Gut Feeling: Writers' Final Preview Of Cowboys-Packers

Their last meeting was a 34-31 thriller in the NFC Divisional Playoff with the Packers winning it on Mason Crosby's dramatic 51-yard field goal as time expired, culminating one of the greatest postseason victories in franchise history. And although I didn't get to play for the Cowboys, I got to play against them, and I got to meet Roger Staubach.

Coming off of a surprising loss at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams in Week Four, the 2-2 Dallas Cowboys will welcome the 3-1 Green Bay Packers to AT&T Stadium this Sunday.

These five players should be watched closely on Sunday as the Cowboys look to move to 3-2 on the year. On Wednesday corners Kevin King and Davon House conducted an interview as a team. "There's been some additions to the team that have really helped with that locker-room culture that I was - and I think a number of other leaders were - anxious about after losing so many great leaders from last year's squad", Rodgers said. "We might not have the same type of leadership, but we might have a greater sense of unity because of some of the things that have happened and also some of the conversations that have been going on in here that were a little bit different than we've had in the past". That ability has yet to show itself thus far in 2017.

Meanwhile, the inexperienced Hawkins has much better speed and quickness than Burnett. I asked our ballboy if he can get it for me, and they ended up giving it to me in the locker room.

Rodgers has completed 107 of 160 passes for 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns, with five scoring tosses to Jordy Nelson.

Montgomery said the injury occurred on the first carry of Thursday's game. The Cowboys are favored but the Packers will win. Free-agent addition, Stephen Paea also appears like he will miss this game with a knee injury. He has continued to use his athleticism and smart decision making that he demonstrated a year ago, while having to make up for a running game that is not almost as strong as last season. "He's throwing the ball, and he makes plays when the drop-back phase breaks down". But he might be able to find similar success as a receiver in the middle of the field.

It will be interesting to see what kind of role, if any, cornerback Damarious Randall has in helping to stop the Dallas offense on Sunday. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 20.3 points and 321 yards per game. The running back is embroiled in the domestice violence policy suspension and appeal with the NFLPA's lawsuit seeking an injunction that block the six game punishment from taking effect. It would be a huge opportunity for the Packers' edge defenders if backup Byron Bell is forced into action. "I was at an event or something with some people and they're running the game back on NFL Network".

Davante Adams is traveling to Dallas and has cleared the concussion protocol, per source.

As for my prediction in the contest, I expect the Packers to win an extremely close game.

The Packers were impressive at home against the Bears, but the Bears are the Bears.

If Daniels, Adams, Bulaga, and Bakhtiari all return, then the Packers will have no excuses for losing.

The Kansas City Chiefs, the last unbeaten National Football League club at 4-0 after a 29-20 home win Monday over Washington, have a short rest week ahead of facing the Texans (2-2) and hot rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in a 57-14 rout of Tennessee last week.
