Will injuries come back to haunt the Packers?

The Green Bay Packers have started the year off with a bang, going 3-1 heading into a big matchup next week against the Dallas Cowboys. Both teams look to win a game which could show us a playoff matchup for this upcoming playoff season with the way both teams are playing. While the packers will look to top the boys in blue, they will be more than likely missing many key pieces on both sides of the ball. The packers have seen many key players go down recently; including the likes of Davante Adams, Bryan Bulaga, and Davon House. Those players are just the beginning of many critical green bay players who are missing time at the moment. The real question for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers is will they be able to be another super bowl contender in the Dallas cowboys while missing many key assets on both offense and defense. The loss of both starting tackles proved to be a huge factor in the week two loss against the Atlanta Falcons, and with the packers facing another daunting defender in Tank Lawrence, will history repeat itself or will the packers come out on top? It will be interesting to watch next Sunday as gunslinger Aaron Rodgers will look to carry the load for his team against a cowboys team still looking to find its rhythm on offense. My prediction for the Game next Sunday goes 28-24 Green Bay, as I just see Aaron Rodgers outgunning and outsmarting a still very young cowboys defense while Dak not being enough of an X factor for the cowboys to lead them to victory.
