The Green Bay Packers will play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in one of five late afternoon games in Week 15 of the NFL 2013 regular season. Both teams still have playoff hopes, however, they also have both fallen back of late and will be desperate to gain the win here today. The game will start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Green Bay Packers have fallen back badly since their good start early on in the season. They are not 6-6-1 and third in the NFC North division. However, if they can quickly regain their early season form and win out the season they will still be in with a chance of the playoffs and even the division title.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys will be disappointed having let the lead slip at the top of the NFC East. The Philadelphia Eagles have now claimed sole possession of the top position in the division, and the pressure is now on the Cowboys to claim back the top spot before the end of the season. Their postseason hopes are in the balance right now, and everything depends on how they see out the final few weeks of the season.
Having won games against the New York Giants (24-21), and the Oakland Raiders (31-24), the Cowboys lost last week in a 28-45 game against the Chicago Bears. However, if they can defeat the Packers today, they will feel confident they can best the lowly Washington Redskins next week. That potentially would set them up for a winner takes all game with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17 on Dec. 29.
Tony Romo will be a vitally important player for the Cowboys as the season draws to an end, and he is 296 of 460 for 3,244 yards and 27 touchdowns. He has helped the Cowboys to rank 3rd in the league for total points scored per game – with Dallas posting 27.5 points on average each time they take to the field.
The Packers meanwhile, finally gained another win last week, defeating the Atlanta Falcons 22-21. They will now want to build on that with another win this week. If they can do so, they have the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears left on their schedule to close out the regular season.
