Packers, Mike Daniels, Football discussed on Sports Central with Greg Matzek


Packers have been saddled against the past so far this season ranking bitterly giving up one hundred eighty eight point five yards but sixty two point sixty two percent completions and opponents passer reading of ninety one point two getting defensive tackle mike daniels their best player a backup front will help both against the run and should improve the pass rushers well we expect daniels to play this week the reason some of these numbers are good is because the packers ball control offenses left the defense on the field for just two hundred and thirty place in four games to cease opponents of called one hundred and five running place a hundred and twentyfive past boys against the packers defense they've been more effective running the football but nonetheless getting daniels back i think will solidify that packers will ground defense while the dallas offense is struggling to third downs a season the packers defense ranked seventh in that category allowing their opponents can for just thirty six point two percent of their third down opportunities or the big matchups in the game obviously as eke you'll elliott against the packers run defense zeeks numbers are off the season compared to his leagueleading rushing totals of last year today he's ninth in the nfl rushing two hundred seventy seven yards just a three point six yard average with along gained thirty yards into touchdowns last year he averaged one hundred eight point seven rushing yards per game this season sixty nine point three last week against the ramsay produced eighty five yards rushing with a touchdown of fifty four yards receiving on forecasters he's much more part of the passing attack this year that he was a season ago and is explosive in space so the packers have to be a where that dimension to the cowboys attack it really wasn't the case last year elliott had just thirty to pass receptions all of last season and again his numbers are off primarily because he had a game in denver against the top notch denver run defense were hit eight yards on.
