Multiple Dallas Cowboys Fans Caught Cheering After Packers Game-Winning Touchdown

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott escapes pressure at the line during an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Oct. 1 2017 in Arlington Texas

These two teams never fail to disappoint, that's for sure, as the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers put on yet another down-to-the wire barnburner. Just like their previous meeting in the division round of the playoffs back in January, it ends with Aaron Rodgers leading Green Bay to a thrilling win. Trevathan received a two-game suspension for the play, but it was later reduced to a one-game ban on appeal.

And it was because of Rogers, of course, that the Cowboys couldn't feel comfortable at halftime despite having a 21-12 advantage. With Ty Montgomery still hurt, we might have a new starter for a while in Green Bay.

The Cowboys dominated the first half, marching out to a 21-6 lead thanks to controlling the clock.

Wentz tossed three scoring passes in the first quarter - 59 yards to Torrey Smith, 11 yards to Zach Ertz and 15 yards to Trey Burton. 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.

How about rookie running back Aaron Jones, the third string running back last week, and his 125 yards on 19 carries and touchdown? The opening possession was then capped with Prescott finding Cole Beasley on the right side of the end zone for the seven points and an early lead.

A throw to Davante Adams came perilously close to being intercepted, setting up 2nd-and-10.

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.

Ezekial Elliot was maintained for the duration of the first half, carrying the ball 14 times for only 30-yards. Green Bay is 3-1 this season with wins over the Seahawks and Bengals.

The Cowboys were supposed to push that setback aside this season and, in Year 2 in the National Football League for quarterback Dak Prescott and tailback Ezekiel Elliott, take the next step from contender to Super Bowl team. The scrambling athleticism was there as Rodgers squirted loose for an 18-yard run to secure a critical third-down conversion and get his offense within striking distance. The Packers went for two, but Rodgers overshot Nelson and the Packers held a 28-24 lead.

Were the Cowboys back in the driver's seat?

Prescott passed for 251 yards and three touchdowns. He finished the afternoon with 221 passing yards, and 40 came on the game-clinching series. Usually, a dreary postgame narrative follows, one complete with replays of those shanked extra-point attempts that ultimately proved the difference in a loss.

Vinatieri made four field goals to move into second on the NFL's career list, one ahead of Gary Anderson (538). Packers linebacker Nick Perry picked up the ball and just stood there, and several other players were just standing around watching him.

The jeers started in the first quarter of the Dolphins' home debut, and soon the crowd was chanting for backup quarterback Matt Moore. Three plays later, it seemed that might be the best-case scenario.

But with a minute left in the game, the Cowboys left too much time on the clock for Aaron Rodgers. His passer rating was 122.9, and he led the Packers 75 yards in just 62 seconds to stun the Cowboys with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams with 11 seconds left. For the receivers, Jason Witten was Prescott's top target of the day with 61 yards and eight catches on 10 targets. "We knew how important it was for us to get this and go into the bye week 3-2".
