Cowboys hosting the Packers on NFL Week 5 Betting

Watch Aaron Jones earn his first Lambeau Leap (Video)

The Cowboys are opening 2.5-point favourites at Sports Interaction. Aaron Jones is the better bet for carries if Montgomery sits. Green Bay is banged up, and may have a tough time here.

Can the Cowboys defense rebound? However, the Packers have won six of their last seven games against Dallas, and they've covered the spread in five of those games. From a fantasy football standpoint, this should be a big contest for the Cowboys who will need to outscore legendary quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. He's projected for 7.2 touches, 36.4 yards and 0.21 touchdowns against the Cowboys. But they failed to really exert their will and let the Rams back into the game, particularly by allowing Todd Gurley, arguably the MVP four weeks into the season, to do what he does best. We will see what happens and hopefully we can get everybody back. The Packers were 14-2 in the season's second quarter from 2011-14.

All that said. Dallas should cause some problems for the Packers.

Will the Packers be healthy? Green Bay's lone loss was in Atlanta against the defending NFC Champion Falcons.

Dallas linebacker Anthony Hitchens practiced fully for the first time this season coming off a knee injury on the same day Charles Tapper broke a foot, likely the start of a lengthy absence for the defensive end.

"Once he gets to that second level it's hard to take down a running back like that", said Packers defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois.

Receiver Davante Adams was listed as questionable. Montgomery sustained multiple broken ribs in last week's game against the Bears.

Adams was a surprise listing as limited at practice and the biggest headline there, but there are other players who are more important for this particular matchup.

On defense, Mike Daniels was moving spryly at practice and should be back and Davon House is finally past his quad injury and he'll return. The Packers lost to the Cowboys in Lambeau Field a year ago in a game in which rookies Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott completely dominated the Packers.

Growing up in the state of Mississippi, Favre didn't have a home-state team to support, so instead, he followed America's team and dreamt of wearing the famous star on his helmet. The goal this week is to stop the run and make Aaron Rodgers throw from within the pocket.

"That play, it was just good execution by (left guard and Arlington Martin product Lane Taylor) getting out front and blocking Justin (Durant) and then guys just continuing to come from the backside, and obviously Jared made a fantastic catch on the sideline", Rodgers said.

"We're going to have to make some changes in society, hopefully quickly, because there's too many situations like this where we send our thoughts and prayers to these victims, and unfortunately [it] keeps happening and [we] stand up here and talk about it some more", Rodgers said.
