On Sunday we learned three things in the NFC. First thing is the Cheeseheads will be hosting the Giants in a must-see Wild Card game. Secondly, Tony Romo looks confident despite the rust and last but not least, the Giants did what they said they would—try and win.

Packers Win NFC North, Next A Date With Giants

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (9-6-1 ATS) went into Detroit in week 17 and defeated the Lions (10-6 Over), winning the NFC North Home-field advantage this coming Wild Card weekend. Packers will be hosting the New York Giants on Sunday.

The Packers have now W6 SU and got decent production from QB Rodgers (300 yards, 4 TDs), rejuvenated WR Jordy Nelson and WR Davante Adams who had 2 key TD catches for the Cheeseheads in the 2nd Half to help shake up the NFL Playoff Picture, sending the Wild Card Lions to face the #3-seed Seahawks in Seattle on Saturday night.


Giants Rain On Redskins Parade

The New York Giants are always a dangerous team and the Redskins were reminded of that on Sunday as the G-Men downed Washington, 19-10, winning outright as big 9½-point underdogs. Kirk Cousins (2 interceptions) and the Redskins only have themselves to blame, as besides that damned Tie (CIN)—3 of 4 with Ties failed to make Postseason—Washington L4-6 down the stretch with the home loss in Week 16 to Carolina being a killer.

Two of the most dangerous teams in the NFC collide in the opening round with the Giants-Packers showdown in Green Bay with both QBs, Rodgers, and Eli Manning having won Super Bowls.


Cowboys Rest Ezekiel Elliott

The Cowboys have the #1 seed in the NFC, thus will be getting Wild Card weekend off as they wait for anyone but the G-Men (2-0 vs. DAL in 2016) at Jerry World on Sunday, Jan. 15 which seems like an awful long time from now.

On Sunday in week 17, Dallas lost to Carson Wentz and the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, 27-13 as Dak Prescott (4-8 passing), Tony Romo (3-4, TD) and Mark Sanchez (9-17, 2 interceptions, 5.3 QBR) all got playing time. And should Rookie Prescott get hurt or struggle in the postseason, at least America’s Team v2.0 has the 36-year-old veteran Romo to turn to.
