Cowboys' Jerry Jones irked by 'little darling' ref's flag on Jason Garrett

"We had already challenged a potential pass interference earlier [and] you know in that situation you have to use the flag to get the call corrected and you're not going to have one for later in the game", Garrett said after the game.

Common sense said there would be rough patches for the first month or so of the season as LaFleur acclimated to his players, and they acclimated to his scheme. It largely signaled the day that was to come for the Cowboys. Aaron Jones (195 yards, 4 TDs, 59 carries) is the Packers' top RB; Ezekiel Elliott (324 yards, 3 TDs, 73 carries) is the driving force behind the Cowboys' ground attack.

The Green Bay Packers ran them out of the building for much of the game, and while they made it close, they still lost.

Jones had a career-high 182 scrimmage yards - 107 rushing and 75 receiving - and opened the scoring with an 18-yard run after being held to 19 and 21 yards rushing the previous two weeks. It was a hit made George Teague proud.

Aaron Jones rushed for four touchdowns, Mike Pettine's defense delivered three interceptions of Dak Prescott and the Green Bay Packers escaped AT&T Stadium with a 34-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Way too many big plays given up by the Green Bay Packers' defense. The number also ties the franchise record for most in a game. Special teams tends to be an attitude for the teams that do it very well. Dallas weathered a stretch of five turnovers in nine possessions, going back to last week against the Saints.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers battle the Dallas Cowboys in Week 5, a matchup of division leaders. Prescott, who had never lost when throwing for more than 275 yards, was 27 of 44.

There were many errors made in this game by the Cowboys, but arguably none bigger than the aforementioned first-drive interception that was created by a Cooper drop.

Half of Rodgers' passes went to running backs. Both Cameron Fleming and La'el Collins had tough games. He held up surprisingly well when pressed into action.What will likely be the most freakish sequence and turn of fortunates of the 2019 Cowboys season started as the third quarter ended.

En route to his third touchdown - a 5-yard scamper in the third quarter - Jones delivered a less-than-respectful message indicative of the play and the flow of the game. Dallas won the challenge, but netted only 12 yards on the play after factoring in the penalty.

However, the Green Bay Packers defense overall has been much improved this year and that will be put to the test against this Cowboys team that, outside of the loss to New Orleans, has been highly impressive this year.

Prescott and company will have a chance to prove themselves against the Packers in this one. The Packers continue to lead the NFC North at 4-1 and return home for the next two games, the first of which is next Monday night against the Detroit Lions.
