5 things to watch and a prediction for Packers vs. Cowboys

5 things to watch and a prediction for Packers vs. Cowboys

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are once again headed on the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys. He's a rare combination of confidence and pure athleticism, but Bryant - who has touchdowns in three of his five games against the Packers - will be a big challenge for the rookie. The Cowboys don't want Rodgers and the Packers coming around here no more, but this might not be the last dance in 2017 between the two NFC heavyweights. Injuries have so plagued the Packers that they have lost their top five offensive tackles, have a revolving door at running back and, more than ever, are relying on Rodgers' singular wizardry to win them games.

Sunday at AT&T Stadium, the Cowboys and Packers will meet for the fifth time in the last four years.

Cowboy fans haven't seen the Ezekiel Elliott they grew accustomed to in the 2016 season. 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. The Cowboys also exhibited some offense, specifically when they charged back into the game from down 28-3.

The game will be featured on your local FOX affiliate at 4:25 p.m.

That will make a huge difference for Green Bay, which has struggled to protect Rodgers through four games.

The Packers play the Cowboys Sunday afternoon in Arlington. Green Bay went into Dallas and pulled off a major upset, with Mason Crosby nailing a field goal as time expired to end the Cowboys' season.

Certainly, for the Packers, any key to victory starts with Aaron Rodgers. Favre admitted he wanted to wear the star on his helmet and that his favorite NFL player was one of the greatest Cowboys in the history of the franchise, transcription via Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.

Rookie third-round pick Jourdan Lewis looked terrific against the Los Angeles Rams and constantly seemed to be around the ball. Now, it would make things much more hard with a loss to the Packers, but it's not a must-win game.

The Packers have a banged up secondary so the Cowboys should look to take advantage. The Seahawks, who are underdogs to the Rams for the first time in six years, have QB Russell Wilson fully healthy but their pass protection and run blocking issues are heavy baggage to take into this matchup. The Packers have a chance to gain significant advantages across the board in the passing game.

The rematch came with much higher stakes in January when Dallas, the number one seed in the NFC playoffs, were swept aside by the "run the table" Packers in the unforgetable 34-31 thriller.

Question: Are the Redskins or Eagles the Cowboys biggest competition in the East? . To out-score Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, the Cowboys will need the offense humming, but it's not there yet. His presence will help a team who could be missing their defensive captain Lee for a second straight game. He was limited on Wednesday but rested on Thursday.

Packers running back Ty Montgomery may or may not play with broken ribs, and Davante Adams (concussion) is also hoping to suit up following a brutal hit in last week's 35-14 rout of the Chicago Bears. Considering they have the same skill-position players, the answers or explanations can directly be derived from the line.
