Packers keys to a win in Big D.

by Ryan Fantozzi

It's week 15 already. Where the heck did the season go?! All right Packers fans, we might be at 6-6-1 but with some help from the rest of the NFC North we are still in the thick of things! Here is how I see the Pack pulling out a win in Dallas. 

1. Be Aggressive on offense: Remember how many yards the Packers gave up in 2011 during the 15-1 season? Well take that defense and put it in a Dallas uniform who gives up even more yards. Matt Flynn looked pretty good running the fast paced, no-huddle offense last week. I hope McCarthy picks up the tempo today. Eddie Lacy is also suiting up and even though he has a tender ankle, he should still be able to carve up this defense. 

2. Play tough in the red zone: The Packers have given up a ridiculous amount of yards since Aaron Rodgers went down. I don't see them slowing down Dallas' offense today so trying to make the Cowboys settle for field goals once getting inside the red zone will be key to pulling out a win today. 

3. Pressure- The Packers have had a full compliment of rushers on the field the last few weeks, Clay Matthews needs to step up and make a play. He has had a very quiet return from his broken thumb. The trio of him, Nick Perry and Mike Neal on the outside as well as inside rushers like Mike Daniels and first-round pick Datone Jones need to pressure Tony Romo today.
