The Packers and Cowboys entered the season with high expectations, but midway through the year, it’s clear that these are two historic franchises headed in completely different directions.

Green Bay is coming off a brutal loss at the Lions in which Aaron Rodgers joined illustrious names such as Kyle Allen and Blake Bortles by throwing three interceptions inside the opponent's 25-yard line in a single game. The good news is the team plays at home this weekend. The bad news for cheeseheads is the offense will likely face no relief going against a hot Cowboys team.

Although most of the headlines this season have focused on Dallas' offense, namely Dak’s health, the bigger reality is who starts at quarterback probably doesn’t matter that much for Dallas if the defense stays this dominant.

The Cowboys are third in the league in average points allowed, a top-five team at defending the pass and they’re also amongst the top of the league in turnover margin. It’s difficult to pick against the Packers at home, but it seems likely that regardless of the final score, not many points will be scored. For this reason, the under is looking pretty enticing.
