GREEN BAY, Wis (TSN-WSAU) The Green Bay Packers dominated the reeling Dallas Cowboys, coasting to a 45-7 win. The Packers outgained the Cowboys 415-to-205 yards. The Packers controlled every phase of the game.
Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns while Brandon Jackson scored once on the ground and once through the air. Rodgers was 27-of-34 passing for 289 yards while James Jones finished with eight catches for 123 yards and a score for the Packers (6-3), who have won three straight to move into first place in the NFC North heading into their bye week.
Greg Jennings caught seven passes for 80 yards and a score for Green Bay, which got a touchdown from Nick Collins on a fumble return and an interception return for a score from Clay Matthews.
Jon Kitna, making his second straight start in place of an injured Tony Romo, was 19-for-30 with 183 yards, one score and two interceptions for the Cowboys (1-7), who have dropped five in a row -- including the last two by double- digits. Dez Bryant caught the lone touchdown, the sixth of his rookie campaign, which leads all freshmen in the NFL.
This was the most lopsided loss for the Cowboys since the last week of the 2008 season, when they were handed a 44-6 defeat by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Packers are off next week. Their next game is November 21 in Minneapolis against the Vikings.
