The Dallas Cowboys travel north to the not-yet frozen tundra of Green Bay to take on the Green Bay Packers. What are we predicting?
The 4-1 Dallas Cowboys face off against a familiar opponent on Sunday when they travel to Lambeau to take on the 3-1 Green Bay Packers. Recent history suggests this is a can’t miss match-up and likely prove as a benchmark for both teams.
To Dallas, this is the biggest game to date and may say a lot about who the Dallas Cowboys start at quarterback after their bye week when Tony Romo comes back.
Here’s what the experts at Sport DFW are predicting…

The Dallas Cowboys take on Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau field in this NFC showdown. This is another “measuring stick” game for promising rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, so far he’s proven to be the real deal in every way.

Dak will continue his stellar play and exploit the Packers poorly ranked pass defense, throwing a few touchdown passes along the way. Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas offensive line will test the Packers top-notch run defense. Zeke will gain over a 100 yards and score a few touchdowns as he continues to shine.
Dak will keep the QB controversy going with a spectacular performance as he leads Dallas to a convincing victory over Rodgers in his Packers.
The defense will improve from last week and pressure Rodgers all day.

The Dallas Cowboys head to Green Bay for yet another test to this team. Many people are picking Green Bay mostly due to home field advantage. But there are some things I think they are missing:
- Green Bay’s running game is riddled with injuries and almost non-existent at this point. This means Green Bay will have to do most of its damage in the passing game.
- While the Cowboys look like they have an improved pass rush, they haven’t allowed a 100 yard receiver this season. This plays into the Cowboys hand.
- Dallas shown they can and will control the clock with the run. The Packers do have a stout run defense, but with their issues in offense I think the Cowboys can and will wear them down.
I expect a huge game from Cole Beasley and Ezekiel Elliot.

The numbers say this is a battle between one of the best run-stopping defenses (Packers) against one of the most dominant rushing attacks (Cowboys). And at the end of the day, it’s likely the winner of this battle of strengths will decide the winner.
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense have yet to hit their stride this season but I don’t expect that to continue today. Coming off their best defensive performance of the season, I expect the Cowboys defense to fall back to earth. Aaron Rodgers will have a big day and offer up a pair of “discount double-checks”.
Dom Capers and the Packers defense are strong up front and will keep Zeke from gaining the easy yards and Dak from standing clean in the pocket. This is certain to be a hard-fought game and I fully expect it to come down to the wire.
