Most people assumed the Green Bay Packers’ trip to Dallas to take on the Cowboys would be a much closer game than the one that ended up taking place on Sunday afternoon. But the Packers pretty much controlled it from the very get-go, relying on a strong running game from Aaron Jones. Before the first quarter was up, the running back- who ended the day with four touchdowns and 107 yards rushing- had two TD’s and the Packers were up 14-0 after the first period and then 17-0 at half time.
The Cowboys never had a realistic chance of coming, though they did pull the score back to 34-24 in the end. Across the state, the other Texas team was having more success as the Houston Texans throttled the poor Atlanta Falcons 53-32. The score looks worse than it really was, but the visitors were woeful, to be fair. DeShaun Watson had a gargantuan day, completing 28-33 of his passes and racking up five TD’s. The win moves them to 3-2, back in the mix, while the Falcons fell to 1-4.
