2nd Quarter

The Packers defense forced a quick three and out, and with great field position, the Packers were able to march down and put up the first points of the game. The score came on a 13 yard connection from Rodgers to Starks who came streaking out of the back field on a quick pass to the flat. He was able to turn the corner and walk in with ease on a play that may not get called had McCarthy not taken over the play calling duties.

Again, the Packers defense was able hold off the Cowboys and get off the field quick. The Packers took the ball and marched right down to the three yard line. Then the Rodgers to Rodgers connection returned yet again. Not a 61 yard bomb like last week, but nonetheless, tight end Richard Rodgers was able to pull in his seventh touchdown of the year, and his fifth in the last six weeks.

The Packers went into half up 14-0 with the offense and defense both showing it can play the type of football Packers fans expect.
