Just because Denver’s season is over it doesn’t mean Broncos fans who like to gamble still can’t win some money on the team. Sportsbooks in Las Vegas actually have odds on who will be the Broncos’ next head coach.
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.
The Green Bay Packers have made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons since winning the Super Bowl.

The 2014 Oakland Raiders started out 0-10, but they split their last six games to finish 3-13. This was one game worse than the 2013 squad, which finished 4-12. The Silver & Black haven’t had a winning season since 2002, and they haven’t been to the playoffs since losing the Super Bowl that year. What’s next?
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.
