Yeah I mean I didn't mean for it to sound like I don't beleive either team has comeback abilities. Clearly they're 2 of the most explosive offenses in the league, if not the most.
So we know both sides can score in the blink of an eye (Terrance 70+ yard TD in 5 seconds... Jordy play action reception for 60 yard TD... Etc). We see them do it often. Neither team will be out of it until the very end (captain obvious).
What I meant though is I think the odds of the Cowboys coming back from a 2 touchdown deficit in the 2nd half are a lot higher then the Packers chances.
As good as Rodgers is (and obviously he's my favorite player), I'm always honest. Put him 2 touchdowns down in the 4th quarter with minimal time of possession (because of Demarco killing the clock and running for first down after first down) and high pressure... It might not end too well. I can honestly admit in those types of situations he's definitely been, "shaky."
It's similar for the Cowboys, put Romo down 2 touchdowns in the 4th and have Lacy killing the clock and he can be just as shaky too. I just think the odds favor the Cowboys stopping Lacy when they have to rather than the Packers stopping Demarco when they have to.
