If I told you Davante Adams was out of the lineup with an injury, Aaron Rodgers wouldn't throw a touchdown pass and the Dallas Cowboys would pile up 563 yards of offense, there'd be no way the Green Bay Packers would leave Texas with a victory, right?


Wrong.


With a stirring performance, the Packers beat another 2018 Division champion on the road, staying perfect at AT&T Stadium with a 34-24 victory,


In need of a playmaker, the Packers found one in running back Aaron Jones who did something no one ever has against a Dallas defense, rush for four touchdowns in a single game.   Jones scored from 18 yards and three yards out in the first quarter, he had a five yarder in the third and finished with a one yard stretch that stretched the Packers lead to 31-3. The former Texas-El Paso star finished with 107 yards on 19 carries and he also was the leading receiver with 7 catches for 75 more.   Jones had family and friends in the stands and even tossed a scoring ball to his brother after what he called "a dream come true" game.


The other Aaron, MVP quarterback Rodgers, passed for 238 yards, endured three sacks and did not fire a touchdown pass, but he also didn't make any mistakes, saying he thought it was his best game of the season


His counterpart, Dak Prescott, did make mistakes, three interceptions that spoiled a career best 463 yards passing and a lightning strike comeback attempt.


The Cowboys put up 21 points on drives that lasted 1:30, 1:27 and just 21 seconds on two plays covering 75 yards that closed the gap to the final 10 point margin. A 38 yard pass to Michael Gallup, a 2 yard Ezekiel Elliott touchdown and then a 53 yard bomb to Amari Cooper made for a tighter than desired finish.   Cooper had a monster game, 11 receptions for 226 yards, most coming against brash Jaire Alexander,


It was the second year pro who got the first laugh however, intercepting a Prescott pass that glanced off Cooper's back stretching hand in the first quarter.   Chandon Sullivan made a leaping interception in the second and Kevin King picked off a ball in the final period to set up Mason Crosby's second field goal in as many tries giving Green Bay a 34-17 advantage.


Crosby's counterpart, Brett Maher, missed from 54 yards out late in the second quarter as the Green Bay defense pitched a first half shutout.  He finally got Dallas on the board with a 36 yard kick in the third quarter, but missed a 33 yard attempt with 1:41 to play that could have pulled the Cowboys within 7 and with a chance for an onside kick miracle finish.


The first half defense stifled Elliott and harrassed Prescott,  the Smith's combining for three sacks on the day.  Elliott finished with 62 yards rushing and 29 receiving,  half as many total yards than Jones.


Dallas was able to hit big plays in the second half because the attrition rate was getting out of hand.  Darnell Savage left with an ankle injury, Za'Darius Smith had to be helped off the field three different times.  Reserves like Sullivan and Will Redmond were asked to log a lot of snaps.


Center Corey Linsley also left early with a concussion and Lucas Patrick finished at center.  He had an unusual day launching a pair of shotgun snaps into the hands of Jones, instead of Rodgers but the running back didn't mind the extra touches in Green Bay's first four rushing touchdown game since Dorsey Levens in January of 2002.


Rodgers is now 4-0 at Jerry Jones'  palace, the Super Bowl 45 victory over Pittsburgh and three straight against the Cowboys.


Next up for the 4-1 Pack, a Monday night date against the idle 2-1-1 Detroit Lions back at Lambeau Field.

I liked this line: Jones had family and friends in the stands and even tossed a scoring ball to his brother after what he called "a dream come true" game. I don't know how much they get fined for tossing a football into the stands but from his perspective it was worth it. I wonder if he actually got the ball to his brother or just in the area and someone had to pass it along.

In 2015, the fine was $5,787 for first offense.

That makes it cooler that it was to a family member (assuming it got there safety).
I wonder if he might be able to get out of the fine (I doubt it). But the NFL seems to react more if the announcers mention it or point it out...

I still remember when the NFL was getting heavy with fines on STs... if the announcers mentioned a hard hit (even a legal one) the players seemed to get fine, where there were some illegal ones that the announcers didn't see or mentioned and there was no fine for some reason.

Yeah, when Hornung was throwing the ball into the stands in the 60's the NFL instituted a$100.00 fine.
I figured it had risen substantially since then.

Yeah, but remember Yoop, back then players only made a few thousand dollars a year. Not hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars!
$100 probably seemed like thousands to Hornung or any other player.
$100 today is pocket change to today’s players.

Now that I have time I checked. 1st offense $7017. 2nd $14,037.
If anyone is interested in the schedule for other fines the link is here.

The NFL sure seems to like fines that end in 7. Blink

By all appearances, the throw was on target:


Mike McCarthy Ted Thompson Aaron Rodgers Brett Favre

Does anybody know what the reason behind not throwing the ball in the stands is? I would sooner see a player throw a ball into the stands and someone gets a great souvenir than all the showboating.

Yeah it's because of the legal liability of fans fighting over that great souvenir...

Have you ever seen a great fumble that keeps bouncing around and sober professional athletes struggle to recover it?

Now image a number of groups of drunk (or drinking) men trying to recover a loose great souvenir that will be remember for years to come... there will be fighting in the stands, not only over the ball, but proceed disrespecting disappointment of not getting the ball... or being shoved out of the way of the ball.


And again, they make more money by selling beer 🍻 and they now make money by selling game balls... and again legal liability of those fans fighting for the ball.


So it's all about money 💰 (as it always is with the NFL, well that or power or PR, but usually money)

That’s where I liked Arena Football. If a ball went into the stands, the fan that got it got to keep it.
Back when Milwaukee had the Mustangs, a ball shot into the stands and I “recovered” it. After the game I got to go on the field, and had the Mustang players sign it.
Yes, it was just Arena Ball, but it was a lot of fun.

Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers list Aaron Rodgers as limited by knee injury

gbguy20 (10-Oct) : lots of things don't give up on their dream until forced to. the reward outweighs tge risk to a certain point in their ife
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : I think for me it would depend on what kind of civilian job I'd managed to secure in the interim. No use screwing up a good thing for a pie-in-the-sky shot at a dream.
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : If a team that had previously cut you brought you in for a workout, would you be open to signing with the practice squad?
KRK (9-Oct) : I would like to see either/or Pennel or Williams. Lancaster and Lowry have been disappointing IMO
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : PFF has Chandon Sullivan and Will Redmond with highest defensive grades
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : Something like that.
buckeyepackfan (9-Oct) : CM3 out till week 10 with broken jaw.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Packers worked out Packers: Rico Gathers, Mike Pennel, Sly Williams
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : A team, dunno. A room, very easily. They interviewed him. lol
beast (8-Oct) : But how well did the Packers know LaFleur's command of a team and room before hiring him? (We'll never know)
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : hhaha great stat
Mucky Tundra (8-Oct) : Christian McCaffrey has 866 yards from scrimmage. The New York Jets have 718
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : @RobDemovsky Most think he was hired for his offensive philosophies and schemes, but perhaps Matt LaFleur’s command of a team and room went underrated.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : seahawks +2 vs browns. Slam it while you can!
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : just a thought. he fumbled at the one yard line this weekend and now they traded for another wr. figure maybe they're switching him out.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Really? Raiders gonna cut Davis??
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : turns out this guy is just a tool
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : apparently, baker mayfield refused to shake hands with the 49ers during the coin toss. they made him pay for it all night.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : maybe the raiders are cutting tdavis after his fumble
KRK (8-Oct) : 49ers are frigging terrific. Both lines are awesome
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : I hope it was one damn sexy pic.
