Green Bay Packers: Lacy and Starks off and running
By Doug Rogalla
The Packers get the ball back with 9:19 remaining in the first quarter and start marching down the field. 15 plays later, the Packers face 4th + 1 at the goal line. They try the sneak with Aaron Rodgers and fall inches short. Dallas takes over on downs. Packers eat up 8+ minutes of clock but come away empty.
Dallas starts their next drive inside the 1 yard line. McFadden is stuffed for no gain by Jayrone Elliott. On 2nd down, Cassel is able to get the ball out to Dez Bryant on the right side for a 9 yard gain. It is still early but the next play could also be termed a play of the game. First play of the 2nd quarter. 3rd and 1 from the DAL 10. Robert Turbin gets the ball and runs into a stone wall called Letroy Guion and held short. Dallas is the worst team in the NFL converting on 3rd + 1. Packers 0 – Cowboys 0.
