The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
The Green Bay Packers do not have to play this Sunday. That is a good thing as quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be able to get some extra rest before the Packers begin their run toward the Super Bowl. They will host one of three teams in the Divisional Round. Their opponent will be determined by the outcome of the Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys game.
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 Dallas Cowboys will get another shot at team’s backup quarterback on Sunday in Arlington. Hopefully this time, it works out.
The Dallas Cowboys fell to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football and now have to stave off another NFC North opponent in the Green Bay Packers. Here is a look at the Packers heading into the big game.
Fans of the Oakland Raiders know the phrase “quarterback competition” almost more than any other in the English language. That is no different for the 2013 season, but Matt Flynn hopes that the competition ends his well-traveled career and ends with him.
Flynn will start against the Cowboys and will likely play the first quarter. Terrelle Pryor will follow and could play the bulk of the next two quarters before rookies Matt McGloin and Tyler Wilson finish up the preseason opener for Oakland.
