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

Sunday's game takes place from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and will air live on FOX. I believe that the Cowboys have the understanding of what it takes to move the ball against this Packers defense.

All-Pro linebacker Sean Lee missed the 35-30 loss to the Los Angeles Rams with a hamstring injury, and the Cowboys (2-2) are optimistic he can play Sunday against the Packers (3-1) even though he missed practice Wednesday.

Dallas, which is 2-2 SU and 2-2 ATS, isn't quite as loaded along the offensive line as it was last season, which has put more of the onus on QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott.

These teams have met many times over the past five decades in games that have had huge consequences on seasons and championships. They will look to get their 3rd win in a row as they travel to Dallas this Sunday.

Montgomery practiced with chest protection while Adams is in the league's concussion protocol, but Aaron Rodgers overcame their absences by throwing for four touchdowns as the Packers improved to 3-0 at home. If not, the Packers do have receiver depth to cover for him.

The Cowboys seem to be taking heavy precautions with left tackle, Tyron Smith who tweaked his back during practice.

So what are the guys saying about the Cowboys?

Dak Prescott VS Green Bay linebackers: Dak likes to make plays with his feet rather than throw incompletions or risky balls so the Packers linebacking corps will need to keep an eye on the young signal-caller.

THE HAUNTING: Cowboys linebacker Justin Durant pursued Rodgers as he rolled toward the sideline on the decisive throw to Cook, unable to get to the scrambling quarterback because of offensive lineman Lane Taylor on a play Durant said "should never happen". "It felt like they were but I want to see it". Time is the key because the Cowboys can apply pressure. DE DeMarcus Lawrence needs one sack to beat career high of eight from 2015. This year's top pick, Taco Charlton, is also in a deep rotation.

"The fact he was able to get up (in front of the defense) and let us know that he was wrong and he was going to make it right, that's what we need from him", Matthews added.

It's all about Zeke. Lee is likely to be a game-time decision, but LB Anthony Hitchens should make his season debut after a preseason knee injury. From two yards away, Dak Prescott put his head down and would not be denied running the ball up the middle - crossing the goal line to tie the game and give Cowboys faithful everywhere a sense of true hope once again.

But it's Jordy Nelson who has been Green Bay's go-to man in the end zone, snaffling five of his team's 10 passing touchdowns to date.

He can't be too bummed out that he didn't play for the Cowboys. The Cowboys' success starts and ends with Elliott. The OVER is 14-6 in the last 20 games between Green Bay and Dallas.

The NFC East is looking like it is going to be a highly competitive battle for much of the season, I would not rule the New York Giants out just yet as each team has a fairly hard schedule.

Having Mike Daniels and Davon House back will be a big factor. It's going to be a nailbiter, but I'm guessing Rodgers gets the job done and the Packers sneak out of town with a 31-27 win. That's enough time for some serious R&R for a Green Bay squad that was listed 11 players on its injury report to start this week.
