Aaron Rodgers Does it Again in Dallas

All-Pro receiver Jordy Nelson added another touchdown to his resume, despite not being targeted in the first half and was not present on the game winning drive.

But what defines Rodgers' brand of greatness is his ability to make those comebacks seem routine. I hit Davante on a back shoulder to start the whole drive. He ripped off 14 more on the next play with an athletic catch and run by Martellus Bennett. He completed 19-of-29 passes for 221 yards with three touchdowns, including the game-winner with 11 seconds left.

They only needed three more plays and 42 more seconds.

Rodgers got flushed from the pocket on a third and eight, but beat two pursuing defenders to the edge. It seemed nearly academic after that. Rodgers helped his team rally from a 21-6 deficit for an unbelievable 35-31 win thanks to a nine-play, 75-yard drive that culminated with a 12-yard TD pass with 11 seconds to play. They've got a lot of young players on the defensive side of the ball.

Kentrell Brice and Quinten Rollins also deserve credit for the way they stepped up in an injury-ravaged secondary that lost Kevin King (concussion) and Brice and Davon House (cramps) for chunks of the game. Prescott opened the drive, which started at the Dallas 21-yard line, hitting Dez Bryant for a nine-yard gain.

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. Green Bay rallied from 15 points down in the first half after letting a 21-3 lead get away in last season's playoff win. Elliott rushed for 116 yards and the Cowboys scored more than 30 points for the second consecutive week but it wasn't enough. Apart from one bad whiff which led to a sack, Taylor stood his ground and was an integral part of the Packers win in Dallas. What was insane about this particular play was how close it came to working - thanks in part to multiple players on the Packers seeming to think the game had ended while the play was still going on.

On second down from the Packers 11 with 1:24 left, if the Cowboys would have run the ball instead of throwing an incompletion, they could have at the very least forced Green Bay to use a valuable timeout. He made it too, hauling in a twisting and leaping 12-yard grab that gave the Packers an NFC North leading 4-1 record.

This was another terrific game, although with the stakes not almost as high as the one in January.

The Cowboys and Eagles don't meet until Week 11.

The Green and Gold came into the game with not only the best red-zone offense in the league, but with the best red-zone offense they have had through week four this century.

The Raiders host the Chargers and Chiefs the next two weeks, during which time they'll wait on Derek Carr (back) but wonder how else they can get their mojo back.
