"That's stuff you can't coach", Rodgers continued, regarding the cut to the sideline that both moved the chains and preserved Green Bay's lone timeout on the final possession. He added 32 rushing yards on four carries.
Rodgers is the best player in the National Football League, and it's probably not close. At this point, the Packers were in Mason Crosby's range, meaning, at worst, they'd have a good shot at a field goal attempt that would tie the game at 31.
ARLINGTON - As the Cowboys were driving, down four, late in the fourth quarter Sunday, they faced fourth and 1 from the Green Bay 20. Rodgers also did that to Dallas in the divisional playoff nine months ago. There were five lead changes in the fourth quarter, the first on Jordy Nelson's 10-yard TD catch from Rodgers. "Our plan was to keep him in the pocket, and we let him get out. At different times in this ballgame we were able to do that, but on that particular play he got out".
Well, mostly ideal. If it had been without flaw, the touchdown would have come as time expired instead of leaving Rodgers with a minute and two seconds to work with.
The Cowboys jumped out to a 21-6 lead thanks to three touchdown passes by second-year quarterback Dak Prescott.
But the Packers have a secret weapon against the Cowboys - Aaron Rodgers. Instead, he was excited to give the ball to Rodgers.
"I missed him on the first one", Rodgers said. "I've got to expand my vocabulary".
Just like past year, the defense could not stop Aaron Rodgers, who stormed his way down the field for the last second game winning TD. But the Packers didn't need overtime because Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams won it with a 12-yard touchdown with 11 seconds to play.
The Cowboys are now 2-3 while the Packers are 4-1. In those situations, I just focus on my breathing to try and calm myself and remind the guys about some little things. "You know he's going to take full control of the offense, take full control of the game". That included an 18-yard completion to seldom-used running back Rod Smith when Prescott escaped the pocket and made a strong throw on the run.
Elliott kept pounding away in the fourth quarter, and his success opened up the read-option fake for Prescott (25-of-36, 251 yards, three TDs, one INT, 105.2 rating) to score.
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.
