This week the Cowboys look to bounce back from a tough road loss to the Chicago Bears with another game against an NFC North foe. Silver Star Nation's Mickey Spagnola has the keys to a Cowboys win over the Green Bay Packers.

The first key is for the Cowboys to keep on scoring. In their six home games this season, the Cowboys are averaging 34 points a game. That's with a high of 48 against Denver, and a low of 27 against Minnesota. They need to keep scoring thirty-something, especially with their struggling defense.

Speaking of the defense, the second key is to get pressure on the quarterback. Especially against the Packers now that Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out for the game. Back-up quarterback Matt Flynn will get the start. You don't want a back-up to get comfortable in the pocket or say a Josh McCown might just throw for 348 against you.

The third key is for the Cowboys to do a better job of picking up and beating opposing blitzes. They must give Tony Romo time in the pocket. He's been sacked 14 times in the last five games.

The Cowboys and Packers will get underway at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
