Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

Share

Although this game will be played in Dallas, I like the Packers to win this game in what should be one of the higher scoring matchups of the weekend. And though they were expected to be much the same this year, it hasn't stuck to script just yet.

It was past year, in fact, for Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers - before they beat the Cowboys on the road in a divisional playoff on their playmaking quarterback's improbable completion that set up the winning field goal.

Both teams are dealing with injuries and in terms of making the playoffs, a loss for the Packers would tie them with Dallas at 3-2 in the conference. I believe that the Cowboys have the understanding of what it takes to move the ball against this Packers defense.

Rodgers is the man responsible for the Cowboys' early exits in their past two playoff trips (2014 and 2016).

Green Bay faced its oldest rival last Thursday, and now heads to Dallas to face another. Is he good enough to hold is own against Bryant? Both of those wide receivers are taller than Dez as he and King are both the same height, so it should be a more physical battle than usual. "And in that Denver game, they were playing from behind".

Just four weeks into the season, Green Bay (3-1) is beat up and struggling with injuries to key starters. The Green Bay Packers come into the game as the leaders of the NFC North with a 3-1 record.

"There's a lot of history between the Packers and the Cowboys, a dominant team in the '90s", Ditka said. The Packers looked unbelievable last game and are poised to build on their two-game winning streak.

Dallas, which is 2-2 SU and 2-2 ATS, isn't quite as loaded along the offensive line as it was last season, which has put more of the onus on QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott. "Sometimes you see him on film and defenders will be covering him up with real good technique, and he still finds a way to come away with the football to make plays for their team".

Rookie third-round pick Jourdan Lewis looked terrific against the Los Angeles Rams and constantly seemed to be around the ball.

Even still in the concussion protocol, Davante Adams did practice this week and there's a chance he might get cleared by an independent neurologist before kickoff. Green Bay is averaging 25.5 points and 361 yards per game on offense this year, but injuries to the line and in the backfield have made them one dimensional again. The matchup will mark the fifth straight season with at least one meeting between the two franchises.

"It feels great. It's the one positive of a Thursday night game", receiver Jordy Nelson said of the brief respite. His ability to pick up yardage in the running game as well as the passing game makes this offense extremely hard to stop. Their injury list was long this week, but with most players fully participating. On top of that, Cowboys LT Tyron Smith appeared on the team's injury report this week with a recurring back injury, and he didn't practice Thursday or Friday. They will look to get their 3rd win in a row as they travel to Dallas this Sunday.

He broke his ribs in Week Four and is wearing extra protection around them however he has already conceded that he will not put his long-term health in jeopardy to play this week.
