The return of Tony Romo is on the horizon, and many wonder if rookie Dak Prescott can postpone that with continuing strong play. Prescott has played better than anybody expected in relief of Romo, who was injured in the preseason, but the Cowboys have been adamant that Romo is their starter going forward. Dallas is 4-1 under Prescott, and will face a true test in the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
The game has kickoff set for 4:25 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FOX. A live stream will be available online via FOX Sports GO, though it will require login credentials from a cable or satellite provider.
Few have expected the Cowboys to find success with Prescott, but they have. And while Romo has been the long-time franchise quarterback, it still seems odd that the Cowboys aren't going to go with Prescott, who seems like the future of the franchise.
Either way, the Cowboys are coming off four consecutive wins, only losing in Week 1 to the rival New York Giants. After the Packers, they will face the tough rival Philadelphia Eagles, so it's an important couple weeks ahead.
It's unclear if the Cowboys will have Dez Bryant playing for them on Sunday. Bryant has missed multiple games with a knee injury and the Cowboys have been taking the cautious route in bringing him back. They have a bye week coming up and many feel Bryant will sit out through the bye week. That would be a big boost for the Packers' secondary, as Bryant is one of the top receivers in the entire league.
Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and the league's best run-blocking line will be in action, however. Elliott, a first-round pick, leads the league with 546 yards rushing, nearly 100 more yards than the guy behind him, former Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray.
Dallas is ranked second in the league in yards per game at 397.0. They rank first in the league in rushing yards with 776 yards on the ground, while Green Bay has struggled in that area. The Packers rank 21st running the ball with just 448 yards on the season. But scoring offense is where things get interesting, with Dallas ranked eighth in the league with 25.8 points scored per game.
The Packers rank 11th at 24.5 points scored per game themselves. On defense, things are fairly close as well. Dallas allows 18.2 points per game, good for eighth in the league, while Green Bay allows 20.8, good for 12th in the league. When it comes to pure yardage, the Packers have allowed fewer at 1,271 yards while the Cowboys have allowed 1,778 yards, ranking them 18th in the league to Green Bay's fourth. On paper, it's a fairly even matchup though Aaron Rodgers is obviously the most dangerous player in Sunday's game.
