Aaron Jones arrived in a big way on Sunday in Dallas, but the offense still found ways to struggle on third downs, and the defense gave up a ton of yards.
Zachary Jacobson of Cheesehead TV offers some notes on a successful Sunday for the Packers.
26 touches and 182 scrimmage yards later, Aaron Jones put together the game of his life against the Cowboys. Jamaal Williams was out of the lineup with a concussion, so the Packers lacked the same dual-threat tandem they've sported in their backfield for three seasons now. But that didn't deter Jones from registering four rushing touchdowns, becoming the first running back to ever score that many against the Cowboys.... The Packers have been in way too many third-and-long situations that put them at an odds with converting. It was evidenced against the Cowboys after they finished the game 3-for-12 on third down... Amari Cooper had 226 yards on 11 catches and a touchdown against the Packers on Sunday, and a lot of that was in Jaire Alexander's coverage. Alexander landed his first interception of the season on a tipped ball that Cooper couldn't corral, but this is a game that goes beyond the realm of simple statisitcs. Flat out, the Packers' first-round pick from a year ago had a very, very rough day... Mason Crosby was forced to make a tackle on kickoff coverage and suffered an injury as a result. Crosby didn't miss a beat. He returned to the game after being helped off of the field with trainers, made two field goals before the end of the game and hit on all of his extra points.
