Green Bay is red hot riding a seven-game winning streak. The Packers are averaging 31.9 points per game during their winning streak. The Giants were one of the best defenses all season but Green Bay still dropped 38 points on them. The Cowboys enter the game well rested but lost two of their last four games. The Cowboys tied for the NFL’s best home record at (7-1) while the Packers were (4-4) on the road. Dallas (+115) ranks 3rd in point differential while Green Bay (+44) is 8th. Dallas beat the Packers 30-16 earlier this season at Lambeau Field. Unlike the defensively minded Giants, Dallas can score at the same rate as the Packers. I think this will be a high-scoring game with two of the NFL’s top five offenses going head to head. If the Cowboys can control the clock with the running ability of Ezekiel Elliott, they should be able to keep the explosive Green Bay offense off the field. The Cowboys are the more balanced team on both sides of the ball and should win this one at home.
