Aaron Rodgers continues to torch opposing defenses.

The NFL on Tuesday cut Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan's suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams from two games to one. "Like most of us do, we check our news sites or Twitter and you're just heartbroken for those people", Rodgers said in Green Bay Wednesday.

Here are several players who could have a very productive outing on Sunday making them ideal fantasy football starters. What makes it even more wonderful, Prescott wasn't a top five overall draft choice, but rather a round four pick, the 135th player taken overall. The Packers will try to pick up another win over the Cowboys this Sunday afternoon. The Packers just have a weird way of making things work, and the road team has had the bulk of the success against the spread in this matchup, so I'll take Green Bay and the points in a game I think the Pack win outright.

Containing Rodgers, of course, is the No. 1 priority for the Cowboys this week.

Marinelli needs his defensive linemen to stay disciplined in their pass-rushing lanes on Sunday. "He's exceptional in every way". He always plays with great poise and composure. Make him a pocket passer.

Just so you know, it wasn't a lucky play. Rodgers complimented Jones "natural" rushing skills.

"The only stat that really matters is getting a "W", Martellus Bennett said". In the two losses so far for the Cowboys, they have allowed 38.5 points per game. "There's so many situations like this, and we send our thoughts and prayers to these victims, and unfortunately keep having to stand up here and talk about this", Rodgers said.

Brett Favre will go down as one of the best quarterbacks to have ever played in the NFL. You don't see that often. "Get ready to play the next down".

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said with a wry smile all he remembered was that the Packers "completed it". We will see what happens and hopefully we can get everybody back. "His arm is unbelievable".

Green had 10 catches for 111 yards and one touchdown with King following him on most snaps. He could be worked into the offense more effectively but as soon as the Cowboys get into the red zone they will run the ball.

Defensive tackle Stephen Paea wasn't with the team last year, but knows Rodgers well after spending his first four years in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears, the Packers' NFC North rival.

"Who I was when I was with the Cowboys, I was a little (jerk), a little (expletive). His neck felt good, so that's really encouraging". "I'm feeling a lot better than I felt on Thursday". His 7.4 average this year suggests he is wisely choosing when to use his feet, rather than his arm, to move downfield and to get first downs. The patience allowed Cook just enough time to open up a passing lane for Rodgers, who made the hard throw on the run.

"We've got to get to him".
