Everyone is looking forward to Thursday's game between Dallas and Green Bay, and for good reason. It pits two storied franchises, two exceptional quarterbacks and the two best teams in the NFC against one another in a game that very well could determine where the rematch is played in January with the right to advance to the Super Bowl.

Green Bay has one of the best defenses in the entire league and one of the most important matchups on Thursday will be between the Cowboys' receivers and the Packers' cornerbacks. In this matchup, the Cowboys' receivers will usually be lined up in tight man-to-man coverage against the Packers' elite cornerbacks. The CB tandem of Al Harris and Charles Woodson is probably the best in the league. While the Packers' front seven is deep, very athletic, aggressive and well-coached, their production is glorified by the dirty work that Harris and Woodson are doing against opposing wide receivers.
