Dallas Cowboys

While the Seattle Seahawks are arguably the hottest team in football, I think the Dallas Cowboys do what the Seahawks do better on the offensive side on the ball.  Dallas is built to win in January and February.  It’s no coincidence that DeMarco Murray is having his best season as a pro and Tony Romo is getting MVP buzz.

The Cowboys have one of, if not the most, physical offensive lines in the game.  Jason Garrett has proven that he is not afraid to feed Murray 30-plus times a game a grind a defense down.  Not only that, but Dez Bryant is finally living up to all the hype surrounding him.

Bryant has emerged as the best wide receiver in the league, and that would worry Green Bay if they were to play against him.  Do I think Sam Shields and Tramon Williams can hold their own against Bryant; sure.  Do I think Bryant would get his if the two teams played; he’d have more.

Dallas is a very balanced team and they have been showing it all year.  If Green Bay were to face off against Dallas I think it would be an all out shootout.

The last time these two teams faced off was week 15 last year.  Green Bay pulled off an epic comeback behind the play of Matt Flynn, who was playing in place of the injured Aaron Rodgers.  Green Bay ended up winning by one point, 37-36.  I think if the two teams were to play again, the score would look similar.

These are two of the more balanced offenses heading into the playoffs, and I don’t see either defense being able to slow them down much.

Green Bay is fully capable of winning this game, but don’t expect them to if Murray gets going.
