It was not pretty site for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday as the Dallas Cowboys took it to the green and gold on both sides of the ball. On defense, the Packers struggled to control Cowboys rookie quarterback and running back combination of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
The cowboys racked up 424 total yards, with Elliott getting 157 yards rushing and Prescott throwing for three touchdowns.
The Cowboy’s performance even had the Lambeau faithful booing the defense. Something the Packers players don’t want to happen again.
“As a player, you don’t appreciate that. you don’t want to be booed, but at the same time they’re spoiled. You don’t want to disappoint, so that’s why I said that we have to come out here, do our job and to turn those boos into cheers.”
“They did an excellent job. you can’t take credit away from them but there’s a lot of things that we did poor and we have to improve on. it was totally unacceptable and inexcusable. there’s no way else to say it. we let them come in here and do what they wanted to do.”
The offensive side of the ball got a little boost today as the Packers traded for Kansas City back-up running back Knile Davis. The 4th year man out of Arkansas has rushed for over 700 yards and 11 touchdowns since entering the league in 2013…
Davis could see plenty of playing time Thursday night with Eddie Lacy being questionable and James Starks out due to knee surgery. The Packers could also use Davis in the return game when they host the Bears on the Thursday night football.
