Packers Second Screen: At Cowboys

Both Green Bay Packers players were hurt during last Thursday's win over the Bears but still could play this Sunday at Dallas.

He also didn't help his cause by dropping four passes - two of the drops were nullified by defensive penalties - in the Packers' lone loss, at Atlanta.

Machota: I doubt that. Last week the Cowboys looked like they might take control of the Los Angeles Rams, both when they were up 17-6 and 24-13. The Cowboys are going to want to get back on track, as losing two straight at home certainly would not be a good start.

Thirty-year-old Glenn Bush, who lives in Dallas, said he bought one after getting a semi-automatic rifle as a Christmas gift. The NRA called on Thursday for regulators to " immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law".

On defense, the Cowboys rank 20th against the pass - surrendering 231.6 yards per game - which doesn't bode well with Mr. Rodgers strolling into town, injuries or not. Again, this is no reason to panic. "Just trusting the process and that's what we did a year ago at 4-6, just knowing we had the guys, we just needed to execute a little better". In recent years, Mike McCarthy's men have struggled to move the chains in the rushing game and Rodgers' individual form has been key to building momentum. The Green Bay Packers come into the game as the leaders of the NFC North with a 3-1 record. The Rams, facing a team allowing the second-most yards per rush in the National Football League, will try to improve on a 2-9 ATS mark over their last 11 games. The bad news? Aaron Rodgers is playing.

The Cowboys should look to run Elliott into the ground on Sunday as the Packers have given up five touchdowns to opposing running backs this season. They know what they're going to get. That being said, we think the talent level of the opposing defense will start to decrease and that probably starts on Sunday, too.

Rodgers and the Packers will present lots of problems. Elliott added four catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. I think Cole Beasley gets out of his mini-slump with a handful of catches for significant gains.

Then middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee in the fourth preseason game, forcing the Cowboys to scrap the plan.

All eyes will be on Rodgers. The Steelers and QB Ben Roethlisberger are 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 home games as a favorite of at least seven points. I also expect Rodgers and the Packers' offense to put up their share of points - one score more than the Cowboys. This will be the first meeting between these two teams since Green Bay's epic 34-31 playoff victory which culminated in a game-winning field goal by Mason Crosby with no time remaining.

Interestingly, last week the Cowboys were playing another team coming off a Thursday night/mini bye, and the Rams came back from an early double-digit deficit to chalk up a huge road win. My worry is on the defensive side when it comes to defending Rodgers. "It's just something that it's definitely something, I mean, it's not a revenge thing it's just something that is in the back of your mind and I guess that might be useful when it's game time". He's a rare combination of confidence and pure athleticism, but Bryant - who has touchdowns in three of his five games against the Packers - will be a big challenge for the rookie. Here's what we do know as Mike McCarthy's team brings a 3-1 record into this clash with the defending NFC East champions. The Packers with their personnel will make you pay if you don't stay disciplined in your coverage.
