Takeaways from the Green Bay Packers loss to Dallas

He also had two fumbles against the Packers yesterday afternoon, but fortunately the Aaron Rodgers led offense was unable to really capitalize on those turnovers. In the entirety of the 2015 season, they had 14.

This is a lot of points to lay in a Thursday night game where the games are often sloppy and the players look like they don't want to be playing on short rest. Green Bay wore its regular gold trousers that day. This game will be televised on CBS and NFL Network at 7:25 P.M Central time.

Lacy was the only active halfback for the Packers in their 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

After giving up only 171 rushing yards in the first four games, the Packers gave up 191 yards Sunday, including 157 to rookie Ezekiel Elliott, the NFL's leading rusher. The secondary is somehow managing to keep the big plays at a minimum.

BOO BIRDS: Even Rodgers wasn't immune from the uncharacteristic boos from Packers fans at times directed at the struggling offense. The Packers have the injury bug.

With backup running back James Starks out with a knee injury, Montgomery ended up taking three carries in the backfield as well, gaining 6 yards. With Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams (barring he is sidelined still after clearing concussion protocol), there is no doubt that the Packers have the potential for some sizable offensive performances. In their first five games, Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 60.2, and is averaging just 6.5 yards per pass. Running back Eddie Lacy will run for 50 yards.

It's one of the oldest rivalries in sports history; the Bears and Packers will go at it once again this Thursday night at Lambeau Field.

The Cowboys haven't reached the Super Bowl in 21 years when they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers to win their third championship in four seasons. The Bears are looking to turn around their season with a big win against the Packers.

The Packers the last couple weeks have started using more personnel packages after relying primarily on a three-wide receiver set. They will need find a way to get into the end zone instead of settling for field goals. We haven't turned the ball over like that in a while. "I'm making great progress and hope to come back in (eight) week and play this season". "It's tough. It's the life of an National Football League player, people get hurt, quick turnarounds, especially this Thursday night game that nobody likes to play in, but you've got to do it".

Prescott throws his first interception in Green Bay. 9 in passing yards per game (ranked 25th).

Chicago's defense is poor and Green Bay needs to get back on track here with a solid win at home. According to reports, the Packers sent a draft pick back to the Chiefs, but the official parameters of the trade have not been announced.
