Packers Versus Cowboys Preview | Packers Should Win at Lambeau This Sunday | Ticket King

Packers versus Cowboys
This has been quite the season for the Packers. After starting out 6-0, they fell on hard times, losing four of their next five, and all four could be considered bad losses. They appeared to be headed for their fifth loss in six games on last Thursday, before an wild comeback which was capped off by “The miracle in the Motor City”, the 61-yard hail may from Aaron Rodgers to Richard Rodgers to win the game. Moving onto Sunday, the Packers will take on the Cowboys at Lambeau Field, who will be without Tony Romo.

Can Eddie Lacy get back on track? Eddie Lacy has had a nightmare of a 2015 season. Questions about his weight seem to be the focus. He has had some off the field issues as well, with the most recent being missing curfew the night before the Lions game, which was one of the reasons he played sparingly. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy did say he thinks Lacy is “rejuvenated” so we will see what means on Sunday. With the problems the passing game is having, they need Lacy, a big back built for cold weather, to return to form down the stretch.

Aaron Rodgers Needs Others to Step Up

Can Aaron Rodgers accept a lesser role down the stretch, beginning with this game? We understand this may seem strange, but the Packers are not going to win games down the stretch with Aaron Rodgers throwing for 375 yards and five touchdowns a game. The tight end and wide receivers, the key players that constitute his passing targets, are in shambles. If Lacy can return to form, this team is going to have to rely on his skills (along with Starks,) big time down the stretch. We can’t forget that every playoff winning team has to lean on their defense as well to win games. That means Aaron Rodgers is going to have to take a backseat for the remainder of the season and let everyone else do it for a change.

Can, someone, anyone, get some separation in the passing game, and hang onto the ball? As mentioned earlier, the Packers tight end and wide receiver units are a mess right now. There is nothing they can do about it for the remainder of the season, other than continue to roll out there what they have and hope for the best. This is no more prevalent than with Davante Adams. Up until last week against the Lions, Adams was the least effective receiver in the league according to the numbers. He did catch a touchdown pass, so maybe he can build on that, but that isn't much. Someone, anyone, has to get open and hang onto the ball.

Final Score: Despite their miracle win, the Packers still have the same offensive problems they had before that happened. Still, they win a muddy, wet game this Sunday 23-13.
