Nelson ruled out vs. Cowboys

If there wasn't so much at stake, this is the one game Cowboys fans would've wanted. The Rodgers-Cook chemistry may be coming at a good time, as Dallas has found itself vulnerable against opposing tight ends.

As the Green Bay defense seeks revenge, Clay Matthews believes the concept is rather simple.

In the National Football League playoffs, the teams with the best quarterbacks win. Take the Packers +4.5 over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Unlike the Packers, a repeat performance from Week 6 for the Cowboys would be considered a success.

Both offenses are too hot, and both defenses are too mediocre, even though we've seen solid performances out of the Dallas and Green Bay Ds here and there in the last month of the season.

On Nov. 20, the Redskins waxed the Packers in Maryland, beating Rodgers and company 41-26. Even though Rodgers had more yards, he only connected on one scoring pass in that game. Rodgers has been brilliant over the same stretch, accounting for 20 total touchdowns and no interceptions. "You may not see a lot of other people doing their jobs, but we'll be there". Randall Cobb, who had three touchdown catches against the Giants, will join Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison and Jeff Janis as receiving options this weekend. His missing last season was in my opinion the biggest variable behind Aaron Rodgers' comparative struggles, and Rodgers' resurgence this season magically coincided with Jordy getting his legs back.

These two teams are evenly matched and the Packers have deep playoff experience. The Cowboys offense averages almost 377 yards per game, where the Packers give up 364 yards per game. It's not about stopping Elliott in the first quarter, it's stopping him for four quarters.

Once that occurred, the Packers knew they'd be headed to No. 1 seed Dallas if Green Bay could beat the Giants, and they'd be on the road for as long as they last. "I think it's really clearly more of a reflection of our program". I think he's played his best here over the last three or four weeks. If the Packers get behind early, that becomes less and less likely. America's Team has risen from the ashes led by dynamic rookies Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott.

This would be the specific "know it when you see it moment" that Jerry Jones infamously referred to late previous year in reference to Romo playing again this season. The Packers defense certainly won't forget, and they will look to improve upon that performance. Maybe Ben Roethlisberger's ankle injury will ail him just enough for the Chiefs to come away with the victory. Nelson did not practice with the team on Thursday. "Who knows at this point". Smith's healthy, as is defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford. In Week 6, when the Packers faced the Cowboys, Ty Montgomery was a wide receiver. That's never a bad thing.
