Packers QB Aaron Rodgers discusses his success playing in Dallas
The Green Bay Packers may reside in Wisconsin, but they have a second home in Texas. In their last four appearances at AT&T Stadium, in Arlington, including a Super Bowl, the Packers are a perfect 4-0. On Sunday, they’ll try to make it 5-0, when they face the Dallas Cowboys in their territory.
For Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Arlington is where he is comfortable. That’s indicated in his last two performances, where he strung together game-winning drives in both.
“Some places you feel really comfortable,” he said, via Mike Spofford of Packers.com, going on to talk about all the “stimuli” in the building, such as the massive video boards hanging over the field and the players’ walk through a fan club area from the locker room to the field, aspects no doubt designed to at least distract if not intimidate a visitor…
“When I think about that stadium over the years, we’ve had a great green-and-gold presence. It’s been fun to hear the cheers as you leave the field after a win there.”
In Rodgers’ last two appearances at AT&T Stadium combined, he has thrown for 577 yards, five touchdowns and one interception on a 65.3% completion rate, good for a 107.2 passer rating.
Can Rodgers and the Packers continue their dominance in Arlington on Sunday? The quarterback will have to attempt to do so without his No. 1 option, wide receiver Davante Adams — who caught a game-winning touchdown the last time the two played.
Both the Packers and Cowboys enter the game with 3-1 records and are on-top of their respective NFC divisions.
