Packers A Reminder That Young Cowboys Can Handle Adversity

Green Bay is being buoyed by Rodgers with the hope of them getting healthy as the season moves along and becoming really unsafe.

Defensive tackle Mike Daniels was limited to the opening walkthrough, but even that qualifies as a positive development for a team that came out of last week with more injuries than they would like. Ultimately, his name is going to be called again.

"That's a big if", Rodgers said after practice. When I was a little kid, my favorite player - and still my favorite player of all time - was Roger Staubach. There wasn't any hesitation. As much as it pains me to type, this was one I had marked down as a loss.

"I'm not willing to risk my overall long-term health", Montgomery said.

Ezekiel Elliott (Running Back): Zeke had his best game of the season last week and that level of production should continue if he is on the field.

USA sportsbook betting players will get a rematch of last year's NFC divisional game between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers. Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones will have to keep the Dallas D honest enough for Rodgers to work downfield. Dak Prescott and company host the Green Bay Packers this Sunday. He is averaging 12.1 yards a catch through four games this season. It puts Williams on track to play through his knee sprain.

Against Marinelli's defenses, Rodgers is 347 of 516 for 4,252 yards with 29 touchdowns, eight interceptions and a passer rating of 104.7.

He threw a ideal pass to tight end Jared Cook who made a 36-yard sliding catch along the sideline that set up a game-winning 51-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Packers to a 34-31 win.

"But (we) always liked his run style, and I thought he made good decisions". He has a great feel for the game and is an incredible competitor.

"Really, it's just about taking care of yourself, taking care of my body week in and week out", King said. If he really is looking like a dinosaur out there then the Cowboys' pass rush issues might finally be a thing of the past.

"Every game there's one or two plays where a couple of guys are messing up", Hitchens said. He's not afraid at all.

"They had a real good offensive line a year ago, and they still have a lot of the same pieces", said Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews.

A lot changes in a year's time in the National Football League, but more than enough familiar faces will suit up in the silver and blue in three day's time to warrant the same question - why not these 2017 Dallas Cowboys? "You see scramblers, but in the pocket he has the feel to step up or move back or squirt out left or right". Like we said Thursday night, his health was the most important thing. "I enjoyed playing out there".

"We've got a lot of good film to look at, a lot of places to grow, but also a lot of stuff to be proud of - 3-1, first quarter of the season over, with now an impending tough trip down to Dallas".
