The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers are two of the NFL’s most iconic franchises and they battle in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Here is a look at the Packers heading into the big game.
Among the many NFL records set in the 2014 season, most notable – and hardly surprising – was something done by Peyton Manning.
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.
This is not because Rodgers beat Brady last week. The game was whisker-close and you could easily argue that the Patriots would win a rematch on a neutral field. This is about stats, scent, and sense.
Since we are upon our great day of gratitude, a pretext for gorging on poultry and then taking our swollen torsos to the nearest television for some football, let’s look to sports for reasons to give thanks.
Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall tried to put fans at ease on Xfinity Monday Live after the lopsided loss to the New England Patriots Sunday night.
Next up for Peyton Manning: the NFL passing yardage record. Manning needs about 5,000 more yards to surpass Favre in that category, and is on track to finish his career with numbers, across the board, that might never be matched.
It was another Thursday night blowout, as the Packers dominated the Vikings 42-10 last night in Green Bay. The Packers moved to 3-2, while Minnesota is 2-3, struggling on offense without Teddy Bridgewater, who was inactive with a sprained ankle.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.
Will this contest between NFC North rivals be the first competitive Thursday night game of the season?
