Packers vs. Cowboys Betting Odds & Picks: Who’s the Class of the NFC?
Oct 08 2019
Head coach Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys during play against the Green Bay Packers at AT&T Stadium on October 06, 2019 in Arlington, Texas. But it should be noted that they beat 3 bad teams. And an unhappy Jerry Jones plus cameras and recorders at the ready means quotes are coming. The second-year pro should be treated as a WR4/5 for Week 5 until back at full speed next Sunday against the Jets. By the end of the third quarter, Jones had the four touchdowns on 12 rushes for 87 yards. So obviously, the Packers didn't get the memo and chose to allow the Cowboys to crawl back into the game. Also, the Cowboys have not really allowed much yardage to receivers though, as they rank 5th in fantasy points allowed to receivers. He also added seven catches for 75 yards (10.7 average).
It's fair to say the Cowboys defense has no answers for Aaron Jones.
The fact is, Marnielli's scheme has continually put Dallas behind the eight-ball and no one wants to admit it for some reason.
"We have a quarterback that is renowned for his ability to protect the ball, so that ongoing concern is not a challenge that I'm anxious about. We're going to keep getting better, we're going to be able to take things like this on the chin, learn from them and get better because of that-simply because that attitude". "I feel like it gave them a lot of momentum in the game, and, 'I got it, ' that's what I was thinking". "A tough team with that defense".
Rodgers didn't light up the scoreboard on Sunday - he completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 238 yards, with no passing touchdowns and no picks - but he didn't have to. Jones logged 19 carries for 107 yards and four touchdowns, becoming the first Packers halfback to have four rushing touchdowns in a game since Dorsey Levens in 2000.
The Cowboys (3-2) lost their second straight game and dropped into a tie with Philadelphia atop the NFC East after winning their first three, just as the Packers had done. Those teams are a combined 2-12, and both wins belong to NY.
Green Bay Packers AnalysisThe biggest issue for the Packers this week is that Davante Adams is injured. If you do, if you got a problem with it, then you've got a problem with all of us. But the point is that what you see is what you get here. But we'll get to that in a moment. When the offense can soften the aggression of the opposing team's linebackers, good things will happen, and today a good thing happened. And they're starting to come together. We knew going into this game that we had to be physical. Adams doesn't need to practice to play, but if he doesn't practice on Friday, I'd think it's unlikely he suits up.
