Green Bay has their ranking because of who they've played not because they're that good. They've played 3 teams with winning records and lost to two of them. They lost to a team that had been winless to that point. They've very beatable and we shouldn't be heading into this game thinking it's a sure loss.
Yeah, that potent second half (which is overshadowing a sloppy first half) against the Cowboys still doesn't mask all the problems on GB's offensive line.
Dallas has an OK defense, but their pass-rush didn't make up for the fact that their secondary is just plain pedestrian (which is why they never capitalized upon Aaron's mistakes).
We run a 3-4 base with a far more talented secondary that sometimes makes up for the lacking PR (and a D-line that hasn't allowed a QB-thrown TD in 'almost' 3 straight games).
People are also forgetting that a lot is at stake here, so nobody should pencil in an instant loss for either team.
