Prediction: Jake Wall, Sport DFW Post-Game/Staff Writer
The playoffs have started a little early for 2 of the NFL’s most storied franchises, the loser of Sundays match-up between the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys is essentially finished. Sure the Cowboys could still find a way to get in should they lose, however, they realize that they need to win-out to get in to the playoffs.
It appears that Aaron Rodgers will miss another game for the Packers but it looks like rookie Running Back Eddie Lacy will play. For the Cowboys, in addition to missing Sean Lee, Bruce Carter will also be out against the Packers.
This game will come down to the play of two suspect defenses and whichever unit can make a play or two will be the difference in this one. My guess is that Romo catches fire starting this week, its the only chance the Cowboys have.
Prediction: The Cowboys have been tough to beat at home this season, Dallas wins 34-21 behind a strong game from Tony Romo and Demarcus Ware.
