NFL PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS: Here's some grist for the sports argument mill

January 6, 2015

Pro Football Playoff Previews and Predictions

This coming weekend'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 Bay’s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bay’s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.
