Bend High School grad Luke Musgrave scored his first career NFL playoff touchdown Sunday as the Green Bay Packers blew out the favored Dallas Cowboys on the road.
With the Packers already up 34-16 in the third quarter and making swiss cheese out of the Cowboys’ vaunted defense, Musgrave broke free and was wide open on the right side of the field. He was able to outrun safety Jayron Kearse to the end zone for the 38-yard score to give the Packers a 25-point lead with 1:27 left in the third.

The Packers went on to win 48-32. They head to California next week to play the top-seeded San Francisco 49ers.
It’s the second career touchdown for the rookie, who missed several games this season due to injury.
Green Bay chose Musgrave out of Oregon State with the 42nd overall selection in the NFL Draft, a pick they acquired in the trade that sent four-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets.
