No Davante? No problem. The Green Bay Packers (4-1, 2-0 NFC North) topped the Dallas Cowboys (3-2, 2-0 NFC East) 34-24 at Jerry’s World Sunday, in America’s Game of the Week. It was not the prettiest win, but the result itself was massive. The Packers sit atop their division undefeated and have still yet to lose a game on the road this season.
Going into this game, many thought it would be all about the Cowboys’ run game, but it was the Packers’ run game that really stole the show. Aaron Jones put on a clinic Sunday, with four rushing touchdowns and 107 rushing yards.
Even though the Packers were able to hold on and win by ten, late in the fourth quarter things were starting to get scary. At one point in the second half the Packers were winning 31-3. The fact that the Cowboys were able to bring it as close as they did could be an issue later in the season if guys continue to get banged up.
Up next, the Packers get a visit from NFC North rival, the Detroit Lions, at Lambeau Field for Monday night football.
