On Deck will be here all season to provide you with everything you need to know (and a few things you don't) about every Cowboys game during the 2015 season.
The Opponent: The Packers are tied for first place in the NFC North, but they aren't playing all that great right now and needed a miraculous Hail Mary that was covered terribly to beat the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.
Past Meetings: Believe it or not, the Cowboys and Packers have played 32 times, including seven games in the postseason, and they've split right down the middle — winning 16 games each. Of course, the most recent meeting came back in January when the Packers won 26-21 at Lambeau Field in the NFC Divisional Round, thanks to the whole Dez no-catch call that has gone down in infamy. The Cowboys have four of the seven postseason meetings.
Who's Hot: The Cowboys have gotten tremendous play from Sean Lee since he returned from a concussion, and on Monday night, he was arguably the game's MVP. The veteran linebacker had 13 tackles and a sack and was literally all over the place and seemingly in the Redskins' playbook. Rolando McClain also had a good night with 10 tackles. Second-year defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence had two sacks. Dan Bailey did his best Dan Bailey and went 4-for-4 on field goals, including a 54-yarder to win the game in the closing seconds.
Tight end Richard Rodgers had eight catches for 146 yards and the game-winner on a Hail Mary and Devante Adams caught his first touchdown of the season.
Who's Not: Matt Cassel did one thing right on Monday, and that was not turning the ball over in the air. But he also missed a lot of wide-open looks at Dez Bryant. Darren McFadden had a big fumble but then redeemed himself with a touchdown late in the game to take a lead. Greg Hardy was once again basically non-existent with one tackle and one assist on his ledger with no sacks.
Eddie Lacy has basically been shunned as he had five carries for 4 yards on Thursday night, as Aaron Rodgers was the team's leading rusher with 27 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Rodgers continued his very average season, by his MVP standards, with another average game of throwing for 273 yards and two touchdowns with a pick. A lot of those yards (61) and one of the touchdowns came on the worst-covered Hail Mary in the history of football.
