Cowboys vs. Packers preview:

The 4-1 Cowboys enter the contest after dominating Cincinnati 28-14 last week while the 3-1 Packers are fresh off of a 23-16 win against the New York Giants..

Aaron Rodgers went 23-for-45 through the air for Green Bay last week for 259 yards and two touchdowns. He also let the Giants hang around as he threw two interceptions. Eddie Lacy averaged 7.4 yards per rush against the Giants with 81 yards on 11 carries. Davante Adams and Jordy Nelson each hauled in a touchdown grab each.

Dak Prescott kept being Dak Prescott against the Bengals. The rookie quarterback went 18-for-24 through the air for one touchdown and 227 yards. The former Mississippi State standout had a rushing touchdown as well. Ezekiel Elliott was absolutely stellar as he ran for 134 yards on just 15 carries for an average of 8.9 yards per rush to go along with two scores. His longest run of the game was 60 yards.

The Cowboys hold a 12-14 record all-time against the Packers in their 26 regular season meetings. The Cowboys are 4-3 against the Packers in the playoffs.

Cowboys vs. Packers prediction:

This may just be the game of the week and it should live up to those expectations. Rodgers showed that he is human last week against the Giants but still managed to grab the win.

Prescott has looked more than human all season and will need to continue to do so, and the same goes for Elliott. Green Bay has the best rush defense in the NFL, which could make Prescott do more through the air and in the run-option game.

With that, the Packers win a close one at home.
