Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

Green Bay Packers vs Dallas Cowboys odds: NFL Week 5 schedule, point spread, prediction and preview

Green Bay, which is 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS, is thin in the backfield since RB Ty Montgomery (ribs) is listed as doubtful, which could affect their ability to take advantage of Dallas' suspect rush defense. This is a unsafe team, but one that has battled injuries early in the season.

Aaron Rodgers VS Dallas Cowboys secondary: The Cowboys secondary has been fairly porous all season long and that is because of the array of injuries this team has run into. Elliott added four catches for 54 yards and a touchdown. Nelson is a threat all over the field. Second round pick, Chidobe Awuzie will need to step up and play a bigger role as he returns from injury. However, his leading receiver, Devante Adams, is dealing with a nasty concussion and may not play on Sunday. However, as Werder states, if one game had played out differently, he might have been able to live that dream.

Speaking Tuesday, Packers RB Jamaal Williams (knee) said he's "good" and believes he can play Week 5 against the Cowboys. Last year, the Cowboys outscored their opponents by 115 points, third-best in the National Football League, behind only the two Super Bowl clubs (Patriots, Falcons). The Cowboys have 2016 All-Pro linemen at multiple positions including former Wisconsin center Travis Frederick, former Alabama tackle Tyron Smith and former Notre Dame guard Zack Martin.

From the Packers' perspective, this is an opportunity to get their first road win of 2017 after the loss in Atlanta's new stadium three weeks ago.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told our sister station in Green Bay on Wednesday that he has friends who were at the concert in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire at the crowd.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing is beating the Cowboys", McCarthy said Thursday. His ability to pick up yardage in the running game as well as the passing game makes this offense extremely hard to stop. He was just shy of a best-ever statistical season but Packers fans will be very happy with his start to the current campaign. It will likely fall to Kevin King and Davon House to keep Bryant in check.

The Packers travel to Arlington for another contest against the Dallas Cowboys, the latest shootout between two the NFL's biggest powerhouse franchises.

The Cowboys should look to run Elliott into the ground on Sunday as the Packers have given up five touchdowns to opposing running backs this season. Both were plagued by hamstring issues in training camp, with Lewis missing the opener and Awuzie the past two games after aggravating his injury.

The Cowboys and Packers have met 35 times since 1960 and eight of those games have been in the playoffs. The Cowboys (2-2) shocked the football world previous year, with their breakout rookie tandem of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, going 13-3 in 2016. "There's been some additions to the team that have really helped with that locker-room culture that I was - and I think a number of other leaders were - anxious about after losing so many great leaders from last year's squad", Rodgers said. But I hope this prediction ends up being wrong. The Packers looked unbelievable last game and are poised to build on their two-game winning streak.
