A lot of people didn’t think the Green Bay Packers had a shot at beating the Dallas Cowboys last week. At the top of that list might have been the Dallas Cowboys themselves.
Maybe they hadn’t been paying attention. Maybe they thought their home-field advantage was just too much to overcome. Maybe they were just overconfident.
Whatever the reason, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says his team underestimated Aaron Rodgers.
Jerry Jones on @1053thefan contributed some of Cowboys' slow start to "underestimating a little what we were up against in Rodgers."

That was stupid.
Rodgers and the Packers’ offense had been on an improbable run coming into the game. Rodgers hadn’t throw a pick in eight weeks and the Packers weren’t even pretending their defense was going to stop anyone. They were just going out there and outscoring people.
Sunday was no different.
As soon as the Packers held the Cowboys to field goal on the opening drive, we were all confident that Rodgers & Co. would put up seven and then it was off to the races.
Perhaps that explains why the Cowboys looked so dumbfounded early on in the game.
I really enjoy the Cowboys looking like they don't know what hit them.
