PASSING OFFENSE: D -- Tony Romo was sacked five times, fumbled once and threw a red-zone interception. The Packers double-covered Miles Austin and Roy Williams, and the latter hurt Dallas' chances with a fumble and a drop. It was one of the worst performances of the season for the Dallas offense.
RUSHING OFFENSE: F -- The Cowboys averaged 4.4 yards per carry, but they only rushed 14 times for 61 yards. They abandoned the run too early in a game that was 3-0 into the fourth quarter. Marion Barber looked like the old Marion Barber in the first quarter but Dallas got away from the ground game and never returned to it in the second half.
PASS DEFENSE: C -- The Cowboys limited Aaron Rodgers to 189 yards passing, and they sacked him four times. But they didn't force a turnover, and they gave up too many third-down conversions.
RUSH DEFENSE: C -- The Packers rushed for 105 yards on 28 carries, 3.8 yards per rush, but they did well enough to keep drives going and keep the Cowboys defense honest.
SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- Nick Folk, who missed a 38-yard field goal, is starting to raise some concerns with his consistency this year. He has four misses already this season after having just seven the first two years of his career. Needless to say, in a low-scoring game his early miss helped set the tone for what was to come.
COACHING: D -- The Cowboys abandoned the running game too early and then didn't find any rhythm with the passing game until the game was out of reach. They had been balanced all season. Why not on Sunday?
