Aaron Rodgers: Davante Adams wanted ball on game-winning TD

The NFL schedule in Week 5 will see Aaron Rodgers and Dak Prescott face off

It would've been way too easy to go with the Cowboys defense this week for the bad, but I think they actually did enough to win this game.

Aaron Jones, Packers, had 19 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown.

Dallas Cowboys fans have always been a fickle bunch, but they took it to new levels on Sunday.

Cowboys center Travis Frederick alertly knocked the ball out of Perry's hands and began running with it, but when he tried to lateral the ball hit the ground and the Packers recovered, finally ending the game.

Dak Prescott had given the Cowboys the lead with an 11-yard run with 1:13 remaining, capping a 17-play drive that lasted nearly nine minutes.

I've seen and heard plenty of analysts already dubbing Prescott's season as a "sophomore slump" even though I believe the quarterback is the only reason the team has won two games.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the truth, one of the best to ever play. Rodgers and Adams hooked up for a 12-yard touchdown, giving the Packers a dramatic 35-31 win in Dallas.

ARLINGTON, TX - OCTOBER 08: Davante Adams #17 of the Green Bay Packers pulls in the game winning touchdown against Jourdan Lewis #27 of the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth quarter at AT&T Stadium on October 8, 2017 in Arlington, Texas. In the first five weeks of the year, Zeke is averaging less that four yards per carry.

The Rams embark on a hard road trip to the first place Jaguars, who play the same style of aggressive, thieving "D" Los Angeles struggled against at home Sunday.

Perry would have been the scapegoat for a Packers loss, because he had the ball and just had to kneel down to win the game, and instead he just stood there. Adams went right back into the huddle and told Rodgers to run the same play.

Elliott only had 31 yards off 16 carries up until that point, but then got the ball on four of the Cowboys' next five plays, totaling 42 yards.

"Aaron Rodgers on the two-minute drill".

But unlike last week, when Dallas almost abandoned its run game in the second half - Ezekiel Elliott had 14 carries for 56 yards in the first two quarters against the Rams, but then just 29 yards on seven tries in the final two frames - the Cowboys continued to hand the ball to their star rusher.

From there, with a touchdown possible and a field goal as a fall-back option, the Packers kept going. With the score 21-12 at the break, Dallas was in good shape...until they weren't. But they had little impact on the game or Rodgers. He finished the afternoon with 221 passing yards, and 40 came on the game-clinching series. The one after? The game-winner. He began with 14-yard completions to Adams and to tight end Martellus Bennett. Hit Devante on a back shoulder to start the whole drive. It was also the first 100-yard rushing game for the Packers this season.
