Byron Hunt Breaks Down Giants At Packers [AUDIO]

In the 2011 season finale, Manning caught fire.

So of the three, the Giants seem like the clear-cut team that would present the most hard challenge for the Cowboys, right?

Prescott tied Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger (2004) for the most wins by a rookie quarterback in the Super Bowl era with 13. I sat there with my friends, a few die hard cheeseheads, and actually had the audacity to doubt Aaron Rogers since even they were wondering if their guy had lost whatever made him so great in the years prior.

Week 5 wasn't necessarily the best of times for the New York Giants (then 2-2) or the worst of times for the Green Bay Packers (the perennial playoff team that started the season 4-6), but what is clear is that both teams are seemingly light years away from that early season matchup.

They had won five straight heading into Sunday night's showdown with Detroit. The Jay Cutler experiment that has seen a number of coaches and coordinators, wide receivers and running backs try to turn the historically defensive-minded Bears into an offensive powerhouse, has failed.

Each of Dallas' potential match-ups brings its own discomforts.

NY played their best football in the middle of the season when they had a six game win streak of their own.




None of that's to say the Cowboys don't have a chance to advance. "They also will be moving around in and out of the crowd, passing off money and tickets to other organized scalpers to keep from being tracked". Instead, maybe it's the Giants, who swept the Cowboys this season, that are the team fans are most apprehensive about facing.

TicketIQ identified the most expensive Cowboys home games since 2010, and four, including the upcoming playoff game, have come this season. "Third time's a charm, right?"

Just a year ago, Zeke Elliott was playing in the College Football Playoffs, and the 25 days off between Ohio State's conference championship win (where he rushed for 220 yards) and their semifinal game against the vaunted Alabama defense saw Elliott dominate Nick Saban's team in epic fashion - carrying the Buckeyes with 230 yards on the ground and two touchdowns. They are no longer the team the Cowboys handily knocked off 30-16 on October 16. But his stellar play has undeniably provided the Packers with a dynamic threat lined up behind Rodgers.

First they must get through the Packers. Conversely, the Packers' secondary is considerably banged up, and won't have a bye week to get everyone healthy.

The Cowboys generally have been a dominant force this year, but in one respect they have been dominated. Still, they did trail 21-14 in the first half before the defense rallied to shut down the Lions and Highland Park-grown Matthew Stafford in the second half.

As for Detroit, the Cowboys would likely feel good about that rematch.

Should the Cowboys make it past their first weekend in the playoffs, they'll play in their first NFC Championship game since January 14, 1996, on January 22.
