Dallas Cowboys 28-Green Bay Packers 31, Packers win in overtime, summary: score, stats, highlights | NFL Week 10
Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers
Packers beat Cowboys in overtime
The Packers proved tonight why they still can't be underestimated. After five humiliating losses in a row, including to the Lions last week, the Packers got a much-needed win against the Dallas Cowboys in overtime. They overcame a 14-point deficit in the 4th quarter to come back and win.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys drop to 6-3 and third place in the NFC East.
Rodgers found his go-to guy
Much of the problem for the Packers this season has been on the offense. Aaron Rodgers has seemed frustrated to not have the go-to guy he had in Davante Adams. But it looks like he may have finally found him tonight in rookie wide receiver Christian Watson.
Of the four touchdowns the Packers scored, three were scored by Watson. They got off to a rocky start with two dropped passes to begin the game. But once they found their rhythm, there was no stopping them.
Watson's first touchdown came on a 58-yard run to tie the game 7-7 in the 2nd quarter. His second was on a 39-yard run to put the Packers just one score behind, 28-21 in the 4th quarter. And his third tied up the game 28-28 and helped lead the Packers into overtime and their eventual win.
McCarthy's return ruined
It was Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy's first return to Lambeau Field since being fired by the Packers four years ago. Though he received a warm welcome to start the game, losing in overtime after a fourth-quarter comeback is a little less warm.
Rudy Ford's interceptions
The Packers signed safety Rudy Ford in August and he finally made a name for himself. He had two interceptions in the first half, both of which resulted in Green Bay touchdowns.
Packers - Rodgers finished 14-of-20 for 224 yards and three touchdowns. Watson had four catches for 107 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Aaron Jones rushed 24 times for 138 yards and scored the other touchdown. Running back A.J. Dillon accounted for 13 carries and 65 yards. Wide receiver Allen Lazard had three catches for 45 yards and receiver Sammy Watkins had three receptions for 47 yards.
Cowboys - Quarterback Dak Prescott finished 27-of-46 for 265 yards and three touchdowns and two interceptions. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb had 11 catches for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Tight end Dalton Schultz had six catches for 54 yards and a touchdown, and running back Tony Pollard had 22 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown.
The game ended with kicker Mason Crosby's 28-yard field goal with 3:06 left in overtime.

Cowboys to finally get win over Packers?
The Cowboys have a rough history against the Packers. They have lost eight of their last ten games, including two playoff games in 2014 and 2016.
But this year is different. The Packers are going against Dallas under .500 for the first time since 2004. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 6-2 and highly favorited to win the game. Despite that, the Packers and Cowboys have a rivalry now and the Packers are going to be in it to win it today, so the Cowboys can't relax or treat this like an easy win.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will need to prove he can perform and make passes against a solid defense. Since he's been back, he's had pretty easy matchups, and against the Bucs' D in Week 1, he threw for just 134 yards and an interception but no touchdowns. Today, he has something to prove.
It's also the first time we'll see an Aaron Rodgers-Micah Parsons matchup. Parsons described Rodgers as an idol and then said he can't wait to sack him. The Dallas defense will have to work on stopping the run against Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon. They have allowed over 100 rushing yards in six of their last eight games and the Packers have rushed for over 100 yards five times in the last nine games. They've rushed over 200 yards twice. So Dallas has to stop the run if they want to buck the trend of Packers wins.
Cowboys/Packers Injury Report: Zeke out
The Packers are riddled with injuries heading into the game against Dallas today. The Cowboys are in good shape but will be without one of their key players.
Green Bay Packers Injury Report
The Packers will be without wide receiver Romeo Doubs after he left with an ankle injury last week. They'll also be out two offensive linemen, Rasheed Walker and Luke Tenuta.
It gets worse on the defensive side. The Packers will be without LB Da'Vondre Campbell, CB Shemar Jean-Charles, LB Krys Barnes, and DL Jonathan Ford.
Dallas Cowboys Injury Report
The Cowboys will be without their lead running back Ezekiel Elliott for the second week in a row after he hyperextended his knee in Week 7. Tony Pollard will take over as the lead back again. He scored two touchdowns in the Cowboys 49-29 win over the Bears in Week 8.
Dallas will also be without LB Anthony Barr, who is still recovering from a hamstring ijnury.
The other inactives listed for the Cowboys are backup QB Will Grier, LB Jabril Cox, S Markquese Bell, CB Nahshon Wright, and DL Chauncey Golston.
McCarthy back in Green Bay
Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy also happens to be the Green Bay Packers' former head coach. He led them to six NFC North titles and one Super Bowl victory.
"I'm four years removed from working there, and I'm really looking forward to taking our team up there," McCarthy said. "Like I told them today in the team meeting, this is a really cool place to compete."
Packers making moves ahead of Cowboys game
On Saturday, the Packers made some moves, including elevating outside linebacker La'Darius Hamilton and kicker Ramiz Ahmed from their practice squad.
The Packers o-line has been problematic since the season started. Now that Rashan Gary is on IR, the Packers had limited options. They chose to elevate Hamilton, who didn't do much last time he played against the Commanders. They needed someone though, so Hamilton it is.
But why did they elevate Ahmed? Veteran kicker Mason Crosby was limited in practice this week with a sore back. Though he will still play in today's game, Ahmed is going to be responsible for the kickoffs.
Lambeau Field is about to look different
Lambeau Field in Green Bay is one of the hardest stadiums to play in. Due to the low temps and often snow, away teams struggle. Plus, there's always loud cheese heads at every sold-out game.
Cowboys and Packers: Where they stand
The Green Bay Packers have had a rough go this season. Aaron Rodgers looks tired and frustrated with his offensive line and lack of a go-to target without Davante Adams.
The Packers are currently sitting at 3-6 after losing their fifth straight game to the Detroit Lions last week. In that game, Rodgers threw three interceptions, including two in the red zone.
The Dallas Cowboys have their starting quarterback back in action in Dak Prescott and since he's found his groove, they haven't lost a game. In fact, their only loss since Week 1 to Tampa Bay was to the undefeated Eagles with Cooper Rush in at quarterbak.
The 'Boys had a bye week last week, but beat the Chicago Bears 49-29 in Week 8. The Dallas defense has so far held opponents to 20 points or fewer six times. Their defense is No. 3 in the league and is going to be a problem for Green Bay's offense, even in their own territory.
