The Packers defense was stingy with points after the half, while the offense delivered. Green Bay allowed just one Dan Bailey field goal in the third quarter. Rodgers hit Jordy Nelson for a touchdown, and Mason Crosby added a field goal. But it was the defense that made the difference with a Damarious Randall 21-yard interception returned for a touchdown.
But coach Mike McCarthy opted to go for two after the pick-six, and the attempt was unsuccessful. Had McCarthy just gone for the extra point, Green Bay could have won the game with a field goal after the Cowboys took that 31-28 lead. It didn’t matter in the end with Rodgers on the field.
Elliott is glad to have the support of his teammates.
“We’re a very close group,” Elliott said. “We’ve talked about it many a time and that’s what family is for, that’s what a brotherhood is for, just to reach out. My teammates have done a great job picking me up when I’m down and making sure I’m able to stay focused and be the running back I need to be for this team.”
