Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys: How we see it


Mark Eckel

The Green Bay Packers travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in a rematch of last year’s playoff game, won by the Packers, 34-31.

Green Bay comes into the game, 3-1, and with 10 days of preparation after beating the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football. Dallas is 2-2 after an upset loss at home to the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday.

Here’s the way the staff of sees the game.

Bob McGinn: This is a tough spot for the Packers, catching the Cowboys coming off a somewhat embarrassing home loss to the Rams that dropped them to .500. But, if Dallas defensive leader Sean Lee sits out again with a hamstring, it’s likely the Packers will outscore their favored foe at a venue that brings nothing but good vibrations.

Charlie McGinn: This is a tough spot for Green Bay. Dallas is sitting at 2-2 and one game back of Philadelphia in the NFC East. They are coming off an embarrassing home loss to the Rams and will undoubtedly be seeking revenge after getting bounced from the playoffs once again by Aaron Rodgers & Company. Dallas gets Elliot going early, controls the clock and comes up with a few timely stops. Dallas 28, Green Bay 24

Rob Reischel: Aaron Rodgers & Co. should have a field day against Dallas’ revamped secondary. Cowboys second-year running back Ezekiel Elliott averaged 141 yards and 5.64 yards per carry against Green Bay in two games last year. Elliott will put up big numbers again, but Rodgers will be even better as Green Bay wins a shootout. Green Bay 31, Dallas 27

Mark Eckel: The Cowboys are home, seek revenge, and at 2-2 are desperate for a win. Maybe, they’re just not as good as the Packers, especially with linebacker Sean Lee expected to miss the game. Aaron Rodgers throws three more touchdown passes and the defense gets its first of the season. Green Bay 28, Dallas 23
