The Dallas Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon in a huge Week 5 clash for the NFL 2017b regular season. The game takes place from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, and has a scheduled start time of 4.25 p.m. ET. The game can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below).
This is an important clash for both teams as things are tight in both the NFC North and the NFC East divisions after the first month of the new season.
The Packers will be reasonably happy with their 3-1 start to the season, however, their one loss so far means their record is only good enough to give them a share of the top spot in the division, as the Detroit Lions have also started well and are on 3-1. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings are on 2-2 and chasing the leading two as well.
The Cowboys are tied for second spot in the NFC East with an even 2-2 record after the first month of the season.
They will be desperate to maintain the pressure on the division leading Philadelphia Eagles, who are on 3-1 coming into Week 5.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will be looking to surpass the 1,000 yard mark today. So far he is 87 of 143 for 941 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Opposite him will be Aaron Rodgers, who is 107 of 160 for 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record.
Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.
The game came down to the final play, but once the dust settles the Patriots will be satisfied as a win is a win, and the game also saw quarterback Tom Brady tie Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for the most season wins by a quarterback with 186 victories.
Brady had a tough night, but still came up with some good stats. Despite throwing an interception, and losing a fumble, as well as getting hit all night, he managed to complete 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown.
As for the Buccaneers they will be disappointed having fallen just short of completing their comeback. Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots. Winston finished the game with 334 yards, completing 26 throws from 46 attempts.
The Buccaneers will also be looking at kicker Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, as a reason they came up short.
