Packers: Rookie running back Aaron Jones quickly impressed Aaron Rodgers

However, Dallas watched their Super Bowl dreams quickly disappear after Green Bay knocked them out of the postseason with a thrilling last-second field goal by Mason Crosby in the fourth quarter to win it.

The Packers are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Cowboys.

The Dallas Cowboys are 2-2 on the season, and coming off a loss.

The Packers are a team that the Cowboys are very familiar with. The NFC Championship loss following the 1995 season was big, though. If the Dallas Cowboys win on Sunday, Dez will take advantage of his matchup and have his first 100 yard game of the season.

On paper, both of these teams are pretty unsafe but the Cowboys seem to get the better of the matchups this week. Green Bay is averaging 25.5 points and 361 yards per game on offense this year, but injuries to the line and in the backfield have made them one dimensional again. However, as Werder states, if one game had played out differently, he might have been able to live that dream.

In his past four games against the Cowboys, Rodgers has thrown for 1,183 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Once he got the call, though, he delivered with a 2-yard touchdown run. 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. Defensively, Green Bay is allowing 20.3 points and 321 yards per game.

Palestine cabinet pledges to end split with Hamas
He also withheld salaries for Gaza civil servants. "Everything must be in the hands of the Palestinian Authority (PA)", he added. The rift has left the Palestinians divided between rival governments in territories located on opposite sides of Israel.

Hopefully a visit from the Chicago Bears was just what Aaron Rodgers and the Packers needed to jumpstart their season. Dak will also have to keep an eye out for the Packers best pass rusher, Mike Daniels who seems to be suiting up on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers liked Aaron Jones right away. The quarterback has tossed for more than 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns. Between the inability of the receivers to create separation and questionable play calling that has disabled the run game from finding a groove, the offense has bigger issues than Dak's play. This year, it is the defense that features highly regarded draft picks taking their time to get things going, and as things come together for the Cowboys to play complimentary football the wins will follow. These two teams are projected to be a couple of the best teams in the NFC.

Aside from the injuries, the theme of this early season for the Packers has been getting off to a good start.

Will this be the week when Green Bay's two starting offensive tackles, David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga, finally return to the lineup?

Jason Garrett's club is heading into their bye week after this game and they'll be highly motivated to spend the time off above.500.

Irving really came onto the scene past year in the Cowboys 30-16 win against the Packers when he was named NFC defensive player of the week for his one sack, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one pass deflection performance.
