- Aaron Rodgers leads the Green Bay Packers into Dallas while Kansas City risks its undefeated record at Houston in Sunday's feature games in NFL-loving Texas. The Packers return to Cowboys Stadium, where they defeated Pittsburgh in the 2011 Super Bowl, with a 3-1 record and a share of the NFC North division lead to face a 2-2 Cowboys team coming off a 35-30 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Rodgers has completed 107 of 160 passes for 1,146 yards and 10 touchdowns, with five scoring tosses to Jordy Nelson. He ranks third in the NFL in completions, accuracy and yardage and shares the touchdowns lead with New England's Tom Brady. But Dallas counters with a formidable defensive unit that includes the NFL sacks leader Demarcus Lawrence, who has 7 1/2 sacks in only four games. The Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) are the only unbeaten team this season but face a tough test gainst the Texans (2-2) and hot rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in a 57-14 rout of Tennessee last week.
