The Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys are taking on one another for the sixth time in the past five seasons, eerily similar to the 1990s when the two teams played each other 10 times from 1991-99. Opponents have reached the red zone only nine times all season, tied for the second-lowest total in the league, but they've scored seven TDs and two field goals.
"Part of that was three of those games were because we had home-field advantage", said former Cowboys safety Darren Woodson, who played with Dallas from 1992-2003.
"Man we just wanted to go out and compete, show the crowd who we were on the opposite side of the ball and just go ahead and play four quarters and make sure we did our job on that side of the ball", Clinton-Dix said during an appearance on the "Beyond the Game" feature on WITI-TV in Milwaukee.
The Dallas media persisted and Garrett politely obliged.
"I don't think we've had all our starters playing at once", House said. If they play, the Packers get a huge bump in terms of protecting Rodgers. Adams avoided major injury, but it might be unrealistic for him to play vs. Dallas. The Green Bay Packers come into the game as the leaders of the NFC North with a 3-1 record.
But Prescott has demonstrated strong leadership skills, which he honed during his time with the Bulldogs - and not just on the football field, either. "But, at the end of the day, it's going to be up to me". And then you can talk about it.' But we had the better record. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams. The Cowboys' loss to Los Angeles distills some of the hype going into the rematch with the Packers. Dallas (2-2 SU, 2-2 ATS) was a preseason favourite to repeat in the NFC East but finds itself a game behind Philadelphia.
Elliott faces a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy in relation to a domestic violence claim against him. Jones rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries.
Ezekiel Elliott has been slow starting this season, with just 277 yards in 4 games on the ground.
"Every game there's one or two plays where a couple of guys are messing up", Hitchens said. "Very productive. That will be a big challenge for our defense".
"Disjointed" is the word Rodgers used to describe the situation, and the Packers have adapted, but the two-time MVP would also like to see a "more dynamic" offense. The return of Bakhtiari and/or Bulaga would alleviate the need for extra pass blockers and therefore give Aaron Rodgers more time spent looking for holes in the defense and less time running for his life.
"I thought Ty practiced well yesterday", McCarthy said before Thursday's practice.
