For the second consecutive week, the Dallas Cowboys have gotten a break in a cold weather. There is nothing frozen about the tundra. Its in the low 50's, and that has to make the Cowboys smile.
Riding a four-game winning streak, today seems to be the last game that stands in their way of going 9-2, and setting themselves up comfortably in the NFC east drivers seat.
A month ago, this gamed looked to be marquee. But thanks to a bad offensive line, and a loss to the winless Bucaneers, the Packers have faded fast into a 4-4 record.
On paper for the Cowboys, that sounds good. But last weeks choke prompted a "players only" meeting for the Green and Gold, which included players being harshly honest. The coach and gm are on the hot seat, and this Packers team is desperate. That is the only reason the Pack will be competitive.
The talent doesn't match up. The Cowboys will expose a weak offensive line, and make life miserable for Aaron Rodgers.
Dallas got a huge win here last year, and will make another Lambeau Leap today running their win streak to five-games.
My prediction: Cowboys 23 Packers 17
