Divisional Playoff Open Thread: Cowboys vs. Packers

The Green Bay Packers ruled out leading wide receiver Jordy Nelson with a rib injury for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

"We were heartbroken", Ezekiel Elliott said.

So we can all agree that it was a crushing loss, and a disappointing way to end the year.

On the Green Bay Packers' penultimate play of their 34-31 thriller of a victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Aaron Rodgers did what he does: delivers unbelievable plays when his team absolutely has to have them.

"It doesn't matter, though", Irving said at his locker on Monday afternoon. "If I got over the top of them, Aaron would put the ball in the right place". The Steelers have won nine straight games.

"I can't say enough about my football team's resiliency", McCarthy said. Dak to the Future was good enough for the present. But in the immediate aftermath of the game, many saw fit to note how important it was that Rodgers had not fumbled while taking that violent sack.

Lucky Reds 'like' one-goal deficit - Klopp
Redmond's goal had come shortly after he had been denied by an advancing Karius and it would prove to be the pattern of the game. The one positive for Klopp was that Philippe Coutinho returned to the team after seven weeks out with an ankle injury .

The Dallas Cowboys' magical season is over, courtesy of the Packers' magical quarterback. Green Bay rolled 48-21 and went on to win the Super Bowl.

Packers teammate: Mason Crosby has "ice in his veins" - NFL.com Those are the words of punter and holder Jacob Schum, who also said that Crosby "stays in his own head, doing his own thing, his own routine".

Crosby said his first was most hard, especially since the 56-yard attempt would have put the Cowboys at their 46-yard line if he missed it with plenty of time for Dak Prescott to drive the offense down for the field goal.

"They did exactly kinda what we thought they're gonna do", Prescott said. Brady and Rodgers will duel Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan, respectively, for a chance to go to Super Bowl LI.

Here came Prescott running in the two-point conversion. If the Cowboys hadn't spiked the ball, Rodgers would've likely had no time to work with and the game likely would've gone to overtime assuming Bailey could've hit a last-second kick. "The one we did miss was the one that got knocked down at the line of scrimmage". "We just needed another play down the stretch and we didn't get it". He was superb over the final 21/2 quarters, producing 28 points and 250 passing yards, completing 20 of 29.

"We're not gonna give up?" "They'll continue to fight is what they will for next year". "And I know Dak and them, I know they'll do it". At least some of these people paid for their seats, they have seats assigned, and the game isn't for another 1.5 hours (at the time this video was shot), so why run? "Plan on playing many more".
