Bookmakers had both these teams as Superbowl favourites before the season began and nobody could've foreseen the demise of the Cowboys this year. Dallas struggled early this season and in their penultimate game lost quarterback Tony Romo for the season which has ruined yet another season for the big spending Cowboys and questions must be asked regarding the future of manager Wade Phillips. The Cowboys got a battering at the hands of the lowly Jaguars at home last weekend in the new 1.3 billion (yes, BILLION) dollar Cowboys stadium. Without Tony Romo they have the veteran John Kitna controlling the offence which will be tough as they haven't got any kind of running game to fall back on. This means Kitna will have to pass the ball a lot to win games which will lead to turnovers, especially with the Packers formidable pass rush, most notably fresh again Clay Matthews who has 9 sacks already this season. Green Bay boasts a defence which only gives up an average of 17 points per games and has 12 interceptions this year which should restrict the Cowboys and their shaky offence. The Pack come off a great win at the superbowl favourite Jets last week, beating them 9-0 and this promises to kick start their season with a convincing victory against the Cowboys who may end up only winning a handful of games this season. The Packers beat a much better Cowboys team 17-7 in the last campaign at home and this could be a blowout win for the Pack. Take the Packers -7 points at Ladbrokes at 10/11.
