Davante Adams was a hero, but way too soon

Davante Adams wore a backpack as he stood against a locker room wall and looked like he had just finished a leisurely walk to the neighborhood bookstore. Other than a scratch above his left eye, the Green Bay Packers receiver revealed no hint of the occupational hazards he is paid to navigate on a weekly basis.

We’ve reached the two-minute warning. Dallas has the ball in the red zone, trailing by four with exactly two minutes to go.

After review, Beasley is ruled down a half-yard short and the Cowboys elect to go for it on fourth down. On the play, Ezekiel Elliott takes a handoff and appears to be brought down short of the first down marker. But, following review, the ruling on the field is overturned and Dallas’ drive continues.

Prescott hits Cole Beasley on a third-and-5 right near the marker. Beasley is originally ruled to have picked up the first down, but the play is under review.

Dallas moves the chains after the holding penalty. The Cowboys now have it at the Green Bay 29 with a fresh set of downs.

The Cowboys cross midfield and move into Green Bay territory, but they are called for a holding penalty. Dallas now faces a second-and-10 from its own 48, trailing by four with 6:24 to go.

Touchdown Packers. Green Bay retakes the lead on a pick-6. Prescott throws a pass intended for Terrance Williams. But the ball bounces off Williams’ hands and into the arms of cornerback Damarious Randall, who returns it into the end zone for a 21-yard score. Green Bay goes for two but doesn’t convert and it now leads 28-24. x (1)
