Green Bay Packers
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
The fact that both teams could be without a key defensive player this Sunday when the 49ers and Packers play is not good. While Green Bay already knows their fate, San Francisco is hoping and waiting that they will not be without Carlos Rogers.
While his beloved Bears were knocked out of the playoffs by the Packers, the country star still dreams of the Chicago team winning the Super Bowl.
Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?
Last year, the 49ers made an improbable run to the Super Bowl, before falling one play short of reaching the ultimate team goal. They lost to the Baltimore Ravens, a more experienced team that rode momentum all the way to a Championship. This year it’s San Francisco who fits this description and unlike last year, the Niners have everything in place to get past the rest of the NFC.
Two of the NFL’s most decorated franchises will meet this Sunday when the Packers and 49ers meet in a NFC Wild Card matchup. The winner will move on in the playoffs, while the loser will face a disappointing end to a season that started with much higher aspirations.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
Despite Tony Romo making costly mistakes, the Cowboys coaching staff refusing to run the ball and the defense collapsing once again, much of the press after the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Green Bay Packers was surrounding Dez Bryant walking off the field before the game was over with.
Dallas Cowboys fans could look at the bright side: despite a crushing loss to Green Bay after holding a 23-point halftime lead, the Cowboys still have a chance to win their division.
Dez Bryant’s emotions got the best of him before the end of the game Sunday night against the Packers – forcing him to abandon his teammates on the sidelines and leave the game with minutes to spare.
The AT&T Stadium locker room was a desolate place, occupied by too few words, too few explanations and the stench of a befuddling team that was stubbornly intent on throwing the ball even if it killed ‘em….and it did.
How could a team be so dominant in the first half and so incompetent in the second? Cowboys rookie safety J.J. Wilcox admits he “let on the ease a little bit.”
