Midway through the third quarter of a close, fairly low-scoring game at Green Bay, a scrum broke out between the Packers offense and Cowboys defense, deep in Dallas territory. After plenty of pushing and shoving after a completion from quarterback Aaron Rodgers to receiver Davante Adams, no one was ejected -- even though Packers tackle David Bakhtiari threw a Dallas player to the ground.
Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang, deemed to be the instigator, was flagged for unnecessary roughness. It moved Green Bay from third at one at the Dallas 7 to third and 16 at the 23. And it ultimately turned a potential touchdown drive into a field-goal attempt, which trimmed the 14-10 Cowboys’ lead to one, 14-13.
The game has had some other scattered pushing and shoving, but no major incidents. Yet.
