Three bold predictions in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys.
When the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys meet, it’s usually an entertaining contest. This rivalry has had many memorable moments in recent years, and the Packers have, for the most part, come out on top, winning seven of their past eight games against the Cowboys.
Their one defeat was a convincing one back in 2016. Ezekiel Elliott put up 157 yards on the ground, while Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes as the Cowboys won big at Lambeau Field. But, even then, the Packers had the last laugh by eliminating the Cowboys in the divisional round later in the season.
Outside of the controversial catch or non-catch Dez Bryant made in the 2014 playoffs at Lambeau Field, the majority of the memorable moments over the past decade have taken place at AT&T Stadium. This includes a game that Aaron Rodgers didn’t even play in.
How about the classic comeback win for the Packers in 2013? Down 26-3 at halftime, Green Bay had no chance. But Matt Flynn had other ideas, leading the Packers to an incredible 37-36 victory to keep their season alive.
The Packers’ past two visits to AT&T Stadium have ended in last-second victories — a Mason Crosby field goal in early 2017 to send the Packers to the NFC Championship Game, and a Davante Adams game-winning touchdown just months later.
But despite the Packers’ recent dominance in the win-loss column, games between these two teams are often close and exciting. And never over until the very end. Sunday’s meeting should be another interesting one.
Here are three bold predictions for the Packers.
