They are not a good short yardage team, no question. I still don't get why they don't use Lacy more on those plays, but I guess I understand why not today. They were limited in who they could use to run the ball.
But the guy can't leap or drive like he normally can because of a bad ankle. That's the main reason. Plus, he's probably at more risk to get hurt.
OK, Capers is going back to his usual first-down defense. Now it's 3-4 with Datone Jones as the end opposite Daniels.
That's a really good question. I will try to find out what I can about that. Like it really hurts them to release that info.
Capers is much better off playing it straight and bringing Burnett up as an extra defender in the box.
Packers go nickel and Matthews gets a little bit of pressure on Prescott.
Jones with some nice pressure off the right side causes Prescott to bail. The coverage was solid. That was a big stop.
It looks like he was using Matthews as a multi-purpose player, giving him the ability to play the run against Elliott and possibly spy Prescott. All he really did was go 3-4 but move Matthews to the middle and Peppers in to replace him. He also took out one other ILB and went with three safeties. That part I'm not sure about.
Lacy is back in the game. He's in the huddle now.
Spread out the Cowboys and make their secondary defend the pass.
Nelson not able to hold onto the ball again. Second week in a row that's happened to him. That's a completion as far as I can tell.
Nelson had two passes last week that were knocked out of his arms. Very unusual for him.
Cowboys take over on the 36.
Very nice job of Prescott stepping up and beating the rush. Went right to the open area.
Cowboys take a timeout, their second already.
I don't think he's no-name anymore. The guy is 4-1 and hasn't thrown an interception this year.
I don't think the looks have anything to do with it. I think the Cowboys are playing better than them. They're not doing anything that complicated. They're keeping Prescott clean in the pocket more than anything.
The Cowboys offensive line is giving Prescott plenty of time to throw.
Very good job of Perry playing contain on that last run. He forced the run up the middle and did not give up the edge.
Nice blitz call by Capers, sends Hyde in on the blitz and Peppers gets right around the corner for the deflection.
With Hyde blitzing, Pepper got a one-on-one and was able to force the fumble. Joe Thomas is Johnny on the spot with the recovery.
