The winner of this game will take over the driver’s seat in the race for a playoff bye. Six NFC teams, including the Packers and Cowboys, entered Week 5 with a 3-1 record, tied for second behind the 49ers - whose 3-0 start is probably a mirage. The Seahawks already knocked the Rams down to 3-2. One of these teams will also fall off, and lose a valuable tiebreaker in the process.

The Packers’ defense has looked great so far, but their schedule has done them a lot of favors - the Bears’ and Broncos’ offenses are in shambles, and the Vikings are having difficulty identifying their Pro-Bowler WRs. On the other hand, those teams all have good-to-great defenses, and the Packers have maintained an average offense despite the schedule, injuries, and some coaching miscues.

The Cowboys would probably be favored by a lot more than 3.5 if they hadn’t looked so anemic against the Saints in Week 4. They were third in total yards and second in yards per play over the first three weeks, but managed just 257 yards and 10 points in Week 4. The Packers’ defense may not be as good as it’s number imply, but they’re probably better than the Saints.
