Packers Prepping For Dallas Cowboys

Packers Prepping For Dallas Cowboys

But when the Green Bay Packers' well-traveled tight end opens up - talking beyond the amusing self-descriptions ("In my family, I'm the rainbow", "I'm the Captain of Fun" and "I'm everybody's BFF" among them) and book recommendations (from children's classics such as Dr. Seuss and Winnie the Pooh to Paulo Coelho, Malcolm Gladwell and Eckhart Tolle) and non-football non sequiturs (this week's: "Sprinkles are delicious on cake!" as part of a discussion about winning a championship) - you realize that he's one self-aware cat who had evolved as a player and a person during his previous nine NFL seasons with four teams.

Trevathan will be frustrated for the foreseeable future, given his two-game suspension and the fact that he plays for the Bears.

Prescott is throwing the ball a full 20 percent more than past year as a rookie, and that hasn't been a good thing for Dallas. The first meeting came in the regular season at Lambeau. Green Bay has won six of the last seven games between the two teams, including five straight from November, 2009 to December, 2015. The Packers have done a good job against TEs through the first four weeks, holding opposing teams TEs to 12 catches, 106 yards and no TDs. During 7 starts during his career against the Cowboys, he's beat them five times.

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. I think he throws for 315 yards and three touchdowns in this game. It is a game that fans of both teams have been waiting for since last years NFC Divisional Playoff game. But in the playoffs, in Dallas, he was even better, throwing for 355 yards, two touchdowns and just one pick.

Afterward, Rodgers emphasized the importance of getting Bennett involved early in games - and reiterated this week just how vital that is. The Packers haven't reached 100 yards rushing in a game this season.

Outside of Rodgers, another key for the Packers, is going to be health. They played well, but the Packers are at their best with Bakhtiari and Bulaga. That's enough time for some serious R&R for a Green Bay squad that was listed 11 players on its injury report to start this week. What do you think of the Packers' running back situation?

Not only is Daniels one of Green Bay's best pass rushers, he is also stout against the run.

Green bay Packer running back Ty Montgomery says he will play on Sunday. Jones rushed for 49 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. Williams has nine rushes for 32.

Paddock's girlfriend, who was out of the country at the time of Sunday's shooting, said she had no idea he was planning an attack. Investigators have found 47 firearms that belonged to Paddock, a dozen of which were converted to mimic fully automatic weapons.

Dallas TE Jason Witten might have slowed down some with age, but his production value still remains very serviceable. Feels like past year, when Aaron Rodgers pretty much beat the 'Boys by himself, with a few boots from Mason Crosby. This is two sacks more than the next highest player in league. His presence should help against the run.

Much of the attention this Sunday will be on Dez Bryant, the Cowboys' premier receiver. This year, they've scored 94 points while surrendering 97.

Of course, it's always possible that the Packers lose this game.

The Cowboys needed to win the game against the Rams, it is that simple. He battled back problems last year and in camp this year. On another note: Green Bay playsat Dallas this Sunday, then at Minnesota. That could mean Elliott will be showcased a lot.

The Packers return to Cowboys Stadium, where they defeated Pittsburgh in the 2011 Super Bowl, with a 3-1 record and a share of the NFC North division lead to face a 2-2 Cowboys team coming off a 35-30 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

The Packers play the Cowboys Sunday afternoon in Arlington.

For Dallas, it was the worst possible way to end a surprise season. If Zeke goes off, though, which is a possibility, it's hard to see Green Bay escaping Jerry's World with a win. So keeping the Cowboys as one dimensional as possible is essential.
