Rodgers Throws 3 TDs, Packers Rout Cowboys, 45-7

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers threw for 289 yards and three touchdowns, Brandon Jackson scored twice and the Green Bay Packers beat the disintegrating Dallas Cowboys 45-7 on Sunday night.

It was a new low point in a lost season for the Cowboys (1-7), who came into 2010 with Super Bowl aspirations. And it's sure to kick off a new round of speculation about the future of coach Wade Phillips, despite recent statements from team owner Jerry Jones that a midseason firing was unlikely.

James Jones caught eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown for the Packers (6-3), who have won three straight.

Green Bay's Clay Matthews added a final dose of embarrassment in the fourth quarter, picking off a pass from Jon Kitna and running it back 62 yards for a touchdown.
