Cobb: Packers 'missed on opportunities'
USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin caught up with Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb, who shared his thoughts on Sunday’s 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. This Q&A is presented by Tundraland:
What were your thoughts about the game?
“The game went away. We missed on opportunities.”
How tough is it to see your offense not be able to get into a groove?
“I don’t think that was the case tonight. It was just turnovers and not putting points on the board in the red zone. We moved the ball really well. I think we had the same amount of first downs as they did (24 each). We moved the ball extremely well. It’s just you can’t have those plays in the red zone where you turn the ball over and you don’t put points on the board. You can’t have the other team scoring touchdowns and you’re scoring field goals.”
So do you just kind of throw this game out because turnovers are so uncharacteristic for this team?
“You don’t throw this out. You learn from your mistakes, you learn from what happened in this game and you move forward. That’s part of life. Things happen, you deal with it and move forward.”

What happened on your touchdown? What was the play?
“It was just a quick little out-route. We caught the defender sleeping and were able to get the ball in the end zone.”
Was there something different on that touchdown drive that helped you move the ball down the field so quickly?
“Score our points. I mean, we’re playing from behind, they’re playing soft. We were able to hit some holes in their zone and move the ball down the field fast and score our points, get some points on the board in that drive.”
How do you feel physically after the hit you took at the end of the game last week against the Giants?
“I’m fine, played the whole game.”
