Cowboys Score 15 Unanswered Points To Tie Packers In Divisional-Round Game

by

Things were looking bleak for the No. 1 seed Dallas Cowboys on Sunday when they fell behind the Green Bay Packers 28-13 in their divisional-round matchup.

The Cowboys, however, cut the lead to eight when rookie quarterback Dak Prescott hit tight end Jason Witten for a 6-yard touchdown to open the fourth quarter. After the Dallas defense forced the Packers to go three-and-out, Prescott and Co. got the ball back with 9:14 to play.

Prescott engineered an 11-play drive that featured a heavy dose of fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott, including a ridiculous spin move on linebacker Clay Matthews.

After Elliott and the running game got the Cowboys into the red zone, Prescott found his favorite target Dez Bryant for a 7-yard scoring strike. The Cowboys then left it in the rookie’s hands on the two-point conversion to tie the game 28-28.

The Packers got the ball back with 4:08 remaining in the game, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers led them down the field for a game-winning field goal.

Still, it was an impressive comeback for Prescott in his first career playoff game.
