Cowboys can't focus too much on sacking Rogers

IRVING, Texas -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been sacked a league-high 37 times this year. The Packers have used numerous offensive linemen because of injuries and such.

But the Cowboys can't worry about that because Rodgers is able to move around the pocket, and he has a talented group of wide receivers who are good at scrambling to find open spots on the field and get open. Coach Wade Phillips praised veteran wideout Donald Driver as a pro and compared Greg Jennings to the Philadelphia Eagles' DeSean Jackson, a fast player who makes big plays in the passing game.

"The goals are all the same for us," defensive end Igor Olshansky said. "We've got to play the run tough and win first down. If we can get them in third and long and let guys like DeMarcus Ware and Jay Ratliff and all those other guys get sacks, they can make their dances."
