NFL Matchup: Aaron Rodgers And Green Bay Packers Offense vs. Jared Allen-Led Minnesota Vikings Defense
Packers Offense vs. Vikings Defense
No one will be resting in the Packers offense, as Green Bay has plenty to play for this week. With the chance to secure a first round bye, and at least one home game in the playoffs, the Packers want this win badly, but don’t need it like the Vikings. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are winners of 9 of the last 10, and look to eliminate the Vikings before having to potentially play them in a playoff scenario. Rodgers is once again leading one of the more effective offenses in the NFL, ranked 13th in total yards, and 7th in scoring offense. The Minnesota Vikings 16th ranked defense has a tough time ahead of them in containing the dynamic Packers offense.

NFL Matchups: Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, and The Dallas Cowboys Offense vs. The Washington Redskins Defense
Cowboys Offense vs. Redskins Defense
Tony Romo and Dez Bryant have been on fire as of late, connecting for 43 receptions for 721 yards and 9 touchdowns in the last 6 games. They will need to continue their success, as it is win or go home game for Dallas. Dallas can win the NFC East with a win over the Redskins, or see their playoff hopes destroyed on the road against their passionate divisional rival Redskins. This game should see it’s share of offense, as the Cowboys 6th ranked overall offense will aim for big points against the Redskins 28th overall defense.

MFL Matchup: Robert Griffin III and The Washington Redskins Offense vs. Demarcus Ware and The Dallas Cowboys Defense
Redskins Offense vs. Dallas Defense
The Redskins have a chance to lock up the NFC East divisional title with a win over the Dallas Cowboys on the last regular season game of 2012. Washington still can get into the playoffs with losses by both Chicago and Minnesota, even if they lose to the Cowboys. Leading Washington’s 5th overall offense will be a healthier Robert Griffin III, facing him will be a banged up Demarcus Ware and the Cowboys 19th ranked overall defense.

NFL Matchups: Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson, And The Detroit Lions Offense vs. John Abraham And The Atlanta Falcons Defense
The Detroit Lions are coming off a terrible loss, in which Matt Stafford threw 3 interceptions and the Lions lost to an Arizona Cardinals team that had not won in 2 months. The Lions 2nd ranked offense in total yards will be motivated to end their losing streak, and hoping Calvin Johnson can claim a piece of history. They face a Falcons team ranked 14th in total defense, that is looking to gain added defensive momentum after shutting out the defending champion New York Giants last week. Atlanta needs one win to go into the playoffs with a first round bye and home field advantage.
