Packers running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks: Lacy finished with 124 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries. His longest was a bruising 24-yard run in the fourth quarter. Starks added 71 yards on 11 attempts, including a 30-yard score in the fourth. Starks also had four catches for 32 yards, including a 13-yard TD on a swing pass.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers: The All-Pro threw for 218 yards and two touchdowns for a 99.5 passer rating. He had two third-down scrambles for first downs — a 16-yarder in the second quarter and an 11-yarder in the fourth — with both drives ending in touchdowns.

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews: With little fear of the Cowboys’ passing attack, Matthews played free and fast, finishing with six tackles, one sack, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hurry.

Cowboys running backs Darren McFadden and Robert Turbin: He finished with just nine carries, but McFadden racked up 111 yards with two big runs — 50 and 46 — accounting for the majority. Turbin carried seven times for 51 yards, including a 7-yard TD. His longest run was 22 yards.
