After the Green Bay Packers’ Week 5 win against the Dallas Cowboys, here are the top takeaways.
There’s something about AT&T Stadium. It has become a home away from home for the Green Bay Packers, who are a perfect 5-0 in that stadium. The Packers won a championship. Matt Flynn led a historic comeback. An all-time great catch from Jared Cook set up a game-winning kick by Mason Crosby in the playoffs.
And on Sunday, it was yet another winning performance at AT&T Stadium for the Packers. It was set up by the defense forcing three turnovers, and a career performance by Aaron Jones, who ran in four touchdowns. But we’ll get to that in a moment.
This was a huge win for the Packers. After four weeks, we didn’t exactly know just how good this team was. Yes, they had won three games, but they’d also fallen apart defensively against the Philadephia Eagles and had been inconsistent on offense all season.
But this was a statement victory against Dallas. And after five games, the Packers have the look of a team with an ascending offense that continues to improve. A defense that forces turnovers, makes sacks and big plays, even if they give up yards. And they an excellent punter and kicker.
Let’s look back at the Packers’ latest success against the Cowboys. Here are the top three takeaways.
