And that one guy once again, did in the Cowboys, throwing a dart of a touchdown pass to Devonte Adams with 11 seconds left in the game. Against the Cowboys on Sunday, he not only started for the first time, he looked like the best running back on the field by a lot. Little-known Aaron Jones rushed 19 times for 125 yards, averaging 6.6 yards per carry.

Dallas Cowboys fans have always been a fickle bunch, but they took it to new levels on Sunday.

Two years ago, the Cowboys lost to the Packers in a game that universally became known as The Catch.

The Cowboys jumped out to a 21-6 lead thanks to three touchdown passes by second-year quarterback Dak Prescott. Packers win 35-3. With a little over a minute left in the game, here's what was on Aaron Rodgers mind during that final drive.

After rallying back from a 15-point deficit - and with his team down 31-28 with just over a minute remaining in the game - Rodgers orchestrated a 75-yard scoring drive in 62 seconds that culminated in a beautifully-thrown touchdown to Davante Adams.

The Green Bay Packers are off to a hot start this National Football League season as they now move to 4-1 overall and 1-1 on the road. Ezekial Elliot tore up the Packers defense on the drive, and Green Bay bit on the play. Packers linebacker Nick Barnett picked up the ball, and at that point, nearly everyone in the stadium - including announcer Joe Buck - assumed the game was over. Rodgers went his way on first down only to have the pass broken up.

With the run, scrambling 18 yards to the Dallas 12-yard line. Just to add to Rodgers's degree of difficulty on this one, or maybe to give the Cowboys a fighting chance, Jordy Nelson was suddenly on the sidelines with an undisclosed injury. Ezekiel Elliott ran for over 100 yards for the second time this season, but failed to score a touchdown for the third time this year.

From there, with a touchdown possible and a field goal as a fall-back option, the Packers kept going.

He led three game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime during the 2016 season. But on the second play of the possession, Prescott's quick dart to Terrance Williams went right through the receiver's hands and into the waiting arms of cornerback Damarious Randall, who promptly slid in untouched for the score.

Dallas was in control for most of their matchup with the Rams, before blowing a lead late in the game. The drive was capped off with a fade to Adams in the left side of the end zone to win the game. There were more turnovers on the final play (three) than there were on all the other plays combined in the game (one).

"Aaron Rodgers in the two-minute drill, I just don't know what else to say about him", McCarthy said.

When asked about the first career start for the young back, his quarterback offered nothing but high praise.
