Green Bay Packers vs. Dallas Cowboys: Who wins?

The Cowboys are undefeated on the road. The Packers are unbeaten at home. Something has to give on Sunday afternoon when the two teams meet (with Chris Christie in attendance, of course) at Lambeau Field in an NFC divisional playoff game.

The real tricky part of this game is determining the health of Packers all-world quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He’ll play, but will he last? Rodgers has a slight tear in his calf. His absence, even for a play, would change everything. The Packers undoubtedly have some guy that nobody else really wants as their backup. Yep, Matt Flynn.

It’s Green Bay in January, so the weather should be as expected ‐ cold, cold and cold. How will that affect the game? The Cowboys are the better running team. They’re the one with the better offensive line. Maybe that is why there were some picks for the underdog Cowboys.

Regardless, looking at the predictions, this much is certain ‐ everyone expects plenty of points.
