NFL : Cowboys Ride Hot Quarterback into Lambeau

The Dallas Cowboys were staring at another lost season without QB Tony Romo, but with rookie Dak Prescott at the helm, they carry a 4-1 SU and ATS record into Sunday's matchup (4:25 PM ET, FOX) with the Green Bay Packers. Despite the strong start, Dallas is a 4-point road dog at press time, with a total of 47 points on the NFL odds board.

Prescott (seven combined TDs, zero INTs) is second in the league with an 83.9 QBR through Week 5, two spots ahead of his Green Bay counterpart, two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers (79.4 QBR). The Cowboys have also gotten quality play from rookie RB Ezekiel Elliott, who has scampered for five touchdowns on 5.0 yards per carry and leads the NFL with 546 yards rushing.

The Packers (3-1 SU, 2-1-1 ATS) had the early bye in Week 4, so they'll be the fresher team at Lambeau Field. However, Green Bay's pass defense hasn't been very good this year, and CB Sam Shields has yet to practice since suffering a concussion in the season opener. Sunday's weather forecast calls for clear skies over Lambeau with temperatures in the low 60s at kick-off.

NFL Odds: Prescott, Elliott Lead Cowboys into Green Bay
Two of the NFL's top rookies will be showcased Sunday afternoon (4:25 PM ET, FOX) when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Green Bay Packers. QB Dak Prescott and RB Ezekiel Elliott have been outstanding through five games, leading Dallas to a 4-1 SU and ATS record.

Despite their success, the Cowboys are 4-point puppies versus the Packers (3-1 SU, 2-1-1 ATS) at press time with a total of 47. Green Bay's defense has excelled against the run, but not so much against the pass; CB Sam Shields hasn't practiced since Week 1 because of a concussion.
