It's fun to watch the Dallas Cowboys' offense and see how their talented QB Tony Romo will improvise and execute. The Cowboys are coming off a big Thursday night win against the Green Bay Packers and locking up the home field advantage in the playoffs is the goal for Dallas. While Dallas is trying to secure the opportunity to host as many home games as possible in the post season, the Detroit Lions are fighting to keep their chances alive for an NFC wild card.
The Lions are coming off four straight losses and are looking for a big win this weekend that could catapult them to finish off the season by earning a playoff spot. Before that happens, the Lions' offense has to get back to when it was helping win games, and surprisingly that was by running the football. During the Lions last four losses, the offense hasn't been able to establish the run game and that in part translates to losing the time of possession battle. The Lions have to get back to what got them wins, or else this will be another typical season for Detroit on the losing end. There are six other teams in the NFC that are only within one win of the Lions, so the pressure has mounted for Detroit.
