Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys - Free NFL Pick

Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys - Free NFL Pick

No one in the front seven has played more than Smith's 227 snaps. Assuming that happens, Williams and Jones will be able to put up a good outing for Green Bay. Cole Beasley has started slowly this year, but he's one of the best slot receivers in the entire league, with exceptional quickness and change-of-direction ability.

The Packers come into this matchup riding a two-game winning streak over the Bengals and Bears to a 3-1 record overall, while the Cowboys have had a mostly up-and-down season coming in at 2-2 after a hard-fought loss to the upstart Los Angeles Rams. As of October 5, the Packers are valued at 10/1 to win the Super Bowl in markets listed with Oddschecker but Green Bay do still have their critics - and checking out promotions and free bet offers might be wise. And so it's no wonder that their meeting in Dallas on Sunday is all but the stand-alone game of the week.

"I'm happy with the progress that we've made health-wise", Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday when asked about the tackles. In four games, the second-year pro is averaging just 3.6 a carry, which might explain why Dallas is 2-2.

The NFC East is looking like it is going to be a highly competitive battle for much of the season, I would not rule the New York Giants out just yet as each team has a fairly hard schedule. Injuries have so plagued the Packers that they have lost their top five offensive tackles, have a revolving door at running back and, more than ever, are relying on Rodgers' singular wizardry to win them games. I'll be live blogging it here on Get More Sports, so come hang out with me and watch the game. It was a great example, even in defeat, of how McCarthy uses the mini bye to get his team playing at a high level.

If the Cowboys had the identical offensive line, of course.

Well, that's not what's best for the Cowboys. In the playoff matchup past year, he accounted for nine catches 132 yards and two TDs, seemingly having his way against the thin Packers secondary. Though they led the league in rushing previous year, it was flawlessly blended, running the ball on 48.7 percent of their snaps. In those seven games, Rodgers has completed 67.8 percent of his passes for 1,951 yards, 12 touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 101.4. There's a chance none of them will play.

A bump stock, sometimes called a "slide stock", modifies a semi-automatic rifle to fire faster and more easily than normal. Twelve of the guns recovered in Las Vegas in the suite hotel of Stephen Paddock were fitted with such a system.

And it speaks to a staggering difference in scoring differential.

The NFL showpiece event will take place in Minnesota this season and that may motivate Rodgers to produce his best form throughout the entire year. The Cowboys in their two wins have allowed 10 points per game. Prescott has struggled to handle the pressure and Green Bay needs to make sure he feels it again as it leads to some bad decisions and rushed passes. So Dallas must rely on their two strengths. However, the defense forced some early turnovers, giving Aaron Rodgers short fields.

And they should be fueled by two emotional factors.

The last time I predicted a Packers-Cowboys, it went pretty well. The Seahawks, who are underdogs to the Rams for the first time in six years, have QB Russell Wilson fully healthy but their pass protection and run blocking issues are heavy baggage to take into this matchup. The Cowboys, the more desperate team, will find a way. What also travels well is having a quarterback with the best arm, feet, and awareness on the planet.

Then middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee in the fourth preseason game, forcing the Cowboys to scrap the plan.
