When Aaron Rodgers said the Packers needed to be all-in last January, he was surely referring to bolstering the team through roster additions. "And although I didn't get to play for the Cowboys, I got to play against them, and I got to meet Roger Staubach".
And it all starts with 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott, who despite already throwing three INT's after just five all of last year, continues to impress. The Packers were 14-2 in the season's second quarter from 2011-14.
Against Marinelli's defenses, Rodgers is 347 of 516 for 4,252 yards with 29 touchdowns, eight interceptions and a passer rating of 104.7.
So what does all this mean for Dak? In the two losses so far for the Cowboys, they have allowed 38.5 points per game.
So by that rationale, he should be in good shape this week. The package won't work if none of the defensive lineman can eventually get to the quarterback, and if only Lawrence and Collins show they are able to do that with any kind of consistency then opposing offenses will just neuter the pass rush by double teaming the each of them. Prescott is a QB1 with some moderate upside.
But enough about last season, this Sunday will be the 2017's online National Football League betting season Week 5 and there are plenty of eye catching matches. He is dealing with a couple of bruised ribs but the Packers are not that scary against the run.
The Dallas Cowboys are looking to get back on track.
The Packers have a banged up secondary so the Cowboys should look to take advantage. Earlier reports had Montgomery "day-to-day", but he seems no better than 50/50 to play this Sunday. The Packers will try to pick up another win over the Cowboys this Sunday afternoon. After the Packers lost that game, Montgomery had plenty of time to recover. Nelson missed the divisional playoff game at Dallas the following week, but returned two weeks later for the NFC Championship Game in Atlanta.
Dallas linebacker Anthony Hitchens practiced fully for the first time this season coming off a knee injury on the same day Charles Tapper broke a foot, likely the start of a lengthy absence for the defensive end. "You just don't see guys like that", Marinelli said. It would be the Packers fourth of the season. That's 35-year-old tight end Jason Witten.
The Cowboys offense has been up and down all season long, and that is not something that is a good sign. The interesting thing about those targets is that he makes the a lot of them.
"Played well", McCarthy said of Jones, who in preseason led the Packers in rushing (19 carries, 105 yards, 5.5-yard average) and also caught six passes, including two for touchdowns. He makes everyone around him better.
Jason Witten (Tight End): The Green Bay defense has been awful except against opposing tight ends.
With the most recent outcome on Thursday evening, there is only hope that this last Bears game in Green Bay will be the last in a very dubious stretch of bad play against a rival that makes up the NFL's oldest rivalry.
