At the moment, Elliott has the ninth most rushing yardage in the league; his average run, however, is a middling 3.6 yards.
Green Bay may be forced to weigh the best interest of the team against the best interests of their injured stars on Sunday. Ezekial Elliott may not be on pace for his rookie number of 1,631 yards and 15 TD's, but after facing him twice a year ago Green Bay knows the challenge in stopping him.
"It's always been battles going up against Coach Marinelli and I always look forward to the challenge". We know hoe they're gonna play us.
The Packers are 3-1 and playing well despite a dearth of healthy players - Aaron Rodgers ' line is banged up, his receivers are dealing with early-season injuries and some of the best Packers defensive players have struggled to stay on the field. Both games were winnable but unfortunately things did not go the Cowboys way late in the playoff game. Cornerback Orlando Scandrick broke a hand in the opener and was sidelined for a blowout loss in Denver.
From 2012 to 2014, The Bears played the Packers in primetime on a different night each year. The opposite was in play against the Rams - good first half, bad second half, as in five straight scoring possessions for LA.
It will take several turnovers though to keep the Cowboys in this game. Last year's unexpected tear through the NFC left Cowboys Nation asking week in and week out if we were really witnessing the start of another dominant stretch in Dallas.

Cyrus, who is doing a weeklong residency at The Tonight Show , also participated - holding back tears as she wrote her note. And there was something he had to do: give his female writers an opportunity to thank her in person.
One can only hope that next season could be the first since 2010 to where the Bears play the Packers in Green Bay on a traditional Sunday afternoon and not in primetime.
Montgomery was nicked up on his very first carry but churned out four additional rushes before departing Thursday's contest. 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.
In his past four games against the Cowboys, Rodgers has thrown for 1,183 yards with eight touchdowns and two interceptions. The absence of defensive backs Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Awuzie didn't help either. "It's probably the youngest defense I've seen in a long time, a bunch of young guys with major roles". Also, the Packers run game is essentially non-existent as they rank 28th in rushing yards per game; Rodgers will have to beat them through the air.
Safeties Byron Jones and Jeff Heath are among the most experienced players in the Dallas secondary, along with Scandrick. Like we said Thursday night, his health was the most important thing. We lost a couple of guys.
"Just - it's something that unfortunately we're still having to deal with". This is a risky team, but one that has battled injuries early in the season. He was in a walking boot in the locker room and could need surgery. He battled back problems last year and in camp this year.
Because he's still in the concussion protocol, Adams is forbidden from talking to reporters until he gains full clearance.
