My predictions for Sunday’s Divisional round games

Here are my predictions for the second round of the playoffs.

Let’s hope this game doesn’t have a major controversy.

GREEN BAY (4) VS COWBOYS (1)

This matchup is intriguing because we have the Cowboys, who have been playing well with a rookie quarterback, against a Packers team that ended the season strong with a seasoned veteran. Dallas has to play mistake-free with Dak Prescott under center. The rookie has been tremendous all year and has matured very well this season. Prescott must avoid the turnovers and be able to find his big-time players, especially Jason Witten and Dez Bryant. Ezekiel Elliot and the offensive line will give the Packers’ front seven a challenge in maintaining the pace of the game.

Aaron Rodgers has been here before and he appears to be the most dangerous player in the playoffs right now. The running game will hope to counter the Cowboys’ attack but it may once again come down the passing game. Jordy Nelson is out which means we have to see more Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. Still Rodgers can make a lot of plays despite the obstacles. Despite the Cowboys beating the Packers earlier this year, this is a different Packers team. They are the most dangerous team out in the NFC.

The NFL Twitter account has gone “nuts”

Nobody on the social media team realized what they were doing.

Thank goodness the Cowboys are wearing white in their #ColorRush game against the Panthers

We had known for a while what the color scheme for the Panthers-Cowboys matchup for their #ColorRush game. The NFL made it official with both teams announcing and revealing their looks.

NFL’s #ColorRush is coming and it’s a good idea executed poorly

The rumor during the offseason was that the NFL wanted some color vs. color uniform matchups during Thursday Night Football. It wasn’t clear whether or not teams would wear new uniforms for this occasion or just have teams wear what they have in their rotation.

During a commercial on Thursday Night Football, we got our answer. Check out the above video.

The idea is either to help merchandise sales or make Thursday Night Football seem like a special event. Either way, it doesn’t need to happen but it’s here. Color vs. color is nice and I want to see more if it in the NFL. But their approach to this isn’t the best.

Let’s break each matchup down in the order these games will be played.

This is why Terrell Owens celebrated on the Dallas Cowboys star

I had always assumed that Terrell Owens’ famous touchdown celebration on the Cowboys’ star was because he wanted to mock the opposition.

Not exactly.

In “A Football Life,” Owens retells the story of that day and said it was his way of praising God. You can believe that if you want or not, but watch the video and see for yourself.

NFLPA spokesman George Atallah comments on Cowboys, Broncos collusion investigation with emojis

Looks like the emoji messages on Twitter hasn’t left the sports world. After news broke of the an investigation on possible collusion between the Broncos and Cowboys, NFLPA’s assistant executive director of external affairs George Atallah shared his thoughts on the matter through a tweet of emojis.

My math tells me that the message means: (Broncos + Cowboys) x Love = Anger and disapproval

Either way, this is a serious issue and the NFLPA will not stand for it. And using emojis to express it is the way to go.

My predictions for Sunday’s Divisional round games

Here are my predictions for the second round of the playoffs.

Eddie Lacy will be a huge factor in the cold conditions.

DALLAS (3) VS GREEN BAY (2)

This game won’t necessarily be the Ice Bowl, but it will be cold. This makes me wonder whether or not the Packers, a team used to these elements, has the advantage. Let’s assume Aaron Rodgers’ calf is fine and he’s at his best. The Packers should have a strong chance of winning. But with the weather, it looks like it might come down to the defenses and how they stop the run. Eddie Lacy has turned it on as of late and is now the feature back the Packers know they have to rely heavily on.

The Cowboys can counter with DeMarco Murray. If the injured hand isn’t an issue with the weather, then the Cowboys offensive line will have a great day moving the ball up and down the field. It still will be on Tony Romo and how he can move the Cowboys up and down the field with this arm. Terrence Williams has been huge in helping out the passing attack and he might be a huge factor again if the Pack try to double on Jason Witten or Dez Bryant.
