Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

However, the Packers have won six of their last seven games against Dallas, and they've covered the spread in five of those games.

Trevathan, who will lose $117,647 of his salary, said Thursday night after the Bears' 35-14 loss to the Packers that the hit not intentional. Fantasy Tip: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had more than 100 yards rushing in both games against Packers last season. Green Bay fell apart in the NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons last season after upsetting Dallas because they were so beat up, and the injuries have already started piling up after the first month. If they are, a head-to-head win could be a huge tie breaker. The Cowboys aren't quite the same dominant club without two linemen - Ronald Leary, who signed with the Denver Broncos, and Doug Free, who retired.

This season, the Dallas Cowboys running game has gone from being one of the best in the league to being average. Is he good enough to hold is own against Bryant? The quarterback has tossed for more than 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns. 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. He was officially listed as doubtful on Green Bay's final injury report. He'll be a factor Sunday, but I don't think he'll be up to full speed until probably after the bye week when the Cowboys play at San Francisco.

With all due respect to Clay Mathews, Jordy Nelson, and the few stars who freckle the roster, the Packers are a bunch of guys and Aaron Rodgers. He's been part of the teammate-to-teammate discussions about social issues related to NFL players' protests during the national anthem, had two teammates (Lance Kendricks, Kevin King) support and join him when he sat for the anthem before the team's September 24 game against Cincinnati, and was the primary author of an open letter to fans last week about the players' idea of a show of "unity" before last week's game.

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

"It's a big stadium (the largest in the NFL), it's a unique place to play, and we have some fond memories of being in that building".

Another rookie, Xavier Woods has looked promising at the starting safety position and could be in for additional snaps as current starter, Jeff Heath continues to struggle. Rodgers should also have last seasons' breakout receiver Davante Adams available for Sunday after he passed the concussion protocol and is expected to play, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

How can I watch the Packers and Cowboys?

The first key will be, run efficiently. The Packers have a chance to gain significant advantages across the board in the passing game.

Their last meeting was a 34-31 thriller in the NFC Divisional Playoff with the Packers winning it on Mason Crosby's dramatic 51-yard field goal as time expired, culminating one of the greatest postseason victories in franchise history.

Question: Are the Redskins or Eagles the Cowboys biggest competition in the East? . Get too far upfield, and Rodgers will escape out the pocket either way and pick apart the Cowboys' secondary. He was limited on Wednesday but rested on Thursday.

Green bay Packer running back Ty Montgomery says he will play on Sunday.
