Aaron Rodgers: No surprise he's Offensive Player of the Week

Recapping the NFC North in Week 5 Packers on top

Aaron Rodgers had more magic in store for the Dallas Cowboys, who can't seem to find the mojo that carried them a year ago.

But it was his arm and his legs that helped the Packers on that final drive in Dallas ... the drive that was the factor earning him the player of the week honor.

He did no less than orchestrate a 75-yard drive, capping it off with the pass to Adams to seal the victory.

Keenum, who set an NCAA standard at the University of Houston by passing for more than 5,000 yards three times, told reporters he anticipates starting this week and every week. We don't play with 11 guys on offense.

Adams had been in the concussion protocol but was active 10 days after leaving the field on a stretcher on a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan. He also scrambled for a touchdown both times he faced Minnesota in 2016.

Michael Jordan concerned about National Basketball Association super teams
Jordan, 54, also said he lacks the patience to be a coach, saying his biggest problem is the focus level of today's players. Social media, Twitter, all types of things that have invaded the personal time of individuals.

But another defensive letdown, just like a year ago in the postseason, left Dallas (2-3) already with the same number of losses from its magical rookie season in which Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott led the Cowboys to the top seed in the NFC.

The Packers have dominated the entire NFC North division over the last decade as is indicated by their individual records against each team. Green Bay rallied from 15 points behind in the first half after letting a 21-3 lead get away in last season's playoff win. The Pack got off to a slow start to the season, going just 1-1, with their star quarterback and two-time league MVP Aaron Rodgers looking uncharacteristically rusty in those first few games.

On the ground, Jerick McKinnon rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown in 16 attempts while Latavius Murray added 31 yards in 12 attempts.

Ty Montgomery was in pads with significant protection visible on his broken ribs. And just the threat of the run is about all coach Mike McCarthy's pass-oriented offense really needs.

Back in Week 4, Rodgers threw four touchdown passes.

We can not aid Puerto Rico 'forever'
The social media company's video from the island, however, took flak from tech critics as being insensitive to Puerto Rico. In a series of tweets , the president added, "electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes".

While left guard Lane Taylor slid over in place of Bakhtiari and did a respectable job, Rodgers once again had to use his legs to escape several hairy situations to make plays and to move the team. Rodgers made the grab as Lewis turned too late.

"The plan has been fantastic", Rodgers said Wednesday. "With his eyes, he said, 'Throw a better ball'". Left tackle David Bakhtiari hasn't played since his Week 1 hamstring injury, and right tackle Bryan Bulaga missed three of the first four games because of an ankle injury.

"You hate to ever have one of your key cogs not in there", defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

"When you can look at the plan going into it on third downs and red zone, and go, 'This one's probably a touchdown, this one's probably a touchdown, ' and then you go out and execute it, it feels pretty good", Rodgers said. It was vintage Rodgers, making critical plays in clutch moments.
