Arlington, TX - The Packers defense stepped up again, on the road, to lead Green Bay to a 34 - 24 victory in a game few had the Packers winning. 

"The turnovers. That was the difference today," said head coach Matt LaFleur after his team improved to 4&1 on the season. "When you're plus-three in the turnover margin, there's a pretty good chance you're going to come out victorious."

Green Bay intercepted Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott three times, and in a week when former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis questioned whether the team had any defensive team leaders after Clay Matthews left, Za'Darius Smith had two sacks, and Preston Smith added another.

As a result, the Packers are now atop the NFL for turnover differential, a plus 7, tied with the undefeated New England Patriots.
