Green Bay Packers
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.”
The Dallas Cowboys went into halftime of their game with the Green Bay Packers looking like they were going to win big. Then the Packers came to life in the second half and Dallas suffered one of their biggest collapses in franchise history.
Matt Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half, rallying from 23 points down to beat the Dallas Cowboys 37-36 Sunday in Arlington.
The Cowboys will be without three defensive starters in linebackers Sean Lee and Bruce Carter and cornerback Morris Claiborne against the Green Bay Packers.
The Green Bay Packers won’t have the injured Aaron Rodgers for a sixth straight game. Playing a backup quarterback may prove not to be a detriment against the Dallas Cowboys’ league-worst defense, though.
