Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers - 10/8/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The teams split two match ups last season, with Dallas winning at Green Bay during the regular season and the Packers winning at Dallas in the Divisional playoffs. In the two losses so far for the Cowboys, they have allowed 38.5 points per game.

The Packers gave a valiant effort but came up short 37-26.

That's what went through Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott's mind in the seconds after Rodgers rolled out to his left and found tight end Jared Cook for a 36-yard gain on a third-and-20 in last year's playoff game. The Pack played last week on Thursday night against the Bears.

Jason Garrett's club is heading into their bye week after this game and they'll be highly motivated to spend the time off above.500. They know what they're gonna get and we know what we're gonna get.

Daniels (hip), starting tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle), cornerbacks Davon House (quad) and Quinten Rollins (ankle), linebacker Ahmad Brooks (back), and receiver Davante Adams (concussion) are all questionable.

Montgomery looks less likely to play after he did not take part in any of the 11-on-11 drills during Thursday's full-pads practice. After the Packers lost that game, Montgomery had plenty of time to recover. A collection of quotes on the game. A playoff rematch that should see the Cowboys looking for a measure of revenge. A gutsy week two win in Washington to bounce back from a week one loss to the Giants put a super simplified offense on the field, one that would be unrecognizable later in the year but not after two more hard-fought wins against Chicago and then San Francisco on the road.

The biggest issue with the Cowboys offense has been their inability to control the time of possession. Now the Cowboys will see if they can pull out a win against one of the biggest conference rivals. This year's top pick, Taco Charlton, is also in a deep rotation.

Aaron Rodgers liked Aaron Jones right away. He missed the Rams contest and hasn't practiced all week. Back-to-back NFL Championships for the Packers, completing a run of three straight titles.

When the Cowboys have the ball.

At the moment, Elliott has the ninth most rushing yardage in the league; his average run, however, is a middling 3.6 yards. With the injury concerns on the offensive line for the Packers, Irving's return may be the ideal medicine for the pass rush minus DeMarcus Lawrence. However, the trick to beating the Cowboys is jumping to an early lead. Even if both play, the Cowboys are in much better shape and will be able to rebound with a home victory and cover at online sports betting sites. What this means is that Dallas is not as reliant on its QB as Green Bay is on Aaron Rodgers, who a year ago averaged 277 yard per game.

The Packers' 3-1 start this season is in line with their 4-0 start in 2015 and 3-1 start last fall. I like the Cowboys 27-24. The Cowboys, the more desperate team, will find a way.
