The Dallas Cowboys are on a bye this week after defeating the Green Bay Packers in Wisconsin this past Sunday.
There may not be a game, but with two stellar rookies and a looming quarterback controversy there is always news swirling around this team.
Here are five things to know today:
1. It looks like Dak Prescott is going to start next week against the Philadelphia Eagles.
2. Ezekiel Elliott is going after a franchise record, and after six games he looks pretty good.
3. Speaking of Elliott, what better way to spend your off day than helping homeless pets?
4. Dallas is continuing to surge in the NFL power rankings.
5. The Cowboys running game could be getting a boost (not that it needed one) from Darren McFadden.
