Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy went into Lambeau Field on Sunday looking to get some revenge on the franchise that fired him back in the 2018 season. Instead, he left with an embarrassing 31-28 overtime loss against an Aaron Rodgers-led team that had lost five straight games coming into Sunday.
The Cowboys coughed up a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter and then failed to get any points on their opening drive in overtime. That drive came to an end after McCarthy opted to go for it on 4th and 4 from the Packers’ 35 yard line.
Rodgers and the Packers then got the ball, drove down the field, and won the game on a 17-yard FG by Mason Crosby.
McCarthy was not happy after that 4th down failure by his offense:
