APC NFL Picks, Week 5: Packers-Cowboys is too close to call

New, comments

APC is split almost evenly on the result of this week’s game.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Week four was a weird one across the NFL. Several stunning upsets rocked the league, and in particular Acme Packing Company’s picks for the week. It was so bad that only three APC contributors finished over .500 on the week, and none did better than 8-7.

Here’s hoping for better luck for most of week five’s games. On this first Sunday of October, the Green Bay Packers get one of the best matchups of the week, being featured on national television in the late afternoon time slot. Their trip to Dallas to play the Cowboys is rightfully a terrific matchup and should draw eyes from all over the country.

Green Bay is a 3.5-point underdog this week, but that doesn’t stop many of APC’s contributors from picking them to win. Ultimately, it’s nearly an even split, but as of publication there are seven writers going with the Packers to six predicting a Cowboys victory. Considering the fact that the last two games between these two teams have each been decided with less then 15 seconds left, it should be no surprise that we are expecting a close, tightly competitive game.

Will Matt LaFleur’s team indeed rise up and improve to 4-1 on the season with a win in Big D? Tune in on Sunday to find out.
