Got to love this guy's work. For a journalist, he has a pretty decent eye for X`s and O`s.

Interested to see what you guys' thoughts are on the game.

The thing I'm the most concerned about is Green Bay's offense. It's not that I doubt our defense, but Aaron Rodgers has made some pretty good defenses look pretty bad this year. He hasn't given up a pick in a while, either.

I think we'll be able to move the ball and put up points on offense. I do worry about these Rodgers Hail Mary passes, though.

Bing actually did a simulation and gave the Cowboys a 51% chance of winning, and the line right now, I believe, is Cowboys by 4.

Go Cowboys!

Rogers is good. I went and checked out some other break downs of his game in recent weeks, and he is definitely on a different level than in the first meeting.

Here is how he makes his money: Vision. His elusiveness to extend plays, both in and out of the pocket, helps create the passing plays he wants - open lanes and clear targets. It does not matter if they are open, if he can see them getting open he will throw them open. And when he gets to see what he is aiming for, he is deadly accurate, especially in the last two months.

Nevertheless, and with as much honesty in my assessments as I could muster, the best defensive approach I have seen against him in 2016 has actually been that of the Dallas Cowboys. And while he certainly was not as accurate then, I do not feel like it would have changed the outcome of the game. In October, the Cowboys managed to contain him, consistently put lineman in his face, and keep him in the pocket, all while the secondary kept the receivers in front and flooded the passing lanes. The clear vision and Aaron Rogers were thwarted.

I've seen many say we need to get to Rogers, even to the necessity of blitzing, but I disagree. The key is to keep Rogers in the pocket with defenders in his face, and make sure there is obfuscation in the defensive backfield, occupying and confusing forcing the tightest of windows. Easier said than down, and he'll still get his, but this will limit the potency of the passing game.

On the other side of the ball, the Cowboys will obviously need to score. This is where they win the game. And it may not just be all about time of possession, either. Of course, that will matter, as the Cowboys much larger offensive should be able to wear them down, but it will be imperative that Dak find and take advantage of the one on one's that will be there all day. We still want them to pass through the run. But Green Bay will commit early, and beating them over the top will be the antidote. And even beyond breaking their rushing strategy, the Cowboys speed at receiver can take beat the weakest secondary, not only still alive, but throughout most of the NFL. Dak must be on his game, and I expect nothing less.

Most underrated offensive "MVP" of the game. Cole Beasley. Their corners can't stay with him. Not a one. Defensively, it will take them all.
