Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers Week 6 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Dallas Cowboys (4-1) at (-4) Green Bay Packers (3-1), Sunday, 4:25 p.m.
Mike: Packers. The Cowboys are riding high thanks to a dominant run game, but they’ll get a stiff test against a Packers defense allowing 2 yards per rush — half of what 18 other teams are allowing per rush. The Cowboys’ pass rush won’t scare Aaron Rodgers, either.
Ricky: Cowboys. There’s still something a little off about the Packers’ offense, and the Cowboys are 4-0-1 against the spread this season. This smells like an upset, but a cover at the very least. Bigger picture question: How do the ‘Boys go back to Tony Romo if Dak Prescott continues his great rookie season with a victory at Lambeau Field?
Andre: Cowboys. How do you beat Aaron Rodgers? Keep the ball out of his hands. The Cowboys are second in time of possession., first in 10-play drives and 5-minute drives. On the other side, 27 percent of Packers drives have ended in three-and-outs (fourth-highest). The Cowboys might literally have the ball for more than 40 minutes this week.
