Green Bay Packers special teams coach Rich Bisaccia playfully taunted the Dallas Cowboys after the Packers secured a decisive victory with a score of 48-32 on Sunday night. As Bisaccia made his way back to the Packers’ locker room, he enthusiastically exclaimed, “How about them Cowboys?” in a nod to the famous phrase coined by Jimmy Johnson.
Captured by a reporter in the tunnel, Bisaccia’s remark came after the Packers dominated most of the game, establishing a commanding 27-0 lead at one point in the second quarter. Despite the Cowboys’ efforts to stage a comeback towards the end, the clock worked against them.
Quarterback Jordan Love showcased an impressive performance, completing 16 of 21 passes for 272 yards and three touchdown passes. His targets included Romeo Doubs, Luke Musgrave, and Dontayvion Wicks, each contributing to the Packers’ offensive prowess. Doubs led with six catches for 151 yards, Musgrave followed with three receptions for 52 yards, and Wicks added two catches for 52 yards.
Running back Aaron Jones played a significant role, scoring three touchdowns on the ground. Jones initiated the scoring with a 3-yard run, added another touchdown in the second quarter, and secured a third in the third quarter. In total, Jones amassed 118 yards on 21 carries.
This victory marked a historic moment as the Green Bay Packers became the first No. 7 seed to win a playoff game since the NFL expanded the playoffs four years ago.
Reflecting on the triumph, quarterback Jordan Love remarked, “We came in here with a mindset of we’re going to dominate. A lot of people were counting us out, and we didn’t care about that.”
