    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Rookie Dak Prescott is stating an impressive case to remain the starting quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.Hes off to quite the start in his NFL career after taking over following veteran Tony Romos 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.Prescott was 18 of 27 and shook off two fumbles and an interception to lead the Cowboys (5-1) to their fifth straight win.You just couldnt ask for more inspiration from a player because everybody on this team knows what a difficult position that is to play, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said.Prescott showed poise in the fourth quarter while marching the Cowboys on a seven-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley for an 18-point lead with 10:26 left.Romo seems to be getting closer to returning. After a bye, Dallas next plays on Oct. 30 against Philadelphia.Asked if Prescott would remain the starter against the Eagles even if Romo was ready, Jones only said, I wouldnt say unequivocally anything other than we just beat the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay.Prescott picked on a Packers secondary that played much of the game without their top three cornerbacks because of injuries.His fourth-quarter touchdown pass left Packers fans at Lambeau stunned.

Rodgers finished 31 of 42 for a season-high 294 yards.Look, were upset, theyre upset, its part of it, Rodgers said of the booing. Its not the first time. Probably wont be the last time.The Packers didnt 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.Rodgers accounted for two turnovers with an interception to go with a fumble on first-and-goal at the Cowboys 1 with 1:10 left in the third quarter. It was a designed draw play out of an empty backfield.RECORD STREAK OVERPrescott threw the first interception of his career after he was picked off on third-and-8 from the Dallas 6, throwing out of his end zone with 20 seconds left in third quarter. Safety Morgan Burnett had the diving interception.Prescotts NFL record streak for a quarterback at the start of his career without an interception ended at 176 pass attempts. He broke the mark of 162 previously held by New Englands Tom Brady earlier in the game.We get that out of the way now, Prescott said with a laugh. Another one to start up.OUT OF SYNCDrops were a problem again at times for Packers receivers. Timing may have been off on a couple other throws.Rodgers and McCarthy said the Packers would figure out the problems after watching the film.Were hard on ourselves, and Im as hard as anybody on myself. So Im going to get it fixed. Just been a little bit off, Rodgers said.It was Green Bays worst defeat at home with Rodgers as the starting quarterback since a 37-20 loss to the Giants in the 2011 NFC divisional playoffs.STRENGTH VS. STRENGTHDallas dented Green Bays league-best run defense.The Cowboys rushed for 93 yards in the first half against the Packers, which was already a season high against Green Bay.
