Prescott throws 3 TD passes, Cowboys beat Packers 30-16

Tony Romo, who has been out since late August after suffering a back injury, is expected to return to the lineup after the bye week.Prescott threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns, and the Cowboys forced four turnovers in a 30-16 win over the Packers on Sunday in Green Bay, Wis.Team owner Jerry Jones has realized that as long as the Cowboys are winning, his best stance is to duck and dodge the Dak Prescott vs.In fact, people are starting to say that he should keep the starting job even after Tony Romo is healthy and ready to return. His fourth-quarter touchdown pass left fans of the Packers (3-2) stunned.At the same time, Green Bay made life hard on Prescott early with Julius Peppers’ strip-sack and Joe Thomas’ recovery halting Dallas’ third series and giving the ball back to the Packers’ offense. The Packers fell to 3-2, two games behind the unbeaten Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North. Dallas’ 30 points were a season high against Green Bay, and the Packers’ offense turned the ball over four times.”I don’t know if I agree with ‘broken.’ It’s definitely not clean in some areas”, coach Mike McCarthy said. “It’s not part of our fiber”.Outside of a team sack on a fumble and Peppers’ strip, Prescott was hit only one other time in the game en route to fashioning a 117.4 passer rating.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.But it was Linehan who orchestrated it all like the maestro that he is, starting with the opening script of the game that yielded a Cowboys score on the first drive for the fifth time time in six games. Brady, the? New England Patriots’ quarterback, opened his career with 162 passes without an interception, spanning the 2000 and 2001 seasons.The offensive play-calling by the Cowboys was formidable and timely as they gave receiver Lucky Whitehead a jet sweep on third-and-1 from the Cowboys’ 12-yard line to spur a five-play, 97-yard touchdown drive with a minute remaining before halftime and no timeouts.That said, it’s still embarrassing when you get caught in the act, and Sunday was no different. “Another one to start up”.Prescott was once again sensational, taking advantage of a weakened Packers secondary. Timing may have been off on a couple other throws.”I felt my movement was good tonight”, Rodgers said. “That was big for us at the end of the half knowing they’ve got the ball to start the second half having to take some momentum back early”.Suddenly, the Packers have to ask themselves if their run defense was indeed as good as advertised.The Cowboys rushed for 93 yards in the first half against the Packers, which was already a season high against Green Bay. Morris (one yard on two carries) was noticeably slower through the hole and unable to shed tacklers and make them miss the way Elliott had all game. This marks the 4th straight game that Elliot has been able to rush for 130 or more yards, which is an National Football League rookie record. RT Bryan Bulaga left late with a back injury. The reason for that is simple, as Prescott has been superb while leading the Cowboys to a 5-1 record heading into their bye week.
