Things To Watch: 1. OMG. Cowboys’ pass rushers have 20 sacks including five from LB Ware. They have to be licking their chops as the Packers embark on another changeup on their offensive line.  Rookie Lang will start at RT replacing Tauscher. With the Packers’ porous pass protection, QB Rodgers needs to quicken release. 2. Packers’ linebacker depth will be tested. The Packers are down to players who have seen almost no playing time on defense. Rookie Jones is the starter at the LOLB. Jones is a natural OLB in the 3-4 but is unheralded.
