Both teams are looking like serious contenders in the NFC and this week could have serious playoff implications on the line. That's also the previous time they opened a season 2-3. The Dallas Cowboys pass defense isn't very good, so I can see Rodgers having a very good game. "When you have a young quarterback like that a big part of it is everybody believing in him, and him doing things necessary to earn that trust and that belief".
The Packers will look to win their third straight game when they face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Green Bay hasn't faced a back this year as productive as Elliott, and Elliott hasn't faced a run defense of the Packers' caliber.
"Completion percentage is really a complexion of all your components in your passing game", Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.
Aaron Rodgers is NFL's all-time leader in passer rating (103.6), yet he's topped 100 only once in his last 16 starts. The push came last week, when the Packers were handily beating the Giants before giving up a late touchdown; otherwise, that game would have resulted in another cover.
Warren Buffett's faulty tax critique of Donald Trump
Much like the candidates themselves, the tax plans put out by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could hardly be more different. After completing our taxes we all wonder just how large a refund we could actually get, because no one likes to pay taxes.
If any defense can force Prescott to do more, maybe it's Green Bay's. The Packers have given up 171 rushing yards on 86 carries for a 2 average, which ranks them 1st in the National Football League in rushing defense.
Even though Dak Prescott will have another big game, he will throw his first career interception. He is Rodgers' top target and without Nelson he was not almost as effective, although he still managed 31 touchdowns to just eight interceptions and almost made the NFC Championship game. A classic rivalry renewed between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. It will be a close game all the way through, but the Packers will make the necessary plays down the stretch. "I will be locked into the game plan, that defense, and what we have to do to win the game".
Rodgers has been off-target on more throws - short and long - this season.
Aside from Nelson the Packers don't have any other receivers who are true game-breaking threats on the outside, nor do they have any receivers who are as in tune with what Rodgers is thinking as Nelson is, and able to adjust their routes on the fly. Rodgers and Green Bay are incredibly tough to beat at home, but I think Dallas is getting disrespected here. What are your final score predictions?
"Maybe we'll have to throw it a little more, but who knows?"
