Why will the Packers offense find success where the loaded Cowboys couldn't: Davante Adams
To some fans, the 49ers are the Packers boogeyman waiting just around the corner to spoil a magical season. Davante Adams though, he’s truly the one who knocks. In the Kyle Shanahan era, he’s been a killer for even the most vaunted San Francisco defenses and he gives Aaron Rodgers and Co. the chance to succeed where the Cowboys failed. Green Bay already set the blueprint and the 49ers showed no evidence they can stop him.
In the last five games, including playoffs, for the Packers against the 49ers, Davante Adams has 48 catches for 618 yards and 6 touchdowns. He’s scored in all five matchups and gone over 100 yards in four of the five even with Richard Sherman out there, but more on him later.
Dallas couldn’t exploit a relatively weak 49ers secondary, a team coming into the playoffs 31st in DVOA defending No. 1 WRs, because they couldn’t make throws outside the numbers, and couldn’t protect Dak Prescott. The San Francisco corners squatted on static stop routes and stale concepts, but the Packers don’t play that way.
