Packers 2022 schedule release: Game-by-game, final record predictions
Week 10: Dallas Cowboys
In Week 10, Mike McCarthy makes his return to Lambeau Field. It’s like anything.
Plenty could be on the line here. The Packers and Dallas Cowboys will likely be favorites to win their divisions. Getting a victory in this game could make a huge difference for playoff seeding. The crucial head-to-head tiebreaker could come into play.
Of course, there is more to this game.
McCarthy had a great run as Packers head coach. He achieved something that hasn’t been done since, taking Green Bay to a Super Bowl victory in the 2010 season. McCarthy now aims to do it again with the Cowboys.
The Cowboys’ offense is up there with the best in the NFL, even after trading away Amari Cooper.
To find success in this game, the Packers’ front seven will need to generate pressure. It could be a long day if Dak Prescott has time to throw. Dallas’ receivers are too talented and will get open.
However, there are questions over the Cowboys’ defense. At home, the Packers should be able to move the ball and score points.
Whatever happens in this game, McCarthy deserves a good reception from the Packers’ fans after the great success he had in Green Bay.
Prediction: Green Bay 31, Dallas 27 (7-3)
