The Dallas Cowboys are set to travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers in a week ten matchup. The Cowboys come into the game with a record of 6-2 and despite their impressive record through the first half of the season, they are still two games back from first place in the NFC East. On the flip side, the Packers have had a terrible start to the season and signs are pointing toward it not turning around for them. There is an apparent disconnect on the offensive side of the ball for Green Bay, and if things are not solved soon they will not see the postseason. This is a must win game for both teams, and if the Packers can play to their potential, this may end up being a must see game.
Dallas Cowboys Look to Follow Up Dominant Performance From Week 9
Last week, the Dallas Cowboys took down the Chicago Bears by a final score of 49-29. This game was explosive offensively on both sides. Quarterback Dak Prescott finished the game completing 21 of his 27 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Along with this running back Tony Pollard rushed for 131 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries.
This is a very winnable game for the Cowboys. Their offense has been playing at an elite level but will have a tough time moving the ball against a Packers’ defense that has been keeping the team alive.
Green Bay Packers Hope to Get Their Season Back on Track After Another Disappointing Performance In Week 9
The Green Bay Packers have been struggling through the first half of the season. They are coming off of yet another loss in week nine, this time, coming at the hands of the Detroit Lions. Once again, the Packers’ defense stepped up to the plate, however, their offense could not close out the game. The Packers were defeated by a final score of 15-9. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had another rough game against a mediocre Lion’s defense. He finished the game with 291 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. For reference, in his MVP winning year last season, Rodgers only threw four interceptions in the entire year.
There is a clear issue on the offensive side of the ball. Rodgers and the receiving core are not on the same page and have not been for the majority of the year. If this problem is not fixed, there is little to no shot of the Packers making a playoff run, and they likely will not be able to pull out a win against the Cowboys this week. While this is a clear issue, the Packers still did not make any moves at the trade deadline, and also have not acquired any receivers in free agency either.
The Packers may have a chance to win this game if Rodgers can turn back the clock and get the Green Bay offense back in line, however, if this does not happen, they likely will be once again unable to bring home a win.
