This victory came at a price though, as some key players suffered injuries. "You've got to go back and see who they are right now, who's playing for them and what they're doing with those guys".
The rematch came with much higher stakes in January when Dallas, the number one seed in the NFC playoffs, were swept aside by the "run the table" Packers in the unforgetable 34-31 thriller.
The Cowboys offense is still struggling to find its identity and their passing game isn't where it needs to be.
"We understand that they lost a tough game Sunday there against the Rams", said McCarthy.
"I do think what happens in the National Football League is there is turnover with personnel and there is evolution in scheme in all three phases of your team so you've got to be careful about saying, 'We know these guys, '" coach Jason Garrett said.
Of course this isn't the end of the world but because they couldn't handle their business, there's a chance the Cowboys could be down three games in the win column behind Philadelphia (3-1) by the time they return to action in Week 7. The Cowboys also exhibited some offense, specifically when they charged back into the game from down 28-3. His completion percentage has gone from 67.8 to 60.3; his average yards per throw from 8.0 to 6.6; his touchdown/interception ratio from 23/4 to 8/3; his passer rating from 104.9 to 90.1. If this season's matchup is anything like the last one, you should grab your popcorn and enjoy it. Watch to see how often Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers uses the base defense versus his "Nitro" package to slow down the run game. The second year QB isn't making the same plays of a season ago and that perhaps comes from defenses determined to make him beat them with his arm. The team who wins this battle, could be in the driver's seat to win the game. Green Bay is being buoyed by Rodgers with the hope of them getting healthy as the season moves along and becoming really unsafe. A year later, his first season as the Packers' starter, his team fell at Lambeau Field, 27-16.
This could be a bounce back week for Dallas WR Dez Bryant. In Week 1 Dallas got all over Eli Manning as well. The fourth-year middle linebacker returned to practice last week.
Green Bay is undefeated at AT&T Stadium.
"It's been a very productive week". Witten is 2nd on the team in receiving yards with 168 and tied for the lead in TD receptions with two. This is a risky team, but one that has battled injuries early in the season. The bad news? Aaron Rodgers is playing. The team has been without perhaps the game's best tackle tandem for weeks now - forced to start left guard Lane Taylor and sixth-string lineman Justin McCray after the position was decimated with injuries.
This time, Adams is coming off a long week - but he suffered a vicious hit Thursday from Danny Trevathan that resulted in a two-game suspension for the Bears linebacker.
Rodgers has more confidence as a veteran in this series than second-year counterpart Dak Prescott of the Cowboys, and that will be key again. Green Bay has won six of the last seven games between the two teams, including five straight from November, 2009 to December, 2015.
"That playoff game was a great win for the Packers and Aaron Rodgers was magnificent, but it's in the past", said Mike Ditka, former Chicago Bears and Dallas tight end.
