Aaron Rodgers had Davante Adams replacement all along in Christian Watson, Dak chokes at Lambeau

Romeo Doubs, Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Robert Tonyan… No. The name is Christian Watson. The 6’5 rookie had a 3 touchdown game to bring some much needed warmth in 31° Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers rallied back to beat the Cowboys in Overtime (28-31).

Matt LaFleur’s Packers tried a new run-heavy approach against the Cowboys on Sunday. The strategy paid off, and gave Aaron Rodgers offense more unpredictability. The veteran QB connected with rookie Christian Watson on three occasions for a much needed win.

Christian Watson has ‘coming out’ party against the Cowboys

Watson, a 2nd round pick from North Dakota State, finished with 4 receptions for 107 yards and is the first Packers rookie since Keith Woodside in 1988 to have more than one touchdown catch in a game. His three touchdowns were the first of his NFL career.

Rodgers found Watson for a 39-yard score on fourth-and-7 with 13:23 left. They connected again on a game-tying 7-yard TD with 2:29 remaining.

The rookie then had a 58-yard touchdown — amazingly, the Packers’ longest completion of the season — in the second quarter. He celebrated by doing a back flip.

Th Cowboys don’t need Zeke, they need Dak to step up

Dak Prescott is still feeding the Cooper Rush debate. The Cowboys signal caller had 2 interceptions and threw for 58% (27/46). He also managed to waste a Dallas 14-point lead in the 4th quarter and the Cowboys first possession in OT.

Meanwhile, Tony Pollard is proving once again that he should be Dallas’ starting back. The Cowboys never missed Zeke and did just fine with Tony Pollard (22 carries for 115 yards and a TD) and Malik Willis (5 carries for 38 yards).

Mike McCarthy: failed revenge game in Green Bay

Mike McCarthy made his name in the NFL as the long-time Packers coach, including their 2010 Super Bowl win and had a 125-77-2 record with Green Bay before getting fired in 2018. This was his game playing against the Cowboys since he took over the reigns in Dallas.
