Packers Cowboys Renew a Lasting Rivalry

Jason KramerContributor ISeptember 20, 2008

Week three of the National Football League season and it brings us only one match up between unbeatens, as the Dallas Cowboys head up to the Frozen Tundra to take on the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay went into Dallas as the youngest team in the NFL last year and played well under the command of young quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers filled in when living legend Brett Favre went out earlier in the game with an injury. Rodgers threw for 18 for 22 for 201 yards and one touchdown to receiver Greg Jennings. The Cowboys defense did get to Rodgers three times last year. 

This year Rodgers has the 5th best passer rating going into week three and has the same amount of touchdowns as the high profile Dallas quarterback, Tony Romo, with four. Rodgers has protected the ball better than Romo this season so far as Romo has thrown 2 interceptions and Rodgers has not yet to throw a pass to the wrong team.

Going into the game on week three I believe the Packers have the edge against the Cowboys to improve to three and zero. This should be a very evenly matched game with not much defense coming on either side of the ball. I believe each quarterback will go over 300 yards passing and have a multi-touchdown game.
