Prescott throw for 3 scores, Cowboys beat Packers 30-16

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Rookie Dak Prescott is stating an impressive case to remain the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.

He's off to quite the start in his NFL career after taking over following veteran Tony Romo's preseason back injury.

Prescott threw for 247 yards and three touchdowns, and the Cowboys forced four turnovers in a 30-16 win over the Green Bay Packers and their dysfunctional offense Sunday.

The Packers had five fumbles on the day, losing three. Even two- NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn't immune from the jeering. Rodgers finished 31 of 42 for a season-high 294 yards.

"Look, we're upset, they're upset, it's part of it," Rodgers said of the booing. It's not the first time. Probably won't be the last time." The Packers didn't get into the end zone until Rodgers and Cobb connected on a 6-yard touchdown pass with 6:53 left to get within 27-16.
