NFL Total Predictions: Will the Packers, Cowboys hit the over? 10/6/17

Green Bay will be on the road next Sunday at division rival Minnesota (2-2), where they lost last season.

Jason Garrett's club is heading into their bye week after this game and they'll be highly motivated to spend the time off above.500.

The Packers entered last Thursday night's game against Chicago with concerns on defense after allowing 34 points to Atlanta and 24 points to Cincinnati over their previous two games.

With Ty Montgomery (ribs) saying he wants to play this week too, it looks like the Packers' backfield will be at full strength in Week 5. For now, he'll be looking for Jordy Nelson frequently and it sounds like Davante Adams will play despite getting crushed by Danny Trevathan 10 days prior.

"I don't like Aaron Rodgers, you know?"

When the Packers have the ball.

"Parity is good for the NFL", Aaron Rodgers said. There are no standouts beyond former number one pick Byron Jones at safety and they have nothing but untested rookies behind the starters.

The biggest issue with the Cowboys offense has been their inability to control the time of possession. Demarcus Lawrence already has 7.5 sacks in a month, on pace for 30 on the season. Few teams are as popular as America's Team and there is even more intrigue behind the Cowboys at this stage of things, with the world waiting to find out exactly what will happen with Ezekiel Ellliott's appeal and the Cowboys struggling out to a 2-2 record to start 2017. He missed the Rams contest and hasn't practiced all week. What makes it even more fantastic, Prescott wasn't a top five overall draft choice, but rather a round four pick, the 135th player taken overall. Rookie running back Jamaal Williams, who left Sunday's victory with a left knee injury, is apparently healthy enough to carry some of the load in Dallas.

It's all about Zeke. THe running back has 2 touchdowns this season on the ground.

"They had a real good offensive line a year ago, and they still have a lot of the same pieces", said Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews. That's just the way it's going to be", said Bulaga, who hurt the ankle in an August 23 practice, missed the first two games, then re-injured it against the Cincinnati Bengals "I'm just going to have to get it to a point where it's manageable enough and then just try to take care of it the rest of the way and keep it manageable.

The Cowboys have excellent weapons in Dez Bryant down field, Cole Beasley in possession routes and Hall of Famer to be Jason Witten at tight end. "There's so many situations like this, and we send our thoughts and prayers to these victims, and unfortunately keep having to stand up here and talk about this", Rodgers said.

Can the coaching staff anticipate the return ofMike Daniels from a hip injury to beef up a front seven that will be facing arguably the three best offensive linemen at their respective positions in tackleTyron Smith, centerTravis Frederick and guard Zack Martin?

The Cowboys' pass rush understands they have to get as much pressure on Rodgers as possible.

The Packers' 3-1 start this season is in line with their 4-0 start in 2015 and 3-1 start last fall. Why not this Cowboys team to advance to the NFC Championship Game at home against the Falcons?
