Pro Football Playoff Previews and Predictions
Next Weekâ€™s Matchups:
Dallas @ Green Bay
What to watch for:
Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bayâ€™s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bayâ€™s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.
Pick: Green Bay 31-24
