is to get him ready for practice today, and then we'll take it from there", McCarthy said of Davis. "Another one to start up".

Romo's support all along has emanated from the one person who matters most in Cowboys land: owner Jerry Jones.

The Packers running back entered Week 6 with the ankle injury, and was listed as questionable.

Two of the interceptions and five of the sacks came over the last two weeks, with one of each generated against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Injury notes: Packers WR Davante Adams left in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. "I have great confidence we'll perform at the level we have the last 10½ years".
