And, oddly enough, it started in New York City. No one in the front seven has played more than Smith's 227 snaps.

To the naked eye too, it's Green Bay who've been looking the better. Both clubs flourished while the Giants sunk into a 20-year funk.

FRISCO, Texas - Last January, the Dallas Cowboys walked out of AT&T Stadium cursing Aaron Rodgers and his incredible third-down throw that set up the Green Bay Packers' winning field goal in the final seconds.

Interestingly, last week the Cowboys were playing another team coming off a Thursday night/mini bye, and the Rams came back from an early double-digit deficit to chalk up a huge road win. On offense, Dallas is putting up 23.5 points and 349.5 yards per game. "They knocked us out of the playoffs a year ago, so I mean we're going back, I wouldn't necessarily say for revenge, but to go get a win, to go show them what we're capable of doing".

Elliott is only averaging 3.6 yards per carry, which is a big reason why the Cowboys are only 2-2. Most fans just focus on their team and the injuries their team is dealing with.

Injuries are mounting for the Packers, but Aaron Rodgers is keeping them on the straight and narrow while the doctors do their work. If Bryant underachieves once more, I cannot see how the Cowboys can win this contest.

Aaron Rodgers, if his veteran bookend tackles are back and he's given time, should shred the Dallas rebuilt secondary.

Dak Prescott came into this season after a breakout rookie season and has continued to play at a high level this year.

Lambeau Field regulars will have everything crossed for an injury-free year for Rodgers and his corps of offensive weapons.

If the Cowboys had the identical offensive line, of course.

"Once he gets to that second level it's hard to take down a running back like that", said Packers defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois. "There's been some additions to the team that have really helped with that locker-room culture that I was - and I think a number of other leaders were - anxious about after losing so many great leaders from last year's squad", Rodgers said. He battled back problems last year and in camp this year.

They might need it more to forget what happened the past two times these teams met in the playoffs.

He broke his ribs in Week Four and is wearing extra protection around them however he has already conceded that he will not put his long-term health in jeopardy to play this week.

And it speaks to a staggering difference in scoring differential. "I feel like if I had a better mindset when I was in Dallas, I probably would have been better off", Bennett said of his four years with the Cowboys, who selected him in the second round of the 2008 National Football League draft as a 21-year-old junior out of Texas A&M. The Steelers and QB Ben Roethlisberger are 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 home games as a favorite of at least seven points.

In two games against the Cowboys, Green Bay has yet to find a way to stop Dak Prescott. So Dallas must rely on their two strengths. "He's elite, and then the jump ball". Dez Bryant caught five passes for 98 yards.

And they should be fueled by two emotional factors. The Packers are starting to get healthy on both sides of the ball, and their passing defense has thrived when stifling the run, which bodes well for them based on Dallas' step-back on the ground thus far.
