Now a lot has changed for the Packers since that week 6 meeting. The Packers turned the ball over 4 times, and that is something we haven’t done in quite some time. Aaron Rodgers has’t fumbled the ball since week 13 against the Texans, and hasn’t thrown an interception since week 10 against the Titans. Rodgers is playing red hot right now and looks to be unstoppable. Over the past 8 games Aaron Rodgers has 22 touchdowns and ZERO interceptions! That’s GOD MODE! The one point in the Cowboys game is their inability to create turnovers. Going into the post season the Dallas Cowboys are ranked 27th in the league for interceptions with just 9. They also struggle getting to the quarterback, ranked 13th in the league with only 36 sacks all season. Our offensive line is playing great in pass protection, Rodgers has only been sacked 11 times over the past 6 games. Let’s dive a bit deeper on the match ups…

I think we (GB) match up well against the Dallas Cowboys. If we can stuff Ezekiel Elliott even a little bit, I don’t think Dak Prescott is capable of putting up the type of yards and points needed to keep up with our high powered offense. I think Packers win this 34-27Follow us!
