Green Bay, Wisconsin-- The last time these two teams met in a match of this magnitude was during the Ice Bowl in which the Packers got the win in freezing conditions. THis time around the weather won't be as cold but still cold with winds estimated at being from 5 to 7 mph, fog but no snow or rain and a temperature of 21 degrees.
The Green Bay Packers are undefeated at home this season and look to continue that streak while the Cowboys on the otherhand are undefeated on the road and will be looking to also continue their streak. The question comes down to who’s streak is going to end here along with their season?
Aaron Rodgers is coming off a MVP like season, however he has taken a knock in the last game against the Lions and is still missing from practice. Good news is he has indicated he is playing, bad news is he has indicated on how well it will be. The Cowboys on the otherhand are coming together at the right time with their first win in the last 10 or so years in the NFL Playoffs.
The real test for the Cowboys will be getting their running game going to dictate the time of possession in the game. Demarco Murray is the Cowboys MVP this season even though many Cowboy fans are blinded by the glamor of the quarterback position, they need to keep Murray going hot and the routes will open up for Tony Romo too take advantage of.
The Packers will need Aaron Rodgers at his best as he has been playing at the highest level this season when healthy, and as he goes, the packers season goes. Eddie Lacy has been an improvement to the Packers potent offense, but he won't be enough to win this game as the defence is still suspect and can give up more than one big play a game.
I have the final score being 35-28 Green Bay, however if Aaron Rodgers comes up limp at any time during this game, then the score could get ugly fast in favor of the Cowboys.
