Lots of short stuff so far. The Cowboys are dropping lots of guys into coverage and taking away the downfield stuff.
Rodgers gave himself more a chance by staying in the middle. If he scrambles to the side it takes away half the field. Staying in the middle allowed him more options.
Because they're dropping into zone and they're daring the Packers to run on some of those plays. They know that Lacy isn't 100% and they're playing the odds.
It's just about down. It was a factor in the first quarter. It was in Dallas' eyes.
End of the first quarter, by the way.
Packers have a first down on the Cowboys 46.
Montgomery is the running back.
Nothing there at all for Montgomery. Loss of 2. Now back to 5 wides.
Rodgers is chewing out Jared Abbrederis after that incompletion.
He wanted him to run the route differently I guess.
Rodgers has all day and gets sacked, but somehow gets bailed out with a facemask penalty.
He's just got to get rid of that. Take your shot and go for it.
Not a very good call. Kind of a Detroit facemask before the Hail Mary.
You can blame Richard Rodgers if you want, but that was a cruddy throw. The guy was wide open. Throw it in his gut.
This is going to be short of the first down. The offense looking out of sorts again. Plenty of time to throw.
Part of the problem is that they should be running the ball against these looks. They've got to figure out a way to get a consistent running game because the Cowboys are daring them to run.
Crosby from 43 yards is goo.
10 plays, 45 yards, 4:08.
Sometimes he does, but not today. He's got no one to run it.
Could be. Could be mechanics too. Not setting up, not using good footwork.
Cowboys are dropping seven deep in the secondary and rushing just four. It's seven against four. That's not a good match-up.
