Packers Lose 30-16 To Cowboys

A unit that came into the game not only leading the National Football League in that department but was on a near-historic pace - only one team in National Football League history had given up fewer yards through four games than the 2016 Packers - left Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys bruised and beaten at Lambeau Field.

Prescott is starting for veteran Tony Romo, who injured his back in the preseason.

The Cowboys are now 5-1, having won five straight, with Prescott looking more and more comfortable as the starting quarterback.

When Romo is ready to play, which could be Week 8, after the Cowboys bye, the team will have to make a decision.

Asked whether he could say unequivocally who would start, Jones deflected, but noted that it wouldn't be hard to pull Prescott.

It's just that Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have rarely been on the receiving end of such a negative reaction from the devoted fandom at Lambeau Field. Insider Inbox????: - Green Bay Packers (@packers) October 17, 2016 Aaron Rodgers and the Packers do not seem to be the Super Bowl contenders that many thought they were entering the 2016 season.

The Packers are 3-2 to start the season, losing in Minnesota and at home to the Dallas Cowboys.

But McCarthy wouldn't say whether or not another true running back, such as practice-squad rookie Don Jackson, would be added by Thursday. "It's not part of our fiber". He also had two fumbles against the Packers yesterday afternoon, but fortunately the Aaron Rodgers led offense was unable to really capitalize on those turnovers. Even Rodgers, the two-time NFL MVP, wasn't immune from the jeering. Rodgers finished 31 of 42 for a season-high 294 yards.

When a reporter noted Sunday night that it was the first time Jones hadn't said that, Jones bristled and asked for words not to be put in his mouth.

For everyone's sake, it had better be the last time the fans are even given a reason to boo.

The Packers didn't score a touchdown until Rodgers and Cobb connected on a 6-yard touchdown pass with 6:53 left to get within 27-16.

That was an NFL rookie record, but he was eight attempts shy of breaking Brady's league mark for attempts to start a career. "Another one to start up". Those problems were evident last season too, despite the Packers going 10-6. I have comfort in the fact that every time Romo throws a football it's got more velocity on it. "We've got to get open and catch it consistently and throw it a little bit better". Normally that is great news for the organization, but after a 30-16 win over the Packers yesterday, Prescott is making head coach Jason Garret and owner Jerry Jones sweat.

Finding the best offensive packages and the right combinations of players is the next, or concurrent, step to regain the efficiency the Packers need. McCarthy didn't have an update on WR Davante Adams, who left in the third quarter Sunday to be evaluated for a concussion. Injuries to CBs Sam Shields and Quentin Rollins before the game and CB Damarious Randall during the game didn't help matters, leaving the Cowboys to take advantage of CB LaDarius Gunter for most of the game.

That's a departure from his statement after last week's 28-14 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals that "Tony is our No. 1 quarterback".
