Sunday’s matchup between Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys was a special one. Rodgers’ Packers rolled to a 21-3 lead in the second quarter, but Prescott rallied the Cowboys, and they tied the score, 28-28, with a touchdown and 2-point conversion with 4:08 to play. Rodgers rallied his team to a go-ahead field goal with 1:33 left, but Prescott was up to the challenge. He drove the Cowboys into field-goal range, and they tied the score, 31-31, on a field goal with 35 seconds to go. Alas, the rookie left the veteran Rodgers too much time, and the Chico native guided the Packers to a game-winning field goal, and Green Bay prevailed, 34-31.
