Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

Cowboys Dak & Zeke taking step back, Packers hope for success Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

Look no further than how Rodgers wrecked the Cowboys' season in an NFC Divisional playoff game at AT&T Stadium last January as proof of the damage he can do outside the pocket.

"I think it's important for any of us to be able to control our own narrative, and when you're having too many people talk for you, for most of us it's indirect, not somebody you're designating as somebody who's speaking for you", Rodgers said.

In fact, this is his first contest all season that owners do not have to worry about a tough, bruising defense looking to dominate the line of scrimmage.

In his past four games against the Cowboys, Rodgers has thrown for 1,183 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions. The Packers' secondary now ranks 5 against the pass and 19 against the run.

After a poor showing last week against the Rams, I expect the Dallas D to step up this Sunday. The absence of defensive backs Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Awuzie didn't help either.

Green Bay has won six of the last seven games it has played against the Cowboys in the regular and postseason, including two at Dallas.

The long-awaited return of defensive lineman David Irving has finally arrived and it couldn't have come against a more risky quarterback in Aaron Rodgers.

"To have a chance, first of all, to play in the National Football League is a tremendous honor", he said. After making a name for himself last season with four sacks, four forced fumbles and 12 tackles, Irving will add another dimension to Dallas' pass rush which could loosen up the line DeMarcus Lawrence to continue wreaking havoc in the backfield.

5 interceptions for Prescott in 17 games previous year, but 3 already this season.

The total has gone over in 14 of the Packers' last 20 games against the Cowboys. The Cowboys are struggling on defense, allowing 24.3 points and 365.3 yards per game.

The Cowboys offense has been up and down all season long, and that is not something that is a good sign. The Packers lost to the Cowboys in Lambeau Field a year ago in a game in which rookies Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott completely dominated the Packers.

Aaron Rodgers is primed for another big outing. Between the inability of the receivers to create separation and questionable play calling that has disabled the run game from finding a groove, the offense has bigger issues than Dak's play. However, this was at a time when the Packers' defensive secondary was falling apart. Rodgers rolled to his left, allowing Cook to get behind safety Byron Jones and fire a flawless pass down the sidelines. Time is the key because the Cowboys can apply pressure. Revenge is on my mind.

Rodgers is 13-2 against defenses Marinelli has coached in Detroit, where he was the head coach, and as an assistant in Chicago and Dallas.

The good news for Dallas is that it is playing a really dinged-up Green Bay team.

Meanwhile, Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott may have to come up with one of those 30-plus carry games if the Cowboys are to get back above the.500 mark.
