11. Dallas Cowboys (3-2)
Recap: The game between the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers was even more lopsided than the 34-24 score looked. At one point, the Packers were up 31-3. The Cowboys managed to show at least some sign of life on offense in the fourth quarter, but by then it was too little too late.
Pros: Amari Cooper went off for 226 yards and two scores, but that was with the Cowboys trailing by a billion points. Ezekiel Elliot’s quiet game on the ground was a result of game script, so nothing to worry about there.
Cons: Dak Prescott didn’t look like a $30-plus million quarterback in Week 5. He threw three picks, and only threw for a season-high 463 yards because, again, the Cowboys were trailing by a billion points. The Cowboys defense was embarrassed off the field in Lambeau, and Aaron Jones was their daddy. The Pack scored 34 points without their best receiver, also.
Outlook: With every passing week, it’s hard to take the Cowboys seriously when their three wins have come against teams with a combined record of 2-12, while also having shown nothing against two contenders the past two weeks. Dallas gets a softball matchup with the New York Jets in Week 6.
