The Green Bay Packers begin their playoff season against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at Lambeau Field and Aaron Rodgers will be a part of it. The MVP favorite quarterback has been nursing a strained calf to his left leg. The Packers list five players on their injury report and the Cowboys list 12 players on theirs.
Some expect the Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers game to be a shootout between the NFL’s top rated passers. However, the Packers coach considers running back DeMarco Murray to be the difference.
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.
Planning to fly soon? You better book those flights this week because tickets purchased next Monday will cost you more.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy is expecting his defense to rise to the occasion.
