The Dallas Cowboys accomplished not only breaking a three-year 8-8 streak by finishing the regular season with a 12-4 record, but quarterback Tony Romo performed well in a big game to squeak past the Lions 24-20 last Sunday. They will head north to Lambeau Field to face a Packers team in their chilly home turf which currently has a kickoff time forecasted in the teens.
This Sunday’s division matchup is an interesting one as the Green Bay Packers were undefeated at home during the 2014 regular season, while their opponent Dallas, is the only team in the NFL with a perfect record on the road. Both signal callers were among the top in quarterback rating throughout the regular season, yet Tony Romo and Aaron Rodgers have experienced their share of injury issues this season.
Rodgers aggravated a calf injury in Week 17 and still managed to throw two touchdowns. Romo’s back appears to not be a problem; however his line needs to do a better job of keeping his jersey clean to avoid any further potential injuries. The Cowboys quarterback was sacked six times last week versus the Lions due to a combination of his poor decision making and a weak line.
This Sunday’s game could very well come down to which quarterback makes less mistakes. If we went solely by experience, we all know Rodgers is the favorite, but Romo has surprised many people this season and may not make any crucial typical “Romo” mistakes down the stretch.
Either way it shakes out, fans with Packers tickets should see a great divisional game between two very talented teams. The winner goes on to face either the Panthers or Seahawks for the NFC title.
