Green Bay defense preparing for multiple Cowboys weapons

That Packers game also happened to be the same week where defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli introduced the Deacon defense as a major part of his gameplan.

On the ground, Ezekiel Elliott rushed 85 yards and a touchdown in 21 carries while Alfred Morris added 76 yards in two attempts.

Though the boys from Titletown enter the contest at 3-1, a great deal of questions remain about the perennial contender that continues to be over-reliant on the arm and legs of their franchise leader, Aaron Rodgers.

"Played well. Instinctive runner", Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said of Jones. The fourth-year middle linebacker returned to practice last week. He asked me one time to repeat which side he was motioning to. In practice. In games. Smith is in his second season but missed his rookie year recovering a knee injury sustained in his final game at Notre Dame.

"He's very crafty in running his routes", said Packers safety Morgan Burnett. One of Rodgers' rare deep throws against the Bears went to Nelson, whose 58-yard catch came on a ball caught 44 yards past the line of scrimmage for Rodgers' deepest completion of the season. That's just the way it's going to be", said Bulaga, who hurt the ankle in an August 23 practice, missed the first two games, then re-injured it against the Cincinnati Bengals "I'm just going to have to get it to a point where it's manageable enough and then just try to take care of it the rest of the way and keep it manageable. With the injury concerns on the offensive line for the Packers, Irving's return may be the ideal medicine for the pass rush minus DeMarcus Lawrence. Rodgers has handled teams with short, quick passes, though there is always the threat for a big-play strike.

On third-and-20 with 12 seconds left, Rodgers rolled left on a designed play against a two-deep zone with six defensive backs. All five touchdowns in last week's win over Chicago came from inside the 10. I grew up in Texas, and can say in full honesty that the slogan "Everything's bigger in Texas" is true-the hype surrounding this game will be extensive, and the Cowboys will be ready to roll.

"He's got some good matchups". After finding so much success in 2016, USA sportsbooks and National Football League fans alike were expecting Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott to pick up right where they left off. And pass-catching tight end Martellus Bennett hasn't scored a touchdown yet this season.

"The only stat that really matters is getting a "W", Martellus Bennett said".

The mini bye weekend following the Bears game saw the Packers get a little healthier. Kind of just stay even-keeled about things because we've got a good guy coming up and another good guy, another good guy.

The Cowboys are one loss from matching their total last regular season following a 35-30 home upset defeat to the hugely improved Rams on Sunday.

Wide receiver Davante Adams is still in the concussion protocol but was back on the practice field.
