As for the Packers, Corey Linsley has been ruled out of the game as he continues to struggle with an ankle problem, but Clay Matthews, also ankle problem, is likely to feature so don't worry Packers fans he will be in today's game.

Apart from the noted injury to quarterback Tony Romo, the Cowboys haven't had any troubles in terms of players missing, Dez Bryant has been listed on the injury report as probable just as a precaution.

In recent years, Green Bay have used home advantage in their favor, but this season they haven't been their usual dominant selves, losing to Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears and Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field.

No matter how bad the Cowboys look on defense, they have kept a lot of their games close this year due to their defense They have 25 sacks for the season and 14 interceptions, averaging 21.1 yards for each.

Aaron Rodgers has been key to the success of the Packers this season. He has 2,957 passing yards with a total of 26 touchdowns and five interceptions. He currently has a quarterback rating of 97.3.

Meanwhile, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett was asked about Jerry Jones' comments after the game against the Redskins and said, “You start with us as a coaching staff, me as the head coach, the coaches throughout the staff, how our players play, and we all have to do better. That’s what we focus on when we come to work every day.”

Following Aaron Rodgers' Hail Mary to win the game against the Lions last week, McCarthy also took a jab at the Seattle Seahawks' "Fail Mary" and said, “I will just say this: At least our guy really caught the ball in this one. You can quote that."

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy talked to the media about running back Eddie Lacy and his up and down season this year: "Eddie has been rejuvenated. His work was good today... I look for him to have a very good week of practice."

Ted Moore, the Packers' radio announcer, called the final play of the game back in 1967: "Here are the Packers, third down, inches to go, to paydirt. 17-14, Cowboys out in front, Packers trying for the go-ahead score. Starr begins the count. Takes the snap...He's got the quarterback sneak and he's in for the touchdown and the Packers are out in front! 20-17! And 13 seconds showing on the clock and the Green Bay Packers are going to be...World Champions, NFL Champions, for the third straight year!"

Dallas and Green Bay also met back in the 1967 NFC Championship game, dubbed as the "Ice Bowl" and the game saw two future Hall-of-Fame coaches go against each other, Tom Landry for the Cowboys and Vince Lombardi for the Packers.

These two sides met in the postseason last season, and the Packers eliminated the Cowboys thanks to a controversial call involving Dallas' Dez Bryant, but winning their respected divisions will be on the players' minds not last seasons matchup.

It really was a wild finish to the 19-16 win against the Washington Redskins, 17 points were scored in the last 90 seconds of the game, with Dan Bailey's 54-yard field-goal separating the two sides.

After snapping a seven-game losing streak by beating the Miami Dolphins 24-14 in Week 11, they lost to the Carolina Panthers 33-14 on Thanksgiving Day, and they also lost Tony Romo for the season.

Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys have certainly seen better times, however, even with a 4-8 record this season, they remain within one game of the other three teams in the NFC East.

Aaron Rodgers dragged his team out of the depths of despair and found Richard Rodgers in the end zone for a 61-yard reception with 0:00 left on the clock, a play that left goose bumps all over your body.

The Green Bay Packers come into Week 14 tied for the top spot in the NFC North with an 8-4 record. They have only won two of their last six games, but they bounced back last week with a 27-23 win against the Detroit Lions.
