It's possible the Packers are going to shield him from the hitting involved in Thursday's practice, but that wouldn't explain why he wasn't available for individual drills before the contact periods.

This is the best fantasy football matchup he has had all season and in such a big game for the Cowboys, you have to believe he will play a larger role than he typically does. Additionally, the 35 points scored by L.A. mark the second-highest total (again with that Denver game) surrendered by the Cowboys since Week 3 of the 2015 season, when the Falcons scored 39. It's the second time the Pack are underdogs thus far in 2017 as they were +3 in Week 2 in Atlanta and lost 34-23.

They are a long way from clinching a playoff berth, which would tie the all-time National Football League record with 9 consecutive appearances, but early this season they've survived a slew of injuries that would have slain many teams' chances to win.

That meant it was time for rookie running back #Aaron Jones to step up to the plate. The Cowboys' defense will most likely find it hard to hold Rodgers too if they're allowing 257 yards per game.

The Chicago Bears took on the Green Bay Packers lastThursday night with full momentum on their side after a thrilling overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. When then-Packers players would whine to Woodson about the disparity in venues, he would emphasize their ability to alter it in the regular season.

Offensively, the Packers are averaging 25.5 points and 335.2 total yards (260.8 in passing and 74.5 in rushing) per game. He's mostly known for being the Green Bay Packers quarterback that took them to two Super Bowls, leading the Packers to a 35-21 victory over New England in Super Bowl 31 in the 1996 season. Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of 26 passes for 179 yards. The quarterback has tossed for more than 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns. Got a great feel for the game.

Pass rusher David Irving is ready after serving a four-game suspension, two weeks removed from fellow defensive lineman Damontre Moore rejoining the team following a two-game ban. The Cowboys are going to want to get back on track, as losing two straight at home certainly would not be a good start. The Green Bay icon spoke about this dream to Ed Werder and Matt Mosley on the Doomsday Podcast.

The Rams and Denver Broncos were able to beat the Cowboys by dominating the ground game.

It may seem rather simple and easier said than done, but the Packers can't afford to fall behind by more than a score in this game.

The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers have built on their rivalry in the past few seasons, specifically with the Dez Bryant catch/no catch debate, and last season's intense playoff game.
