Ezekiel Elliott once again gashed an opposing defense by running for 157 yards on 28 carries. He now has at least 134 yards in four consecutive games.

The Packers have a quick turnaround when they host the Bears on Thursday Night Football. The Cowboys are on a bye.
Rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are making it look easy. The Cowboys (4-1) have reeled off four consecutive victories behind the first-year players. Prescott has yet to turn the ball over and Elliott is the league’s No. 1 rusher.
Overall, Dallas is the top rushing team in the NFL, going for 155 yards per game. Green Bay has the stingiest run defense, allowing only 48 yards per game on 2 yards per carry.
The Packers (3-1) are coming off a 23-16 win over the Giants, but seemingly haven’t hit their stride offensively. Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 9 touchdowns but is only completing 56.1 percent of his passes.
