Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers - 10/8/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers - 10/8/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

With the myriad of injuries at the tackle position in the first quarter of the Packers' season, McCarthy has been forced to keep guys like Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks and Ty Montgomery in to help pass block just to keep Aaron Rodgers upright. Daniels got hurt early on in Week 2 and hasn't played since.

The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys engaged in a playoff shootout in January that will remain in the memory of both teams' fans for quite some time. Despite the pain, Montgomery won't rule himself out of the Cowboy game. We understand that they lost a tough game Sunday there against the Rams. Dez Bryant led the team with 5 catches for 98 yards, while the aforementioned Elliott caught 4 balls for 54 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys will go on the road for their next two games, as they are in San Francisco, and then heading out to Washington to take on the Redskins. It would be the Packers fourth of the season. Their O/U trends are now 5-0 in their last 5 games on the road, 9-1 in their last 10 games vs. NFC, and 14-3 in their last 17 games overall.

In order to win this game, the number one priority for Green Bay will be to lessen Elliot's impact on the game.

The Green Bay Packers will again host the popular Halloween-themed event Spooktacular this Saturday, Oct. 7, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. The Cowboys' defense will most likely find it hard to hold Rodgers too if they're allowing 257 yards per game. Last year, Adams suffered a concussion against the Cowboys on October 16 but was cleared in time for the team's game against the Bears four days later.

Nearly anyone who understands the game of football knows that the most impactful positions on an NFL defense are edge pass rushers and cornerbacks. These two teams are projected to be a couple of the best teams in the NFC. "Getting out there and being limited today, which is really good". Green Bay's defense combined for a sack, a pair of interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles, all while holding the Bears to 308 yards of total offense in the win. Look for this primetime game to be a high scoring game.

In 2016, Lee played in every meaningful game of the season for the Cowboys (sitting out the regular season finale), and by no coincidence, the Cowboys had their best defensive season in nearly a decade, finishing first in rushing defense and fifth in scoring defense.
