Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones steps up in replacement of Ty Montgomery

Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones steps up in replacement of Ty Montgomery”

Rodgers led his team to a touchdown with just 58 seconds remaining in the first half, running back Aaron Jones darting up the middle from 7 yards out. In that game, Rodgers' long completion to Jared Cook on third-and-20 in the final seconds set up Mason Crosby's winning field goal as time expired in a 34-31 win. Aaron Jones rushed for 125 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while Davante Adams had seven catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns in the big win.

Game Preview: The Cowboys are out for revenge after the Packers knocked them out of last year's playoffs.

Here's what you need to know about today's Packers-Cowboys game.

Dak Prescott had given the Cowboys the lead with an 11-yard run with 1:13 remaining, capping a 17-play drive that lasted nearly nine minutes.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the truth, one of the best to ever play. Aaron Rodgers found Davante Adams for a 12-yard touchdown with 11 seconds left to defeat the Cowboys 35-31.

On second down from the Packers 11 with 1:24 left, if the Cowboys would have run the ball instead of throwing an incompletion, they could have at the very least forced Green Bay to use a valuable timeout.

The Cowboys were supposed to push that setback aside this season and, in Year 2 in the National Football League for quarterback Dak Prescott and tailback Ezekiel Elliott, take the next step from contender to Super Bowl team. After an impressive half last week against the Chicago Bears, Jones reportedly got most of the first team reps in practice throughout the week. The Eagles haven't exactly been world beaters, with their last three wins coming over the 0-5 Giants, 1-4 Chargers and 2-3 Cardinals, but they've mostly taken care of business this year. Adams went right back into the huddle and told Rodgers to run the same play. Rodgers converted a third-and-8 play from the Dallas 30 by scrambling for an 18-yard gain to the 12 to set up the final sequence.

Rodgers was sacked four times, but he didn't let that pressure derail his offense, even with Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari still injured and sitting out.

Back in January, he led Green Bay down the field for the winning field goal with less time on the clock than that. That call was the one mistake Dallas made on an otherwise ideal drive.

He led three game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime during the 2016 season. He's also missed two games with the injury. Their one loss was at Kansas City, though they were tied at the halfway point of the fourth quarter, and within a score until the final two minutes of the game. After an incompletion to Adams working against rookie Jourdan Lewis, Rodgers went there again.

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