Hometown kid Aaron Jones tramples his favorite team in first NFL start
DALLAS, Texas (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers, alongside UTEP all-time rusher Aaron Jones, and the Green Bay Packers did it to the Dallas Cowboys once again. The Packers pulled out a thrilling 35-31 victory over the Cowboys in Dallas on Rodgers' 12-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams with 11 seconds left. Rodgers needed just 62 seconds to engineer a 75-yard drive that left Green Bay 4-1.
The victory comes nine months after Rodgers' long completion to Jared Cook on third-and-20 set up Mason Crosby's winning field goal as time expired in a 34-31 win against Dallas.
Adams was playing for the first time since leaving the field on a stretcher following a helmet-to-helmet hit by Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan in Chicago 10 days earlier.
Dak Prescott had given the Cowboys the lead on an 11-yard touchdown run with 1:13 remaining, capping a 17-play drive that lasted almost nine minutes.
Aaron Jones became the first Green Bay running back with 100 yards in his first start as a rookie since Samkon Gado in 2005. Jones ran 19 times for 125 yards and a touchdown.
Ezekiel Elliott had 116 yards on 29 carries for the 2-3 Cowboys, who have matched their loss total of last season.
