The Dallas Cowboys need a winning streak to finish the season with a chance at the NFC East title and a playoff berth. Fortunately for the Cowboys the Green Bay Packers will be without their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
“Hey, it’s not the easiest thing to sit there and tell your franchise quarterback he can’t play in the game when he wants to play in the game,” Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said, via ESPN. “This is clearly a decision that’s made in the best interest of Aaron Rodgers.”
Of course the Cowboys were thrashed by a back up quarterback on Monday night.
“Basically, we will have to make some adjustments in what we are doing defensively,” owner Jerry Jones said Monday. “What that usually means is taking more risks on defense. But if you’re going to have the kind of match like we had tonight or certainly in New Orleans, you have to take some risks. We have to double up and I’m sure that will be part of the plan on defense; more risks.”
