Star Lotulelei out for the rest of the playoffs with a broken foot. Still like the Panthers chances slightly better than the Colts. Colts are just really ill-suited to knock off Denver or New England at this point, you just can't beat those two teams with your offense.

Colts will lose by the widest margin of the four 38 - 14 or something

Dallas will lead by halftime and time of possession.

Colts got the most favorable matchup there 1-1 against the Broncos and 0-3 against the Pats. I know we don't have a great chance to win but with Luck we have a shot in this game. Don't forget the pressure the broncos have in this game.Anyways who ever wins this game I will be rooting for the rest of the way

1/10 4:35 ET At New England -7 Baltimore
1/10 8:15 ET At Seattle -11 Carolina
1/11 1:00 ET At Green Bay -6 Dallas
1/11 4:40 ET At Denver -7 Indianapolis


According to Vegas Dallas has the best odds to upset by a very small margin

Really it looks like Panthers are the only "long shot" and then the other 3 are about even.



My gut doesn't like Colt's odds though...Denver's run D is elite against an already weak run offense, Luck is going to be forced to throw at Chris Harris and Talib a lot, that could get really ugly.

I think vegas is correct that Dallas has the best chance of an upset out of all the underdogs playing this weekend. When dallas controls the game with Murray and the o-line, they can beat just about anybody, and green bay happens to be terrible against the run.

Also agree about the Colts. Denver is a bad matchup for them and unless Luck has a ton of his something-out-of-nothing miracle plays I dont think they stand a chance.

I've got all the same, all home teams winning... but that "Packets" and Cowboys score???

2 of the best offenses get involved in a defensive game????? I guess you're counting on the weather as a factor.

Cowboys 17 - Packers 35

Don't think Dallas has a chance. They won their "superbowl" last week and now that they've got the "monkey" off their back. Their players and fans celebrated just as that. Good for them, now they are going get crushed by Arod.

Seahawks 23 - Panthers 13

Broncos 35 - Indy 24

Patriots 17 - Baltimore 14

I can see Baltimore upsetting them though. Historically, a tough match-up for New England.

What "monkey" are you talking about exactly?

We won a PO game just 4 years ago...it's a "monkey" every time?

We very well could get destroyed by GB but that would have everything to do with GB and nothing to do with early celebrations.

Rodgers has a confirmed torn calf muscle. But he's still going to start Sunday.

If a one legged Rodgers wrecks America's Team I'll blow my load all over the screen.

GO PACK.

Yup just read that. This game just got a lot more interesting. This takes away one of his biggest assets.

Yeah Rodgers will be confined to the pocket (where he is still very dangerous obviously)

But that does make things a little easier on the Dallas Defense...we never have to spy him now, can focus more on coverage

Blitzing him might be a whole lot easier now too as he won't be able to escape outside the pocket

Blitzing isn't the way to beat Rodgers. The packers offense struggles when defenses can send 4 and get pressure.

Rodgers has been dealing with the effects of a strained calf, and was held out of practice on Wednesday. Now sources close to the team are saying that the calf has a slight tear in it in addition to the significant strain.

“There’s no question he will play, but there’s also no question he will not be 100 percent,” one doctor familiar with the injury told ESPN. “The question is whether he’ll be 95 percent or 50 percent.”

While the rumors may indicate a difficult time for the Green Bay Packers, it appears certain that Aaron Rodgers will play in Sunday’s matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

“I’m going on Sunday,” Rodgers said Wednesday. “It’s just a matter of how.”

This is great news for Cowboy haters...now if Dallas wins you already have another excuse ready!

I think what he meant was Dallas "celebrated" because it's was their only chance to celebrate. He wasn't implying that celebrating would be a distraction towards their upcoming game. That's clichéd rubbish we hear from sports talk shows and meathead fans:

"My God. They a looked a little too happy out there. Do they realize they got another game to play next week?"
