The Green Bay Packers are set to face off against the Dallas Cowboys this weekend in NFL Week 6 action. Both teams are looking like serious contenders in the NFC and this week could have serious playoff implications on the line.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are coming off of a big Sunday Night Football victory over the New York Giants. They are 3-1 on the season, and there is no question that Green Bay is a serious contender in the NFC. Many believe that they will win this week’s game with the Cowboys, but they will have to play up to their on-paper potential in order to do so.
Dak Prescott has taken the NFL by storm with Tony Romo out due to injury. He has put up big numbers and has led the Cowboys to a 4-1 record. No one gave them a chance to get to this point, but the rookie quarterback has given Dallas hopes of another postseason appearance.

It should be an interesting game, with neither team blowing the other out. Green Bay does, however, have the advantage of playing at Lambeau Field.
All of that being said, what bold predictions can be made for the Packers vs. Cowboys game this week?
Aaron Rodgers Throws for 300 Yards, Four Touchdowns
If the Packers are going to move to 4-1 on the season, they will need their superstar quarterback to put up a big game. Dallas doesn’t have a great secondary, which will lead to a big performance from Aaron Rodgers. He knows that his team is relying on him and will follow through with a big game.
Dak Prescott Continues His Impressive Play
No one could have expected the success that Dak Prescott has had throughout his first five NFL starts. He has begun the debate about whether the Cowboys should continue starting him even when Tony Romo comes back. Prescott will continue his impressive play this week against the Packers and will give his team a good chance to come out with a win.
Green Bay’s Defense Will Force at Least Three Turnovers
Green Bay’s defense is going to be a huge key to defeating the Cowboys. They will come through in a big way by forcing three turnovers. Whether they force Prescott’s first interception or do their damage by forcing fumbles, the Packers will force three turnovers throughout the course of the game.
Dak Prescott Will Throw His First Career Interception
Even though Dak Prescott will have another big game, he will throw his first career interception. His interception won’t determine the outcome of the game. Prescott has been almost perfect throughout his first five starts, but the Packers will find a way to pick him off once this week.
The Green Bay Packers Will Pull Out a Huge Victory
At the end of the day, the Packers are the better all-around team. Dallas has been playing impressive football, but Green Bay will pull out a huge victory at Lambeau Field. It will be a close game all the way through, but the Packers will make the necessary plays down the stretch.
Expect to see Dallas hang around until the last few drives of the game. Rodgers and Prescott will have a good battle, but the Packers will move to 4-1 on the season, while the Cowboys will drop to 4-2. It will be an intriguing game, to say the least, and one that you won’t want to miss.
