Aaron Rodgers started off the Turkey Day festivities in style, throwing for 348 yards and three touchdowns from 28 passes completed as the Green Bay Packers went on to demolish the Detroit Lions 34-12 yesterday at Ford Field in Detroit. The Lions first found themselves in good position just seconds into the game, after recovering a fumble in the opening kickoff. From there QB Matthew Stafford connected with Calvin Johnson for the lay-up TD from a yard away.
WR Donald Driver was awarded game MVP rights with seven receptions for 142 yards and a touchdown. Rodgers found it easier to locate his receivers yesterday due the improvements in Green Bay’s offensive line. “There were a couple times when I held the ball for 4 or 5 seconds — maybe more,” said Rodgers. “When you have that kind of time with the kind of players that we have, we feel like we’re going to make plays.” The struggling Lions will move on to face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Devember 6th as the Packers continue to fight for playoff contention the following day against the Baltimore Ravens.
The second NFL event of the day showcased the Dallas Cowboys at home outplaying the Oakland Raiders 24-7. Dallas notched the first score of the game with a field goal in the first quarter. Felix Jones added the pressure with a 46 yard kick return 1:12 into the second. QB Tony Romo later hooked up with Miles Austin and Roy Williams for six apiece to really solidify the win.
“I think we have a lot to prove — just for this season, though,” said Romo. “I don’t think any other season has any bearing whatsoever. For us, it’s strictly about right now and this next game. We’ll go from there.” Oakland is scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Steelers next Sunday as the Cowboys travel east to meet the New York Giants.
The evening contest featured the Denver Broncos offense working early and often against a frustrated Giants team at Mile High Stadium. New York, after starting the season 5-0 have now lost their last five of six games, pushing them back to third place behind the Eagles and Cowboys in the NFC East Division standings. “We didn’t have any tempo and we didn’t make any plays,” said Giants coach Tom Coughlin. “We keep talking about winning the physical battle and controlling the line of scrimmage. We thought this would be the night and it wasn’t.”
Broncos QB Kyle Orton had trouble finding the end zone, forcing kicker Matt Prater to keep busy during the holiday with four field goals. This marks Denver’s first November victory, standing one game behind the San Diego Chargers in the AFC West. They will next matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

The Dallas Cowboys are going into the 2009 training camp with a new mentality. Expected to make the Super Bowl, a dismal 9-7 2009 season means that Wade Phillips is not going to be to be a laid back coach anymore. Although the change may mean tougher training regimens, Cowboys players seem to welcome the new mentality. With the loss of wide receiver Terrell Owens, the Cowboys are going to use the running game more often. Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, and Felix Jones will anchor the running back corp. If the Cowboys want to make the playoffs, quarterback Tony Romo will have to step his game up with wideouts Roy Williams and Patrick Crayton. In what many consider to be the most competitive division, the Cowboys will need to defeat the Eagles, Giants, and Redskins for a chance to win.
