Green Bay Loses To Chicago, Dallas Clinches Homefield

romo-1st-td-v-gb.jpgAs unlikely as it seems, the Bears thrashed the Packers 35-7 at Soldier Field on a very cold and blustery day where Favre threw two interceptions, one for a pick-six by Brian Urlacher and they had two punts blocked.  The loss by the Pack now gives the Cowboys home field throughout the playoffs and the possibility of playing for the NFC Championship at home. 

Their most likely opponent after the bye week is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have clinched the NFC South but have the worst record of divisonal champions, if the Seahawks can win their last game, that is.   They will probably play and beat the NY Giants, who also clinched the first wild-card slot in the NFC with a 38-21 win over Buffalo in another windy, cold atmosphere. 

Terrell Owens’ ankle MRI showed just a sprain so it is most likely he will miss the last game at Washington.  But the good news is, WR Terry Glenn will most likely make his season debut in Washington, so it would be in Dallas’ best interest to let T.O. recover heading into the bye week.

Congrats to this year’s Cowboys team!

    It wasn’t really the least likely scenario, Green Bay has already lost once to Chicago. It wasn’t anticipated by many but still a pretty good Christmas Present for a team who has suffered quite a few injuries in the last two weeks.
