What To Look For: Another game that was supposed to be full of hype and help determine home field advantage for the playoffs.

Instead, we’re going to find out just how bad Green Bay can beat Dallas at home.

The Cowboys are hurting, despite having an All-Star team on its roster. QB Tony Romo is out with a shoulder injury and the rest of the team just can’t seem to click. Stupid penalties. Poor play calling. Unlucky breaks. You name it and it’s happened to Dallas this season.

Green Bay is looking to build on a big road victory last week and win its third in a row.

Problems have been a total Dallas thing. Green Bay knows what adversity is, the difference is they’ve been able to fight through it.

Green Bay went on a small slide, losing thre times in a four-week span. But they have since won back-to-back games, including a 9-0 win at the Jets last weekend, which surprised more than a few people.

Dallas has allowed an average of 33.5 points during its four-game losing streak. The Cowboys, off to their worst start since going 1-15 in 1989, haven’t dropped five in a row since finishing 6-10 in ‘97.

Backup QB Jon Kitna was decent against the Jaguars in his first start since 2008, going 34 of 49 for 379 yards with a touchdown. He threw three interceptions, but all three balls bounced off the hands of receivers. Typical for the Cowboys season.

It could get worse, though, as they head to Lambeau to play against a Green Bay team which is fourth in scoring defense at 17 points a game and registered the NFL’s first shutout of the year last weekend.

The Pack will be without WR Donald Driver, who is second on the team in receptions (28), receiving yards (307) and receiving TDs (three). No. 1 target Greg Jennings will be alive and well and looking to batter the Dallas defense. Jennings has caught 18 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns in the last three games.

Payton’s Pick: Green Bay 35, Dallas 20
